Before initiating the cleaning process, it's very important that an expert assesses the state of your handbag. This evaluation will help you and your couture cleaning expert decide on the most suitable approach for your particular bag. Gucci purses are often made from a variety of materials. To further complicate things, there may be numerous stains that need to be removed. The best solution is to either stop by one of our locations in Southern California or schedule a video chat with one of our specialists.
Identifying the Material & Checking For Damage
Gucci handbags come in a variety of materials, such as nubuck leather, canvas, and suede. Recognizing the material is the initial step in selecting the right cleaning technique. Our experts will inspect your bag to identify the material and select the best cleaning method to restore your bag's vibrance. At the same time, they'll inspect for damaged areas such as worn lining, cracked leather, broken handles, and worn corners that need repair.

- Avoid Overstuffing: Overloading your handbag can cause it to lose its shape or put stress on the seams and hardware. Be mindful of the items you carry and avoid overstuffing.
- Keep it Dry: Exposure to water or excessive humidity can damage your handbag. Use a protective spray for leather or suede bags, and always carry an umbrella to shield your bag from rain.
- Rotate Your Handbags: Regularly rotating your handbags can help prevent excessive wear on a single bag. Give each of your bags a chance to rest and recover from daily use.

Valentino Handbag #3
Description of Services: A Rodeo Valentino boutique’s heartbroken client brought into their store what was a brand-new purse that she had recently purchased from them. This beautiful lambskin bag with contrasting quilted stitching and studded accents was destroyed (or so they all thought) by a large hand sanitizer spill. The client was going to throw it away...until they recommended Margaret’s Cleaners. They had learned over the years if there was any chance of successful cleaning or repairs of high-end items, Margaret’s is the only place to go.
"Margaret’s did not disappoint them! When it was delivered back to the store the employees raved! Here are some of the comments we heard... “Blown away” ... “An amazing save” ... “Truly astonishing” ... “Looks new again” ... “As though damage never happened” ... “Absolutely spectacular work!”
"Margaret’s is hands down, THE BEST!”
— The staff at the Rodeo
UPS just delivered my second Prada handbag to be cleaned by your business. I can't tell you how impressed I am by the beautiful results! The woman that called to tell me it was being shipped was so helpful and thorough. She was delightful and really went out of her way with customer service.
Though I live the majority of the time in Denver, I will always make a point of using your business whenever I am staying at our second home in La Jolla. Thank you!

No one in Tucson could clean my bag and have any confidence in the results. I found Margaret's on the internet. Thank you for the wonderful job that you did on my handbag. It looks better than new! I'm giving your information to my local dry cleaner as they are very interested in being able to refer clients to you who have similar problems as mine.

I was very pleased with how everything was handled. In today's world, it is wonderful to find a company with ""old world"" values. Thank you so much!
