Paoletti’s: Your suede and leather experts.
Leather cleaning is a specialized process designed to preserve the look and feel of the leather or suede garments. Leather’s unique characteristics, such as its ability to breath, visible properties such as vein, tic, and scar marks (beauty marks) require special understanding and knowledge in order to professionally clean. Leather garments and accessories use various dyeing and pigment techniques in order to achieve different appearances and effects. Understanding colors, dyes, pigmentation, garment construction, along with characteristics of different types of leather is what the professional offers. We take pride in understanding the work that we preform. All items that Paoletti’s processes are cleaned, refinished and pressed as part of our cleaning service.
Providing a professional level leather cleaning service is not just about the cleaning. The refinishing or recoloring of a leather garment is the most vital part of producing a high quality piece. Without the color restoration process you are not providing professional leather cleaning. We have decades of experience in restoring colors. We mix colors from scratch to match each garment. We use top coats to reproduce the look and feel that the designer of the garment intended.
Providing professional leather service also requires a repair and alteration staff that understands garment construction. Our crew of seamstresses and tailors are talented. They allow us to offer a wide variety of alterations and repairs. Their abilities strengthens the quality of our service. Their abilities allow us to remove and replace hardware, disassemble and reassemble pieces to clean separately, along fulfilling customer’s requested repairs. We replace zippers, buttons and make new linings, shorten sleeves and more. A full line of service is available.
Once a leather piece is cleaned, refinished and repaired/altered it moves to our pressing department. The final process of professionally cleaned leather garment is the ability to press a garment and make it look its best. We use tension equipment, utility presses, forms, brushes, buffers and more to put the final look on a piece.
