4) Champion Cleaners
Champion Cleaners specializes in cleaning, repairing and the restoration of all luxury leather goods. Their Bag & Shoe Spa takes care of your luxury leather belongings. Champion cleaner’s protection service guards against all major dyes including abaya dye, jeans dye, pen dye and others from penetrating the leather. The protection is an invisible and transparent coat – it does not change the look or feel of your goods. Their proprietary leather care products are from the United States and created from natural and organic ingredients that are safe for the most delicate leathers, including unfinished leathers and exotics. So, once the leather is protected, it requires only basic cleaning, rather than full color restoration, which could be a very lengthy and costly process otherwise. Champion cleaner’s leather specialists and experts carefully aim to restore handbags and shoes to give them a ‘SECOND LIFE’.
