Heads Up for this Helmut Lang Ladies Jacket

The garment: A ladies white polyester crepe blazer with black leather trim. The care label states: “Professionally Leather Clean Only” with no corresponding International Code Symbols.

The problem: During proper professional cleaning by any approved leather trim method, as labeled, the black leather dye bleeds, resulting in migration of black dye onto the white fabric.

Who’s responsible? The manufacturer since the black leather trim was not able to withstand any standard professional leather cleaning without bleeding, fading and adverse dye transfer.

What to do: This jacket should be returned to the place of purchase or manufacturer.
