If your beloved suede or leather coat is showing its wear but you are concerned about cleaning it, you have come to the right place! You should be concerned because while leather and suede are similar in origin, they have very different needs when it comes to care and cleaning and they can easily be damaged. That’s why we take extra care to examine your garments and inform you of the best options for making it last and look its best. At Goodfellow Cleaners, we have many years of experience providing suede and leather coat cleaning for Ottawa residents.

During the manufacturing process, each part of your jacket may be from a different piece of the animal hide and the tanning process was varied to create consistency. Look carefully to see if some parts have a different texture, feel, or colour. Suede will often have more variation by design whereas leather should be more uniform. Despite using the best technology available, some slight change in colour may be expected and more variations in the fabric can compound changes. Each situation can be unique and we also have special spray dying and additives that can be used to get the best result possible.

If your jacket has any matching components (hood, pants, etc.), be sure to bring those as well as it best to treat all of them together. Also, if you have special handling instructions that came with the coat, let us know.
