Our Services


Cleaning your handbag requires in depth knowledge of leather and fabrics to ensure the best results. Handbags carry many germs and bacteria (more than a toilet!) so very special antibacterial products (tested by Initial Hygiene Services) are used to ensure your handbag is clean and healthy again

Ink Removal

Ink is, unfortunately, a very common problem! We guarantee to remove ink from leather but the results on suede and fabrics can vary

Stain Removal

Some stains can be dealt with very easily particularly on leather but others, (such as a carton of orange juice or a pint of Guinness) may require more specialist treatment. Results on fabric and suede can vary

Colour Restoration

Our expert colour mixologists ensure that your colour restoration is carried out to match the original of the handbag. Restoring the colour of your handbag will give it a great new lease of life

Corner & Edging Repair

Unfortunately, corners on handbags do get very worn over time however, our expert leather restorers will repair these using our specialist fillers and processes to make them match the original.

Colour Change

Mould Removal

What Our Customers Say

Cleo Lacey, Blogger & Influencer

I am thrilled with my Chanel Bag, it looks as good as the day I bought it. Thank you so much, I will be recommending you to my friends!

Amanda Stallworthy

I am so happy with my LV bag. You’ve worked wonders, I can’t believe you managed to get the inside so clean and remove all those ingrained stains! A 14 year old bag looks brand new and smells gorgeous! The dust bag it came back in was a lovely touch and totally unexpected. I would definitely send my bag back for another Spa break! Fantastic service, I highly recommend The Handbag Spa.

Isobel Daly

I sent a quite rare LV Alma for stain removal (puppy urine). Unfortunately the stain couldn’t be removed so it was suggested that the bag be dyed black. I was nervous to say the least, but the result is outstanding! I was kept informed of the process throughout. Would definitely recommend, thank you so much.
