Could someone help me revive the brown leather design and strap of my Celine bag? This bag is my favorite and I want to put life into it again, bring it to its glory. Hope you could all share tips.

Thank you so much.

A good shoe repair shop will be able to clean, repair, update, etc., your bag.

Did you purchase this handbag new? Do you know for certain it is a genuine Celine and not a "knock-off/fake"?

If it genuine - then - Considering the cost of almost any Celine handbag I would not recommend trying to do any cleaning or repairs with any "home" products.

Ordinarily, I would also recommend a local repair shop but - with a handbag like this???
There might be a local shoe repair shop in your area that would know something about "refurbishing" a purse but probably NOT one in/of this price category.

If you were to first tell the repair man the approximate cost of this purse and ask if he would guarantee not to mess up your bag - most likely he wouldn't touch it "with a ten foot pole".

Celine will almost always clean and repair their handbags - AND - many times the repair/cleaning is free - they may even send you a postage paid shipping box to ship it in.


Here is an email link to Celine that may get you started on what to expect from their customer services division:

If you find that you have a nice looking "fake" Celine then a local repair shop could probably do a very good job.

If you still wish to try some home solutions then you should first try to determine all types of material your bag is made of.
You can probably find a lot of suggestions on Google for each type of material.

As for leather, I often use leather cleaning/restoring products from my local auto store or even from the automotive section in Walmart or Target stores.

Good luck with restoring your lovely handbag.

Maybe you could post back with what you decide to do and let us know how it works out for you.

Holidays soon - hope they are ones to remember with love.

There is a product called EZ Kote. I bought it on Amazon. I fixed my handbag handles with it.
