Our handbag care specialists inspect each item that comes in from top to bottom. We recognize the importance of examining all straps, hardware, clasps, corners, inside linings, and inside each pocket for possible previous repairs to the bag. We recognize that it is important to know when a bag or other accessory has had repairs made it it. If we do find that a repair has been made to an item, we find out who did the repair, why it was made and when. We know that many luxury brands refuse to conduct further repairs to an item if repairs have been done to an item by anyone but them. We disclose all repairs that we find, if any as well as any information we are able to find out about the repair.
