Leather artist teaches how to repair scratches and dents on the leather bag
Vintage salvatore bought by his companion Siberian blue robin
The back of Ferragamo
Unexpected shape loss, wrinkles, scratches due to leather dents,
And since the serious scratches on the handle were noticeable,
I repaired it in a hurry.
Leisure people’s main business is the production of small leather goods, so a well-made bag
The repair was interesting.
The specialty of leisure people is tannin tanning,
The texture of Ferragamo’s chrome-tanned back
Similar to the texture of tannins,
I haven’t seen you much these days
It was of good quality and beautifully made, so
This repair method may have worked.
Applying repair and polishing methods for leather shoes,
Wrinkles, dents and scratches are much less noticeable
I came back to a beautiful bag.
This time, I have to repair it, and I have dents, scratches and wrinkles on the leather.
I will write about how to fix it.
I will also write about care, so
If you refer to it, it will be very useful.
It can also be applied to leather shoes and small leather goods.
* For tannin-tanned dyeing,
The method changes a little.
What to prepare
1. Shoe polish
(The color that is close to the color of leather and one tone deep is the best.)
This time Ferragamo was brown, but I chose Bordeaux.
2. Pig bristle brush (for applying cream)
3. Horsehair brush (for polishing)
4. Flannel cloth or 100% cotton cloth
5. Steam iron
7. Stain remover
8. Shoe cream (clear) (← using tapir)
For handle repair
Nume leather, thread, needle, bond

Check the color tone.

Check for deformation.

Put a double towel on the leather and watch the leather.
While issuing steam
Apply an iron to smooth out the wrinkles on the leather and shape it.
