Chanel Shoe Restoration

Flats leather cleaning, conditioning and leather restoration

Customer location

Canning Vale in Perth, Western Australia

The shoes

These Chanel nude ballet flats are an iconic piece, as popular today as they were half a century ago. The two tone lambskin leather on this pair had faded and accumulated significant dirt and scratches. When this customer reached out to us for a free diagnosis/quote, we reviewed the photos she submitted and offered to perform a full restoration.

Leather cleaning and conditioning

We first cleaned and conditioned the leather throughout the shoes, to remove all surface and ingrained dirt as well as nourish the leather in advance of the colour restoration.

Leather colour restoration

We custom-mixed dyes to recolour the leather, effectively making the scratches invisible and restoring the discoloured leather.
