Honest Crafters is Singapore's leading leather restoration expert with more than 40 years of collective experience. Founded in 2016, our passionate artisans dedicate their talent to preserving our customers’ beloved leather goods with precision and care.


Our story began when Grace, our founder, left her comfortable interior design job to pursue her passion for leather bags in 2004.


Gracious Aires was a small pushcart retailing bags in Raffles City Shopping Mall. Customers grew, and Grace discovered a demand for specialized repairs. By 2007, we began offering such services for customers' purchased bags, and even their sentimental leather keepsakes.


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

We believe that leather should be treated with a distinct focus on longevity and value. The beauty of leather – is it can be repurposed and restored. With that, Honest Crafters was born, to restore leather with a new lease of life and to preserve owners' sentimental values.

“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! 😍”
