Care for your bags and shoes

Thursday, October 28, 2010

ColorWash invited me to their media launch at Mandarin Gallery last Wednesday and I'm so glad that they did cause I learnt quite a bit that day about caring for and how to maintain our precious bags and shoes.

Before that day, I did notice that there were a couple stores offering bag, leather accessories and shoes cleaning services but I didn't bother to know more about it cause my bags are still relatively new and it just didn't cross my mind that I would want to clean my old and tattered Prada wallet (it's archived in my drawer already). Plus I always had the impression that it's going to cost a lot if I want to clean my stuff cause it seems like a more atas (high class) service right? But boy I was so wrong cause it's seriously not that expensive, well for ColorWash.

They offer cleaning and colouring services. If you're thinking "Huh? What is colouring?", you're not alone! I had no idea what that was as well. Colouring resurrects your leather bags/shoes original colour so that it'll look like it's brand new, you can also request for a change of colour if the stain/discolouration is beyond restoration.

Here's a general price guide.
Shoes from $15
Wallets from $20
Bags from $40

Shoes from $50
Wallets from $70
Bags from $100

They have other services like water protection and moisturising as well, do check out their website for more details.

Enough talk, lets check out some photos.
