The trunk makers have never ceased to develop their coated fabrics. 

 

Plain, checkered, monogrammed, these canvases  have evolved between 1858 and today. 

 

Despite looking very similar, they no longer have much to do with vestiges of the past. Each generation of canvas is different, the restoration process is specific to each canvas depending on its time.

This article will not reveal the secrets of restoration, but will give a foretaste of the value of calling on the malle2luxe workshops to bring your luggage back to life.

 

Do not attempt to restore a canvas yourself, as this may cause irreversible damage to your trunk. 

CLEANING COATED CANVAS OF OLD TRUNK

 

Depollution & Restoration:

 

During these steps, the grime, pollution and dirt that has settled on the work will be removed, completely eliminated depending on the condition of the canvas and previous restorations.

It is a very delicate operation involving solvents in liquid phase or in gel form which, if poorly chosen, could damage the integrity of the fabric.

 

A preliminary analysis and tests are therefore necessary to determine the appropriate type of product and its possible dilution so as not to attack the pictorial layer.

 

This work is done millimeter after millimeter, it is a work of patience, without damaging  the initials or personalizations

Note:

It is important to never apply a so-called " isolate " product on the canvas.

 

Whether it's varnish , oil , wax , these products will give shine instantly (and again), but in the long run it's an unrecoverable disaster . 

 

These products trap all the grime and dirt , thus preventing a  restoration of the original canvas .

 

Partial or total repainting is also inappropriate!
