Cleaning Handles of Dooney & Bourke Handbag

I have a tassel tote Dooney and Bourke bag. The handles and the strap have begun turning brown and dark. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can clean it?

Hi,

This is most likely sweat/oils/grease from your hands, which has caused this. This can be quite an expensive problem to fix.

You could use a colourant kit - http://www.furn  olourant_Kit.htm

However, inorder for a product like this to be sucessful, a colour match would be necessary and a sample of leather would need to be sent to Furniture Clinic for matching.

You could also have them restore it for you, or source a local leather restoration company to you.
