Of all the things that we humans call luxury, leather products hold a very important place. Leather and leather products are elegant beyond comparison and at the same time are difficult to take care of. It is this thought that resulted in the setting up of the innovative spa for luxury leather gear- The Leather Spa.
Founded by Mallika Sharma and Neha Sharma in the year 2015, The Leather Laundry is a niche spa service for luxury leather gear. They clean, colour, repair, restore and revive all things leather. They dry clean and repair leather shoes, jackets, handbags, wallets, belts and leather sofas. They have offices pan India and cater to all major metro cities, with headquarters being located in New Delhi.
The idea of coming up with an exclusive laundry service for leather products was casually floated by Mallika’s sister Neha over evening coffee at work and before they realized, it started taking the shape of a full-fledged venture. Armed with post-graduate degrees in Finance and Economics from the UK, the Sharma sisters swear by their venture, constantly striving to innovate and improvise. Besides that, Mallika is also a certified professional leather care technician, who has trained with the globally reputed leather care company, LTT in the UK. It was there that she learnt everything, from adopting the best practices to cleaning and caring for all types of leather to colour mixing, repairing and leather restoration and re-colouring.
Leather being a product of nature, has a specialized cleaning process designed to preserve its look, feel and unique characteristics. With 30 years of unparalleled experience in the leather industry, TLL’s leather chemists and master stitchers offer immaculate cleaning, colour restoration, repair and replacement solutions for luxury leather handbags, shoes, jackets, wallets belts, heels, boots travel bags and leather sofas. They even offer a door pick-up and drop-off service across Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad.
Based out of New Delhi, their parent company (a family enterprise) is one of India’s leading manufacturers and exporters of leather apparel and accessories. Having worked with some of the most coveted brands spanning over several continents, they take pride in claiming that they have the finest technical know-how of leather in the country.They proudly boast of state-of -the-art facilities sprawling over several acres, along with a mammoth workforce and a huge collection of leathers, lining fabrics and trims of numerous qualities, colors and finishes on stock. The Leather Laundry is a second-generation initiative that is resolutely committed towards boosting the existing foundation and exploring newer horizons through focus, innovation and creativity. Their dedicated team of expert technicians aims at using environment friendly practices, equipment and processes to ensure the highest quality cleaning.
TLL is also a socially responsible initiative that tacitly reduces the impact of growing consumerism and fast fashion. By offering to restore, repair & care for leather, they are dissuading people from discarding their leather possessions. This reduces waste & conserves the environment (as leather processing entails a lot of water consumption and air pollution).
Their future plans include expansion of their operations across the country and abroad along with foraying into new product verticals.
