SPRING CLEANING

DEEP CLEANING 

Dirty/Stained leather bags, linings, or handles are disinfected, cleaned, conditioned, and waterproofed for protection.

Our deep cleaning procedure removes marks or stains on the leather with extractive techniques before restoring the surface with cleaning and conditioning agents.
 

*Complete removal of stains is not guaranteed, the efficacy of our cleaning methods depends on the nature of the stains against the material.

MOULD REMOVAL 

Our specialised mould removal treatment involves a deep cleaning of the bag surface using a safe, pH-balanced and leather-friendly solution.

*Do note that mould stain on bags may only be reduced and not completely removed, and the amount of reduction is also dependent on the material and condition of the item.

ODOUR REDUCTION 

 

Anti-Bacterial Cleansing treatment is applied to your bag to remove bacteria and odours. This can be used on all types of leather, fabric, and coated canvas, the perfect service for all handbags and purses.

*Do note that the cleansing process functions to reduce pesky smells only (mildew/mould/odour).

BRUSHING, WEAR AND TEAR

LOOP, HANDLE OR STRAP REPAIR 

Damaged, worn, or broken handles/straps/loops are reinforced and strengthened with a supporting layer of leather, or completely replaced.

The replacement can be recrafted with matching leather or redyed to replicate the original.

EDGE REPAIR / RECOATING


Edges of leather trimming, straps, and handles are commonly coated with a wax finish.

A new wax finish is applied to restore worn edges, lightly sanded for smoothness, and re-waxed with an applicator tool. Wax is relayered until the original wax finish is restored.

METALWORK


For bags that have a metal frame, a frame realignment may be needed if the clasp does not close properly.

We also provide specific Gold Plating services to plate or polish your 18k/24k Gold hardware.

HARDWARE REPAIR / REPLACEMENT

A variety of repairs and fixes include - reattaching hardware, fixing locks, and small pins.

New hardware will be sourced to match the design of the bag e.g. locks, clasps, eyelets, buckles, D-rings, grommets, chains, snaps, small pins, metal feet.

COLOUR RESTORATION / RECOLOURING & DYEING 

Our colour restoration and redyeing service help cover up discolouration, deep stains, scuffing, and scratches.

This service can also change the colour of leather bags. The dye is custom-matched and applied with a fine mist airbrush pigment along with detailed hand-brushing to preserve your original stitching.

FILLER / EDGE COLOUR RESTORATION

 

We patch and fill holes, smoothen deep scratches/abrasions, and cover scuffed corners. Finished with colour touch-up. 

*Do note that this process does not guarantee an exact match to the original, thus there may be a compromise between texture and aesthetics when restoring.

PATCH / REINFORCE

A layer of supporting leather is used to reinforce worn loops, straps, handles, piping, edges, or tears on the bag. 

External patching on areas such as corners or edges may require the leather to be refinished with custom matched dye.

STITCH REPAIRS 

We can re-stitch lining, loose side tabs, straps, panels, gussets, zip track or handles.

RESIZING / RESHAPING

 

Resizing the bag to the ideal dimensions for you. Seams of the bag are opened, and excess leather is removed. 


Reshaping restructures your bags by opening the lining and adding stiffeners from the inside of the bag, between the lining for sturdy yield.

STRAP SHORTENING

Straps are custom altered to achieve an ideal length for you, removing excess cluttered leather.

Pricing varies for different types of straps, e.g. patent leather, CHANEL chain etc. 

stitch-bef-aft.jpg

HANDLE / STRAP REPLACEMENT

If your handles/straps are too weak, we recommend replacement instead of repair.

A new strap or a pair of handles can be recrafted with matching leather and redyed to replicate the original. If you require/desire a new length, just let us know.

HANDLE TUBING REPAIR / REPLACEMENT

Broken tubing in handles can be repaired to fill the hollow void in handles and get them back in working order. If they are at risk of tearing, we may advise replacing the existing handles with entirely new ones.

zip-bef-aft.jpg

ZIP REPAIR / REPLACEMENT


We can fix zipper misalignment when stuck, the teeth not closing (or they keep popping open). If the zip head is broken, our artisans will source a new slider.

If there is a separation from the zip teeth or fabric tear on the zip tape, we will replace the zipper completely.

CREATIVE CUSTOMISING

CUSTOMISATION

 

An alternative way to cleverly disguise flaws that cannot be seamlessly restored otherwise - such as cuts, rips, or burns.

 

Our team repairs the opening first, then covers it up with a custom-designed patch, or adding leather caps/panels.

MODIFICATION 


Send us your ideas - be it to include additional straps, loops, trimmings, adding holes, handcrafting a new bespoke handle, shorter strap, or adding new hardware such as studs. 

You suggest it, we make it.
