lovin my bags and bag spa experience


store

Good news! Lovin My Bags is now available in Malaysia since April 2012. Some of you might ask what is Lovin My Bags? I learnt about Lovin My Bags through a website selling vintage Chanel bags. Lovin My Bags (LMB) offers handbag care products and handbag cleaning service.

I bought a vintage Chanel bag few months ago and the bag needed some cleaning. There was stain on the back of the bag. At first, I wrote to LMB in US to check if they ship internationally for their products and I was so happy to find out that there would be a store in Malaysia soon. I waited patiently for the store to be opened to send my vintage Chanel bag for cleaning. 

I checked in my bag for a bag spa. Initially I was advised that they would be able to clean about 80% of the stain thus it would not look 100% new. And I agreed with that knowing that the stain has set for probably a long time I purchased it. 

However, Lydia, the principal/director of LMB Malaysia, decided to send the bag to US for further cleaning after the Malaysian crew has cleaned the bag. According to Lydia, she was not happy with the outcome of the first round of cleaning. After about three months, I was informed that my bag was ready for collection. And I can not wait to see the outcome....

I am so thrilled to see my cleaned bag. Well, wouldn't you? The bag looks brand new. A big thank you to Lydia and her team for going the extra mile for my bag. Much appreciated.

In order to take care of vintage Chanel bag, I was advised to purchase Most Delicate range as this range is designated for delicate leather such as lambskin. As for Antibacterial Cleaner, it is an additional product and it was a gift.

    3. I guess, I was lucky :)

      A tip from them is never, never use baby oil or baby wipes to clean leather bags. Check out their website for more caring tips.

      The promotion is no longer available. No discount for the canvas bag.

  3. Hi gals

    I am a regular customer at Lovinmybags, Bangsar KL. I have sent about a dozen bags there for spa and restoration. Also bought few specific spa products to DIY my bags at home.

    Like Kaelyn, I had a similar bag with some stubborn stains. Lydia and her gals were marvellous! They walked several extra miles, including sending the bag to US to get it fixed. Cost me a little extra but worth the investment and wait.

    Hey, you gals should also check out their exclusive range of exotic and designer leather bags. Very elegant and exquisite!

    1. Hi Carolyn,

      Thanks for checking out this post. Sorry for the late reply and to be honest, I can't remember how much it was. Not over RM300, I guess. Suggest to contact LMB. Sorry if this does not help much.

      Cheers.
