CHANEL HANDBAG REPAIR | FAQS

Does Chanel offer a warranty on their repairs?

If your Chanel bag is authentic and was purchased from an official boutique it will usually come with a 1 year warranty that covers any manufacturing or structural faults. The Chanel warranty does not cover wear and tear, stains, discolouration or marks to the bag.

Do Chanel repair handbags?

Chanel repair or replace bags which are covered by their warranty meaning that the bags must have manufacturing or structural defects. Chanel will repair some bags (see Chanel repair policy below) either by outsourcing to a trusted local repairer such as our workshop or sending the item back to the manufacturer.

What is the Chanel repair policy?

Customers with authentic Chanel bags not covered by their warranty are referred to the Chanel Fashion After Sales department. Repairs or restorative work for these bags will either be outsourced to a local repairer or sent back to the manufacturer in Paris for larger jobs. The latter is a paid service which typically takes several months.

Do Chanel clean or restore handbags?

If your Chanel bag was not purchased from an authorised Chanel boutique or is more than 5 years old Chanel will not provide any cleaning, refinishing / recolouring or extensive refurbishing services to your bag. Alternatively we offer a professional cleaning and restorative service for all Chanel bags.

Do you “bag spa” Chanel handbags?

While we offer a Chanel cleaning service our restoration processes are distinct from bag spas. These companies often use a paint heavy technique for redyeing Chanel bags, which give an unnatural looking finish to the leather. We reapply the finish to Chanel bags by hand to get a natural finish and restore the leather to its original condition.

How do I dye my Chanel bag?

We strongly suggest using our professional bag restoration service to redye your Chanel bag. We find many of our clients who attempt DIY work to their Chanel often overcoat the leather with paint or use a dye not suited to the type of leather. The results in a cheap or tacky looking Chanel bag most often characterised by “plasticy” feel to the leather.

Can you repair or restore scratches on lambskin Chanel bags?

Yes we offer a service for restoring or repairing scratches on lambskin Chanel bags. This typically involves either refilling the scratched area and using a combination of refinishing dyes to compeltely restore the condition of the leather.

How much does it cost to repair or restore your Chanel bag?

Depending on your Chanel bag, condition of your bag and complexity of the work required prices may vary significantly. Generally minor repairs such as stitching, handle and strap repairs will be less while restorative work such as refinishing, recolouring and dyeing will be more expensive. Feel free to send a few photos of your Chanel bag to our team for an estimate.
