Common Problems and Solutions with Leather Handbags:
Stains in Leather
    Body oils, perspiration, grease, spills, ink stains on leather can be reasonably cleaned. A badly stained leather
    garment can be saved by Cleaning AND Recoloring.
Ink on Leather
    Ball point pen ink can not be removed from painted finishes without removing the surface paint as well.  The solution
    is: to remove the ink marks, then redye or recolor the affected area after ink removal.
Color Loss
    Dyes can oxidize from exposure to UV light and gases in the atmosphere. This is a slow progressive condition that
    develops with age. It may become more noticeable after cleaning.  If Dye has been lost significantly or you experience
    uneven, blotchy light/dark color, we can reDye your leather handbag, purset for a newer, fresh look.
Thin Skin
    Some skins are extremely thin due to overstreching in the tanning process (to yield more squarefootage of the skin).  
    These skins will wear exceptionally fast and cleaning will further aggravate the damage of thin skins. Rips, tears,
    troubled wrinkles can occur, these are almost impossible to repair because the leather is overstreched too thin and
    very weak.

    When cleaning . moisture is added to leather, it can distort its shape and/or shrink. This is especially true when
    lesser quality leathers are used in manufacturing in order to meet acceptable pricing in the marketplace.
Imperfections of Leather like Scars & Tissues
    The manufacturer use artificial "fillers" to cover up imperfections in the skins, like scars & vein marks. Hides are then
    batch dyed before being made up into a garment ensuring uniformity of color on the finished garments .These
    imperfections may become more apparent over time or after cleaning as the filer compound gets thinner or even
    washed away.  We can touch up the affected areas with matching color but there's not much to do hide these original
    scars and tissues.  These are ... natural. Remember "leather is a ... SKIN", veins, marks, scars is somewhat
