Frequently asked questions about our services:
Q: How long will the process take?
A: "We aim to complete any job in 1-2 weeks. If we do anticipate to run over this time we will notify you and keep you updated."
Q: Can you remove ink from my leather bag?
A: "Most of the time yes! Leathers such as suede and nubuck can sometimes be more tricky, but we can suggest to dye a handbag to a darker colour to disguise ink staining."
Q: Do you clean fabric bags too?
A: "Yes, we have specialist products for cleaning all types of fabric and we get great results too! We can't guarantee full removal of staining but we will always aim to reduce as much as possible. If you are unhappy with a clean, we will clean it again for free!"
Q: Can you clean mould?
A: "Yes, we can get great results from cleaning mould from all types of leather and fabric. Not only do we remove the mould, but we kill the spores to prevent it from returning!"
Q: Do you restore other leather goods such as belts, wallets and shoes?
A: "Yes! We can offer cleaning and restoration services on all small leather goods, including jackets too!"
Q: Can you clean unfinished leather?
A: "Yes, we have a fantastic cleaning system for unfinished leathers, meaning you don't have to resort to dying or colouring over unwanted stains. Our cleaning system will remove stains without the need for leather paints."
Q: Will the restoration work affect the feel of my bag?
A: "Most of the time no. We aim to retain the original look, feel and finish of the leather. When items come in that are really damaged, this can sometimes affect the feel."
Q: Do you accept non designer bags too?
A: "Yes! No matter the make or model of your bag we can help. You cannot put a price on sentimental pieces."
