WHAT IS THE EDGE-TINTING SERVICE?
The Edge-Tinting Service makes it possible to restore the edges of a leather article so that they rediscover their shine and color.
Performed by a Cartier sales associate, it includes the following operations:
- the diagnosis;
- the tinting of the edges: the edges of the article are cleaned before a first coat of dye is applied. Once the surface is dry, the edges are rounded out using a heated tool or a mildly abrasive sponge, and are then tinted a second time. Once the dye is dry, the coloring is sometimes toned down using an abrasive sponge.
- the cleaning and removal of light scratches: the leather is massaged with a soft cloth and a cleansing and nourishing lotion so as to smooth out the light scratches and revive its color.
- a technical and aesthetic inspection, carried out in accordance with Cartier quality criteria.
