Got a stain on your favourite designer item? Bring it to these trusted bag and shoe spas and let them do their magic.
No matter how much we love and take care of our designer handbags and shoes, there’s no denying that there are accidents we can’t avoid sometimes. Whether you’ve spilled food on your bag, accidentally scratched it with your long-manicured nails, gotten your shoes drenched in the rain, or – the scariest one – had innocent little bub get creative with a pen while imagining that your beloved leather bag is a white canvas, these unfortunate events do happen from time to time. Thankfully there are professional bag and shoe spas – yes, your prized possessions do need to have a spa once in a while too! – that will have your designer items cleaned, restored, and repaired easily, making them look as new and glowing as they were when you first bought them.
