Christian Dior Handbag Restoration

Tote handbag leather cleaning, conditioning and colour restoration

Customer location

Swanbourne in Perth, Western Australia

The handbag

This Christian Dior handbag is an elegant piece that draws attention to its quilted leather exterior, but the bag had clearly seen better days with significant discolouration throughout the bag’s exterior caused not only by ingrained dirt along the stitch lines but also gradual removal of the bag’s colour through abrasion of the leather’s outer layers.

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 on the bag: cleaning and conditioning the leather and then restoring its original colour.

Leather cleaning and conditioning

We cleaned and conditioned the leather throughout the bag to get rid of all surface and ingrained dirt and to nourish the leather.

Leather colour restoration

With the leather cleaned and conditioned, we custom mixed a dye to match the original colour of the bag and proceeded to refinish the leather to restore its original colour.
