    Question Chanel Goatskin restoration

    Hi; I have this beautiful Chanel goatskin that has some stains or discoloration on the surface, itÂ’s originally a gunmetal color; can you help me figure out how to fix this? Do I need to repaint the bag? Which kit would work best? Thank you!

    >>> Hi; I have this beautiful Chanel goatskin that has some stains or discoloration on the surface,

    Stains will need to be removed, discoloration will need color to camouflage it.


    >>> itÂ’s originally a gunmetal color;

    Can you open the flap and take a look at the hidden area?


    >>> can you help me figure out how to fix this?

    Yes, we shall discuss depending on the kit that you pick.

    >>> Do I need to repaint the bag?

    Yes, I recommend using an Aniline dyestuff that will bring you close to the original Chanel black bag.


    >>>Which kit would work best?

    Thank you! This is the inside of the bag, I guess I am not sure if these are actually stains or some discoloration etc.

    Can you please give me the restoration steps using this kit? (I am new to this to the more detailed the better) thank you!

    It looks that the outside color still looks good comparing it with the inside except for the unknown stain that could be just a stain, pigmentation will not be able to get it out or these are mold growth if they smell musty below the surface.

    My recommendation is to restore it in steps.

    Step 1 is to give it a restorative cleaning using the Degreaser-2.2 > Acidifier-2.0 system with Leather Eraser-4 to the front to see some results if the stains are removed. From the picture, it looks like the stains come from within the leather, rather than from external sources.

    Step 2 is to hydrate and recondition the fatliquor (fat and oil) diminished content to restore the plumpness and suppleness of the leather with Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Fatliquor-5.0 system.

    These 2 steps are the 'wet process' and have to be performed as a continuous sequence.

    We would like to see the result before moving into the 'dry process'.
