Can your soiled Louis Vuitton blue and cream Damier Azur handbag be saved?

At RAVE FabriCARE, we see many Louis Vuitton coated canvas handbags with natural cowhide leather trim on a monthly basis (for example, see here, here and here).

These coated canvas handbags include brown monogrammed coated canvas handbags, white and black multicolore monogrammed coated canvas handbags, and blue and cream Damier Azur monogrammed coated canvas handbags.

Over the years, we've developed a successful track record cleaning the exterior, interior and natural cowhide leather trim of brown monogrammed as well as white and black multicolore monogrammed coated canvas handbags. When it comes to cleaning blue and cream Damier Azur monogrammed handbags, however, success can be fleeting.

The problem is that the exterior coated canvas of blue and cream Damier Azur handbags stains quite easily, particularly if vigorously rubbed against a dark garment such as indigo dyed blue jeans or a black or navy dress whose dyes are not of the highest quality.

A good example of a Louis Vuitton blue and cream Damier Azur handbag that defied all attempts at exterior cleaning was this Damier Azur Speedy that arrived with a large yellow stain on the underside.

The problem with this Damier Azur Speedy was that the yellow stain could not be safely removed without simultaneously removing some or all of the blue pattern.

On the other hand, if the exterior coated canvas of your Damier Azur handbag is in relatively good condition (meaning that the exterior canvas is only lightly soiled), the likelihood that your Damier Azur handbag can be safely and expertly cleaned is relatively high. More often than not, we find that the exterior canvas is in relatively good condition but that the natural cowhide leather trim and the interior is heavily soiled and/or stained.

A perfect example of this latter situation was this relatively new Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Berkeley that arrived in the mail with cosmetic stains on the interior, heavily ingrained soil on the natural cowhide leather trim and oil deposits from the hands on the handles.

In this case, we were able to gently clean the exterior coated canvas (while retaining the intensity and clarity of the blue coloration), remove various cosmetic stains from the interior, restore the natural cowhide leather trim to as close to "like new" condition as was technically feasible, and extract most of the oil from the handles.

My overall assessment of the results achieved? Not perfection, but pretty good. Especially when you take into consideration how deeply the soil had penetrated the natural cowhide leather trim. (By the way, when it comes to hand cleaning and restoring handbags, perfection is almost never attainable. The very best technologically achievable results? Yes. Perfection? Almost never).

If you're looking for a handbag cleaning specialist, please remember this: All handbags, purses, wallets and backpacks should be cleaned BY HAND. Never BY MACHINE. And, then, only by a cleaner who specializes in these accessories. And, the only way to ensure that the cleaner does, in fact, specialize in these accessories is to make sure that the cleaner has a FULL TIME handbag and purse cleaner ON PREMISES.

RAVE FabriCARE is the only cleaner in Arizona, and one of the very few in the USA, that employs a full time handbag cleaner whose sole job is to hand clean handbags, purses, wallets and backpacks. Unlike other cleaners, we'd never clean by machine and we'd never send your accessories to outside third parties for cleaning. That way we're able to deliver the very best technologically achievable results and return your items, in most cases, in a week and a half to two weeks.
