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.
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 (breathable purse
storage bag 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. 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. See our price schedule for guidelines on the cost for various types of items.
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.
