FACIALS, massages, rejuvenation and extractions. Sounds like a regular spa menu any person will indulge in, except these treatments are now also available for your bags.
With branded bags, shoes and wallets costing thousands of dollars, it is no wonder that people are also investing more money in maintaining their precious luxury pieces.
Colorwash, one of the major players in the bag cleaning service industry, sees close to 1,200 bags in its main outlet at China Square each month. Mybagspa, which has two outlets in Far East Plaza and Parco Marina Bay, handles more than 500 bags a month.
Newer on the market but also seeing a big boom in its clientele is Cleanique, a 3-year-old bag cleaning service that sees close to 450 bags a month in its two outlets in OUB centre and Lucky Plaza.
Besides unique services like ink extraction and leather tear repair - a process that helps bond and seal small tears to prevent them from getting worse - they also have a full line of cleansers and moisturisers to pamper your bag, like the 'Luxury Leather Cleanser', 'Luxury Shine Restore' and the 'Luxury Silk Serum'.
