Is there any way to fix this. Bleach spilt on my purse and this happened and, of course, this purse is no longer sold.
Since the purse is black, you're in luck. You can use one of two things to cover this oops. A black Sharpie or black cream shoe polish. Either one might take a few coats to really blend out the bleach spot. I fI were you, if you use the Sharpie, I would also cover THAT with the shoe polish too, to give it a shinier look to match the rest of the purse better. Good luck, and let us all know how it goes.
If this is a favorite purse and you do not wish to take a chance on making matters worse, I would suggest you either contact the brand company to see if they do repairs or talk with someone at the store where purchased or any high-end store to see if they can recommend a shop that does this type of repair/restoration.
You can use shoe polish or markers but it will not turn out like I feel sure you would want it to. There are many shades of black and they do not always blend in when used like this.
Your purse needs to be professionally redyed if you wish to use it in public (unless the DIY repairs look does not matter to you).
You may be able to find repair shops with Google and your zip code but if it was my purse, I would rather try to find a shop that a good store recommends.
Dye it black.

How do I fix bleached leather? Can I color it in?
Use a permanent marker to cover the spots, good luck.
You could also use shoe polish the same color as the leather (the brand Meltonian, available in shoe repair stores has lots of colors - or even use cream makeup the same color) to blend in larger areas.
The bleach has removed the color-coat from the top of your leather. With 20 years in the biz, I am happy to suggest do-it-yourself solutions when possible. In this case, I don't suggest do it yourself is the way to go. You need to match the color, refinish the area and re-topcoat the leather.
how do I find a professional to bleach a dark brown oversized chair
How did you remove the bleach stain from your chair
Hello and thanks. In my case, it was an expensive "pro" who damaged the leather. Took a "winter white" bag to be cleaned--they returned it with two random dark spots surrounded by a white area where they'd tried to clean the spots off.
I spilled bleach inside of my car. It is black leather. Can it be repaired?
Well I mean its bleach so Im not sure. If you could it would take awhile tho.
I think you may have to have that panel of your seat redone but your dealer will tell you if that is the case.
There are leather dyes. Do you own the car or lease it? If leased, definitely contact them and ask what to do.
I also found bleach had leaked onto my car seat. It's "softex" (Toyota) so not leather-leather. The dealer suggested diluting it as much as possible by spraying with water and using a shop-vac to suck it up, repeatedly.
My concern is more about the electronics in the car (heated and cooled seats) but they feel that it should be ok if it's not doused with water and vacuumed up immediately. If it leaves a stain, their only suggestion is to reupholster that seat.
I have a bleach stain on a new leather chair. Is there any way to remove it?
I would contact the manufacturer about that, because that sounds like a professional would have to be consulted with that, or recover it. I am sorry about that.
You could try using a felt tip pen in the closest possible color and coloring in the spot.
Bleach doesn't actually stain it actually 'bleaches' out the colour so there's no way to 'remove' it. Disguising it would be your best bet - with the felt tip previously mentioned or shoe polish may work if its brown. As its new I would also contact the manufacturer.
I used to own a leathercraft store and had to deal with that problem, for a few customers. You have to recolor the leather.
Do NOT use shoe polish, if it is in an area, which may rub off on someone's clothes.
There is a great product for this, in a spray-on form, called Nu-Life Color Spray, which can sometimes be found in shoe repair stores or online. Unfortunately, you can't really mix this to "match", but they come in a WIDE variety of colors, so you should be able to come VERY close to the color of your furniture.
The great thing about these, is that they have the "sealer" built in, so it's almost a one-step procedure.
The most important thing to remember, when you're matching the colors, is that for one thing, it will look different on each color that you spray it over, and two that it will be a little bit darker, until it dries, so don't panic.
Don't "over-spray" because it will look slightly darker, if you overlap the original color.
I hope this helps and good luck.
