Yves Saint Laurent
And Many More
Professional purse cleaning is performed entirely by hand and requires skill and experience. Cleaning techniques vary depending on the construction material, type and extent of soil.
Your handbag cleaning specialist must know how to deal with a great variety of fabrics, as well as the proper cleaning of leather and suede purses. A typical shoe repair company is not equipped to address the varied materials and types of soil found on most purses.
Purse cleaning procedures may include the following:
• Individual stain removal
• Hand clean outer surfaces
• Hand clean lining
• Hand clean strap and hardware
• Dye rejuvenation (if applicable)
• Steam finishing
• Stain repellant (if desired)
• Packaging (a breathable purse
storage bag is included with every order)
Restoration of a vintage or damaged purse or luggage may be preferred to replacement. Restoration techniques include extensive cleaning, dying, stitching, and material or hardware replacement.
Bring your purse in to one of our three locations or include it with your delivery cleaning order. You may also mail it to our CleanByMail service. If requested, we will provide a cost estimate before we begin work.
Pricing variables include size, construction material, whether there are trims of contrasting materials, how soiled it is, and whether it requires repairs. Please email us and request our price schedule for guidelines on the cost for various types of items. Or you may visit this on line form and submit an estimate for your handbag.
Purse Care & Storage Tips
• Never store your purses in the bottom of a closet. Leather is hygroscopic & will absorb the excess moisture (especially on slab floors), which causes mold & mildew.
• Avoid storing purses in plastic bags. Use breathable fabric bags to protect from dust & control moisture damage. Consider Margaret’s custom manufactured purse storage bags available at our stores.
