Swift Birkin After Spa :)

I have not seen a thread like this so I figured it might be helpful to someone debating whether or not to get Swift. I got my 35 Etoupe Swift Birkin bag in 2008, and it has been a workhorse bag ever since.

I am a big fan of Swift. It's like a marshmallow, it's smooshy. It goes through rain without problems. It does not show scratches. It's light.

Swift is not for someone who likes their Birkins structured. Mine cannot stand on its own.

So after 4 years it was time to get her spa'ed. Her corners were dirty and there was a nick in the leather on one side.

You can see the results. Perfect. Even the nick is barely noticeable. Others may have a different experience with Swift, but mine has been very very good.

Wow, she looks gorgeous etoupebirkin.
Swift is my favourite leather for Etoupe, well for most colours.
I have been hoping for a thread like this!

I am glad to see the results of the corners.
The corners on my Swift BJ Kelly (which i have also owned since 2008) are looking a bit worn, and I have been wondering about a spa visit.
Thank you for the pics, and I love your Birkin!

oh this baby looks smooth and waxed, like a polished beauty. i love the smooshiness of swift. Time spent at the spa was worth it for sure.

Thanks Jadeite. I was thrilled when I got her back in such great shape. Claude is a master.

Thank you so much for this! I also love swift but my beloved ciel birkin needs to go to Claude at the end of the summer for a little corner work. Your bag looks incredible!

I think Claude is a miracle worker. I bet your Ciel Birkin is so pretty!!!

Incredible spa power. Wonder that same spa can do to my face and body?

I wish H could do that too!!!:P

LOL.. wouldn't tht be nice!!:smile:

You've got that right!!!

It looks fabulous!!! Love Etoupe with GHW!

Etoupe is fabulous. You need one too!!!

My face and body are smooshy enough already! :P The bag looks great, EB!

Mindi, you always make me laugh!!!!

Raz, send your Kelly to spa. She'll come back gorgeous!!!! One thing I did not do was before pictures. Why don't you take some pictures and then send your baby to spa. When she comes back, post the before and afters.

I'd love to see pictures of other swift bags here too.
