We clean and restore suedes and leathers in-house rather than shipping them out to a wholesale house as is the case with the vast majority of cleaners. Our in-house suede and leather specialists have experience with such designers as Hermes, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Coach, Fendi, Chanel, Bottega Veneta and Searle, just to name a few. Suedes and leathers are arguably the most complex and challenging items to process. Each garment must be carefully assessed for its specific needs and limitations. The natural beauty of the skins brings with it a lack of homogeneity and a level of unpredictability that does not exist with most fabrics. Our experts strive to return your garment to as close to its original texture and color as is possible. After being gently cleaned, by hand, if necessary, the natural oils depleted during the cleaning process are replenished in finishing. This multi-phase process sets us apart from the “typical” leather cleaning service.If a handbag is looking tired and worn out, allow JEEVES to give it some tender loving care.
