Designer Handbags, The New "Hot" Leather

While designer handbags have been around for years, finding a professional to clean them is difficult. Dry Cleaners will often turn customers away but Without A Trace is the answer. We have provided professional handbag cleaning for some time and current tight economy is creating opportunities to grow this service area.

"Restoring" versus "replacing" has become a common expression today. You may consider extending the life of your expensive designer leather or suede handbag by cleaning it rather than buying a new one. You just need to know the service is available.

Most leather and suede handbags will be pre-spotted and hand cleaned. However, the next step is what separates us from the other cleaners. We have the tools to restore color and maintain feel in the refinishing process. We use proprietary products for cleaning and refinishing that are not available to other cleaners.

Basic repairs services are also available. Replacing zippers, sewing open seams, fixing "D" rings and more can be done by our in-house repair department.

The Best of the Robb Report June 2003 by W.K.
Weaving legacies. Even with climate-controlled cedar closets to preserve fine fabrics and keep moths at bay, clothing takes a pounding from the wear and tear of frequent use. When it comes to repairing insect holes, pulled threads and large tears in superfine wools, no one has more experience than Without A Trace.

The Chicago firm, which was founded by Michael Ehrlich more than 2 decades ago, is one of a handful of companies still specializing in the dying of french weaving. The practice involves dissecting the garment's original fabric structure, snipping threads from unseen areas such as inside seams, and interweaving the exact same pattern over the hole, one thread at a time. For a small moth hole, the handwork can require 2 hours or more. Another process called inweaving, is used for larger tears and involves placing a square of cut cloth over the damage and reweaving the garment's threads through the patch for a seamless match. Without A Trace uses similar techniques for knitwear and can also repair damages to leather.
