Is the question of giving your expensive leather jacket to laundry giving you nightmares? Have you had a horrible past experience with your favourite leather skirt going in the laundry looking like one thing and coming out looking like something else entirely. Well, we all leather lovers have been caught in the above two situations at some point of times in our lives. To all these people, I have one answer and that is The Leather Laundry.

Founded with a mission of fulfilling the huge dearth of professional leather care facilities in India, this New Delhi based startup is slowly becoming a hot favourite among all leather owners. Leather is an expensive investment that many of us make for the love of the material. Therefore, it physically hurts and sadness us if anything ever happens to this expensive investment of ours. Mallika Sharma, a leather lover herself, understood the grave situation of all leather lovers in the country and came up with the idea for The Leather Laundry, a Laundry especially conceived for authentic & expensive Leather items.

Leather is an expensive item and needs professional care. Instead of discarding it or trying home remedies without proper guidance, its best to avail the services of professional leather cleaners such as this new startup.

The Leather Laundry (TLL) is a second-generation initiative using environment friendly practices, equipment and processes to ensure the highest quality cleaning for your leather be it leather jackets, boots, shoes, bags or even belts TLL can repair, clean, color, revive and replenish them all. Though they don't have anything unique in terms of services they provide to their customers when compared to their contemporaries but they make up for everything in terms of quality of the services they provide. They guarantee fast, courteous and knowledgeable service, value for money and 100% customer satisfaction. The ulimate tranformation of leather items after being revived at TLL can be seen here.

However, one unique thing about TLL is they upcycle leather scrap/waste to craft small leather goods which avoids the scrap from ending up in landfills. Thus, the startup wittingly helps in providing gainful employment, save water, mitigate wastefulness, reduce pollution and above all gratify consumers with its stellar products.

The fully self funded startup has currently partnered with 3 brands, The leather boutique from Bangalore, AQ from New Delhi and Theo and Ash from Chennai, who will promote the Leather Laundry in their respective cities and re-direct all their Laundry requirements to them.

Founder of TLL, Mallika Sharma is a certified professional leather care technician who has trained with the globally reputed leather care company, LTT in the UK. LTT is one of the most coveted leather care brands in the world today. She learnt everything, from adopting the best practices to clean and care for all types of leather to colour mixing, repairing and leather restoration and recolouring. She did her under-graduation from Delhi University followed by an Msc in Finance and Investment from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. She currently chair the garments division of her family run export house that has been manufacturing and exporting leather garments for the last 25 years.

Mallika has huge future plans in store for her startup. She intends to tie up with more and more leather brands across India by the end of this year, extend TLL's services to countries like Dubai and China and open up a brick and mortar shop for the startup's services.
