Leather, Suede & Fur
Leather & Suede Cleaning
Because the dyes used in certain leather and suede garments can be unstable, extremely specialized cleaning care is required. Madame Paulette’s innovative and pioneered processes for cleaning leather and suede will ensure the very best results. Each skin or hide has its own individual characteristics – much like the fingerprints on a human hand. Tanning and color applications can obscure many of the potential flaws, such as bruises, shaded areas, wrinkles, vein marks, etc. Also, because of the porous nature of leather and suede, they are extremely susceptible to staining. Therefore, Madame Paulette offers additional cleaning processes, including specialized spotting techniques, state-of-the-art equipment, and highly skilled professionals that are necessary to maintain the “brand new” look of your leather and suede garments. These specialized techniques and processes can be performed not only on your apparel but also on any of your fine leather and suede home furnishings.
Items made of leather and suede are luxurious and should be handled accordingly. Replacement is very costly so extreme care by both the consumer and the cleaner should be exercised to insure the longevity of the life of the garment.
Fur Cleaning & Storage
Standard use of a fur or fur-lined pieces exposes them to the elements – the dust, dirt and salt from a major winter storm or the natural heat and humidity emitted from the human body. The skins can become dried and in extreme cases, even crack, leading to the need for highly specialized fur cleaning and restoration.
It is vitally important to both clean and condition your furs on a regular basis. Madame Paulette’s team of skilled experts will first meticulously inspect and remove all stains from both the skins and linings of your garments. We then implement our pioneered, innovative fur cleaning processes followed by our specialized glazing technique to return essential oils and luster to your valued furs.
In addition, Madame Paulette can repair or replace any damaged skins or even transform your old fur into a modern new style through the skill of our fine European tailoring team.
Consistent with our dedication to total customer satisfaction, Madame Paulette can provide seasonal fur storage in a highly secure, climate controlled vault.
