Honest Crafters - Singapore's leading leather experts with 40+ years of collective experience. Passionate artisans gift their talents to preserve your beloved leather goods and your luxurious way of life.


Our story began when Grace left her comfortable interior design job to pursue her passion for leather bags in 2004. Gracious Aires began as a humble pushcart retailing bags in Raffles City.


As customers grew, so did the demand for Luxury HandBag Repair and Restoration. Hence, Gracious Aires began offering such services for customers' purchased bags, and other sentimental leather keepsakes.


Word of our craftsmanship spread. With in-depth knowledge and understanding of working with various types of leather, we earned trust and credibility in Singapore.

The beauty of leather – is it can be repurposed and restored. Honest Crafters was born because leather should be treated with a distinct focus on longevity and value - and no one does it better than us.

“Couldn't thank the team from Honest Crafters enough for such great work done to refurb this very vintage (1996) classic double flap.

It was passed down from a very dear late friend of mine.. it has great sentimental value. The bag wasn't well maintained over the years at all and had many flaws but, Honest Crafters managed to salvage the bag into a very clean and polished vintage look.

Thank you Honest Crafters! I'll look no further beyond you when I need such services again! 😍”
