The Bag Spa
Restoration of luxury leather goods requires special expertise, and The Bag Spa offers just that. It works with top industry technicians to match their impeccable skills to the latest state-of-the-art technology. The perfect choice for luxury repairs.
The Seam’s ethos is to focus and care for what we already own rather than consuming more. To that end, it connects you with a local studio or person who provides live updates during the repair journey. It also works with big businesses to offer exceptional garment care and repair services at scale.
From as little as £6.50, Clothes Doctor will carry out any repairs and alterations to your clothes remotely. Simply send pieces in a jiffy bag and usually around a week later, they’ll send them back exactly as you’d expect. If you’re interested in learning how to do your own repairs, the site also offers sewing starter kits with plenty of video tutorials to walk you through the process.
Ever wanted to reinvent something in your wardrobe? Design Blender will do just that – offering a bespoke service that allows clients to bring in an existing piece, the site’s clever seamstresses will work to turn it into something more modern, breathing life into older clothes that might otherwise end up thrown away. There’s also a selection of pre-loved and repurposed pieces available to buy on site, offering a more unique and sustainable way to shop.
