[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” ]Mallika SharmaLeather Cleaning is no way an easy task. It is more like art restoration, where a technician has to work on several elements like stains, loose thread, dirt lining etc. “Our services are analogous to that of a surgeon’s, both in terms of time expended and expertise involved,” says Mallika Sharma, Founder-The Leather Laundry.[/box]

Startup Journey

What propelled us to take up this venture was an enviable experience of two and half decades in the leather industry. We already have all the technical know-how, expertise and synergies in place! Also a genuine dearth of professional leather care technicians in India, prompted us to jump in and fill the gap by offering to clean, repair and care for leather, we are dissuading people from discarding their leather gear. This reduces wastefulness and conserves the environment (as leather processing entails a lot of water consumption and air pollution). Thus the Leather Laundry is a socially responsible initiative that tacitly reduces the impact of growing consumerism and fast fashion!


Cleaning and Moisturizing: Recommended procedures of leather cleaning are used to remove stains and soil as well as to replenish vital oils and restore color. Stains are removed in the safest possible way to maintain the look, feel and delicate balance of oil in the animal hide. Moisture content and softness is also restored by applying a special topcoat of rehydrating creams.

Coloring and Refinishing: Our color matching experts bring back color and softness that have been lost due to continued use, through the application of refinishing dyes and oils. They also fix non fast colors and restore colors that wear off during the normal cleaning procedure. The experts specialize in changing/improving the texture and tone of leather. From minor touch-up and tone correction to recoloring and complete color restoration, we do it all!

Repairing and Replacement: The trained tailoring workforce helps meet the repair needs of your leather apparel and accessories, thus rendering them usable. We carry a huge array of hardware, lining fabrics and leathers (of all possible qualities and colors) on stock. Our skilled craftsmen use high quality thread to provide excellent stitch work that completely blends in with your product.

Besides, cleaning, coloring & repairing, customized services is also available, such as:

  • Size alternation of garments to get the ideal fit.
  • Modification of color and quality of lining and hardware as per your liking.
