Navy Hat

WWII Navy Hat Restoration

My father Lucien O Houle proudly served in the US Navy. His grandchildren have a love for the military and their country that would make any “momma” proud. My daughter recently decided to redecorate her living room and decided on old military replicas for her décor. When she realized that I had her “Pops” military hat she suggested that it would be perfect for her living room. I immediately searched the internet and found Ram Leather, read their comments and decided this was the place to send “my Dad’s” hat. I have to admit I cried the day I sent it off, afraid I would never see it again, I felt like a piece of him was leaving me. Linda went above and beyond in communicating with me every step of the way, she even found a site where I could order an acrylic case for the hat and sent the link to me. The quality of care taken with my treasure (now my daughters), is priceless. As you can see from the pictures my daughter was pleased beyond words with her Pop’s hat. It is now show cased in her home with some old pictures of my Dad in his uniform.

Sentimental Closeup

Sentimental Restoration

There may come a time when it is better to buy new than restore the old. However, when the garment has “history” and sentimental value, we can do amazing things! This coat had seen better days, but the customer found it perfectly met his needs and wanted us to restore it. A leather panel in the sleeve was too worn and damaged to restore, so we put in a new panel. The rest of the coat was cleaned and refinished to like-new condition!

Armani Before

Armani Jacket with Sticker Damage

Hello, my name is…

Stickers and leather just don’t go together! The big problem comes when the sticker is removed and the top layer of the skin is removed along with it. If you end up with a sticker on your leather, don’t try to remove it. Send it to a Professional Leather Cleaner who can safely remove it without damaging the skins.

Risky Ornamentation

Risky ornamentation on garments can take the form of fragile buttons, laces, beads and stones, or unique clasps. According to the Federal Trade Commission, all ornamentation must be able to withstand the recommended cleaning process. However, that is not always the case. In the case of leather garments, the care label may simply state “Clean by a Professional Leather Cleaner”. Therefore, it is important that the company you entrust with your leather garments has the experience to recognize risky ornamentation so damage does not occur.

Some ornamentation such as buttons and some clasps can be removed prior to cleaning in order to avoid damage. In the case of beads, stones, and laces which cannot be removed, the garment may require a specialized cleaning process. When that is not an option, a Professional Leather Cleaner may contact the customer to advise of the risk and obtain a consent before cleaning.

Experience counts!

Saffiano 11 1

Saffiano Leather

Saffiano leather was first introduced in the early 1900’s by Prada. Its defining characteristic is the cross-hatch design which is pressed into the surface and then treated with a wax finish. The wax finish protects the leather from moisture and creates a very durable product that can nicely withstand everyday use. Originally made from calf skin, you can now find the design used in all qualities of leather as well as vinyl.

When the finish wears or is marred by ink or if the lining is in need of cleaning, send it in for our Professional touch!
