Cristóbal Balenciaga founded his first fashion boutique in the Basque region of Spain in the city of San Sebastian in 1918. Within a short period of time, he opened additional boutiques in Barcelona and Madrid.
Balenciaga was a dressmaker originally known for creating unique, feminine designs that quickly became popular with the Spanish aristocracy. In the 1930’s, he closed his boutiques in Spain and moved his business operations to Paris. The Balenciaga brand is currently owned by the Gucci Group.
The craftsmen at Rago Brothers have decades of experience repairing and restoring Balenciaga purses, shoes, and accessories. Our customers ship their Balenciaga leather handbags and accessories to us for zipper, hardware, and lining repairs. Also, we can re-lace the handles when the original laces wear down or break, as well as reseal the edges on the handles.
Balenciaga® and its related patterns, designs, and logos are owned by The Gucci Group and Kering S.A. and protected by international trademarks, copyrights, and patents.
The use of the words “restore”, “restoring” or “restoration” on this website does not mean we can bring any item back to “brand new” or “original factory condition.”
