SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, May 20, 2021 / — Professional designer handbag cleaning is one of Margaret's core services and is performed entirely by hand, as it requires masterful skill and experience. Cleaning techniques vary depending on the material, nature, and extent of soil; unlike regular clothes, handbags don't come with care label tags! The experienced handbag cleaning specialists at Margaret's know how to care for a great variety of fabrics, treating a wide variety of soil, ink, dyes, and oils found on most leather and suede handbags. They clean, repair & detail purses, handbags, travel bags, wallets & luggage to help you maintain their original appearance.

In addition to cleaning, handbags often require some level of repair, from a simple re-edging to a complete deconstruction and rebuild. Margaret's handbag department includes a 27-year experienced Hermès Master Craftsman. In addition, Margaret's experts perform restoration services on Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and all high-end accessory brands. Margaret today has an unmatched reputation for both the highest quality repair and restorations and "white gloves" customer service.

Margaret's cleaning experts can clean and/or restore your favorite handbags, travel bags, clutches, luggage, and more. Full-feature services include cleaning, refinishing, restoration, mold removal, repairs, conditioning, water repellent, sterilization, and deodorizing. No matter what their condition is, they are brought back to a like-new appearance.

Margaret’s caters to retailers through its Retailer Alliance Program. Since 1995 Margarets has partnered with the finest couture retailers and boutiques to maintain their full range of stock merchandise, assist with customer spot and damage issues, and provide cost-effective uniform cleaning. Margarets specializes in the restoration of damaged garments, often “saved” items that were improperly handled by other cleaners, and managed to remove stains that others were not able to do. Treatments start with a complimentary analysis and consultation regarding unusual issues that could occur.

Margaret's regularly processes items for other dry cleaners across the Nation. Their wholesale cleaning and repair department has the skills to handle things beyond the scope or equipment of many. The most expensive and delicate garments that were accidentally damaged during a standard cleaning process are often saved by Margaret's experts. Extensive repairs, refinishing, and restoration of vintage clothes are Margaret's specialties.

When in doubt, don't trust those unique pieces to an unproven dry cleaner. Margaret's just launched a new worldwide CleanByMail® service for cleaning or repairing your handbags, ties, leathers, suedes, sweaters, knits, or even preserving your wedding gown, no matter where you live. The bespoke service extends to custom shipping boxes with each garment properly packaged for its protection. You can obtain a request form on Margaret's website to accompany your order at:
