Did you know that your leather handbags could be restored back to life? Yes that's right! Chanel, Hermes, Dior bags have the wonderful option of being restored to like new again, and with the handbag spa products developed with Designer leathers in mind, the maintenance and protection of your bags is now a reality. Leathers are not all equal and products for car leathers are not recommend for handbag leathers - so trust your leather handbags to the founders of the handbag spa concept and technology Lovin My Bags by Barbara.
Price varies according to the handbag: complexity of the design, complexity of the color matching, type of services desired and type of leather.
The condition of the leather is a very important factor affecting the restoration process. If the leather has been cleaned with highly alkaline products such as saddle soap and other soap and detergent based cleaners, the leather will suffer pH damage; this will affect the end result of the restoration process.
We do NOT recommend shoe polishes or furniture & car related leather products for your luxury bags, as most of these products are not pH safe and contain lanolin and mink oils, certain silicones and waxes - all of which interfere with restoration and may cause damage to finer leathers.
