The handbag

This Givenchy Antigona is defined by a unique, trapezoidal shape for which the bag is instantly recognisable. Something for which we also know these bags is their tendency to start sagging and lose their lose shape over time. While this sagging is a natural consequence of the goatskin leather ageing, it makes for an unsightly slouch in the bag's posture and unnecessary difficulty in simply getting the bag to stand up straight.

When this customer reached out to us for a free diagnosis/quote, we reviewed the photos she submitted and offered to reshape the bag, restoring its original trademark shape.

Reshaping the handbag

Restoring a handbag's shape as we have done here is quite a complicated process known to relatively few in the leather repair industry, but involves specially treating the leather before reinforcing particular parts of the bag's interior.
