How It Works: Style Theory Bags Restore

Whether you’re an Earth-loving conscious consumer hoping to minimise your “buy-and-throw-away” habits, or a designer bag lover looking to give a well-loved bag a facelift, restoring your designer bags is one of the perfect ways to extending the lifespan of the bags you hold dear to your heart.

Designer bags are made to be timeless — handcrafted with the highest quality that’s made to last a lifetime. As much as we try to take great care of our closet’s masterpieces, there comes a time when you’d need to breathe new life into your designer bags.

Introducing Style Theory Bags Restore, a designer bag restoration experience like no other.

Since launching our designer bag subscription service in 2018, we’ve been working with our restoration partner, Kaya Leathers, to ensure that all 2,000+ designer bags on our platform are kept in excellent condition after every rental. 

After building our expertise and facility over the years, we’re now opening our studio doors to all designer bag lovers to help you restore your designer bags back to life!

What services does Style Theory Bags Restore provide?

Our industry-leading restoration experts excel in three main services — stain reduction, colour touch-ups, and leather edge restoration. We use cutting-edge tools and premium materials to pamper your designer bags because frankly, they deserve nothing less.

Stain Reduction

Looking to get rid of water stains, pen ink marks, or lipstick smudges off your leather bag? Don’t go into a panic rubbing harsh detergents onto your leather bag — we’ve got just the solution for you.

At our studios, we encounter stains and marks like makeup, ink, food, and glue stains quite often. To reduce these stains, we use various specialised cleansing agents to gently yet effectively lift stains right off your designer bag. 

As stain reduction depends on the bag’s material, existing condition, and how long the stain has set in, there are cases where certain stains can’t be removed without compromising the integrity of your bag’s material — be it leather, fabric, suede, or nubuck. In such a case, the next best approach is a colour touch-up service to cover up the stain’s appearance.

Colour Touch-Ups

Improper storage or frequent use can subject your designer bags to harsh UV rays, humidity, and oxidation, causing your bag’s leather colour to dull, fade, or even oxidise into a more yellowed shade. 

Then, there are the inevitable colour transfers — be it from dye transfers from a new pair of jeans, nail polish marks, or from other garments. Once dye penetrates the leather skin of your bag, it’s near to impossible to remove it with a mere swipe of a wet cloth. 

To restore colour to an area of your bag, our experts carefully hand-mix a custom blend of water-based acrylic paint that is airbrushed and blended seamlessly to the surrounding areas to conceal surface blemishes and then, sealed with a layer of coating.

Edge restoration

Frequent use of your favourite designer bag might lead to the leather edges wearing off or cracking, leaving the raw leather exposed. Not only does this compromise the durability of your valuable designer bag, but it’s also not a great look! 

Edge coating is a type of finishing which protects the edges of the underlying leather. To protect the underlying leather, our experts carefully buff away cracked or compromised edge coating, and meticulously hand-paint layers of edge paint for a smooth new coating that’s both beautiful and long-lasting.
