Thread: Gucci Python Bag Needs t o be Reglazed

    Default Gucci Python Bag Needs t o be Reglazed

    Hi there! The scales on my python bag were lifting, so I purchased Saphir Reptan Exotic Leather conditioner to make sure the scales go back down. Using Saphir Reptan worked as the bag isn't as dry, but now the parts where I put the conditioner matted out the bag. I have also tried to buff and polish the python skin, but it still remains matted. What products would I need to restore the glossiness/re-glaze the bag? Thank you!

    >>> What products would I need to restore the glossiness/re-glaze the bag?

    It is a super high-gloss product that we used in our services to restore its high gloss and is only recommended in a full restoration as follows:

    1- All existing unwanted conditioner has to be removed.
    2- The skin has to be hydrated to relax the shrinkage.
    3- Original fatliquor need to be replenished to rectify the shrinkage.
    4- Physical manipulation to uncurl the scale flat.
    5- The skin is restored to its original matching glossiness.
    6- Rub-resistant protection reduces wear to the gloss.

    You can email me to arrange for a sample restoration.

    Hi Roger! Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I'm not based in the United States and was hoping to just send my relatives the products as they are coming to visit my country. Is there any other way to restore the gloss using products? Among the restoration services in my country, no one seems to offer for exotics. Thanks! Have a great day!

    I just restored an alligator bag for Chanel for their customer.

    The first picture shows the finishes damages and the second pictures restored to pre-existing condition with a one year warranty.

    A high level of skill is required as in your situation, the scales need to be rejuvenated and restored to eliminate curling before the high gloss is refinished.
