Luxury goods special – How to maintain your bags. clutches and more


At the 10th Anniversary celebration of Colorwash and the launch of their High Density Transparent Coating for all your lovely bags… we were treated to a spectacle of having the boss douse bags like your chanel 2.55 and balenciagas with water, ketchup, pen ink which lead us all to “ooohhh and ahhhh and gasp”.

The chanel 2.55 seen here belongs to Ms Gemma Gil who is the managing director of Colorwash. A firm believer for sure of her company and her products, she had put up her pretty lambskin chanel flap handbag to the test. Allowing her brother who is part of the business as well to throw heinz ketchup onto the bag (as we protested!) LOL.

Well as seen on this coated portion of the bag: The ketchup was easily removed just by spritzing water on it. It slide off without a trace :)

At the uncoated section of the bag. Things weren’t looking that great. Check out the red stains on the stitches on a bag that is worth 7 thousand or so.

I had uploaded some photos on instagram that day which lead to some people commenting that they too were really shocked LOL. Thank goodness Colorwash can reverse the many types of damage and rough handling we inflict on our handbags!

Introducing the Colorwash High-Density Transparent Coating.

Priced at $120 no matter the size of your bag. It is well worth the amount of upkeeping your expensive bags isn’t it. The treatment however doesn’t last forever and it is recommended you bring your bag back every 6 months or so depending on how often you use it. The silicon coating wears out just like any other treatment :)

But since we live in Singapore where humidity levels are high, and where we face rain and are bear the brunt of it, this may well be worth the investment. Because we work hard too , we get pen stains on our bags don’t we. Pen ink is typically oil based and you can’t remove these since you can’t rub alcohol or water on your bags as it destroys the leather. Better to leave such things to the professionals.

High-Density Transparent Coating

The first in local leather care industry to incorporate Silicone into transparent coating, High- Density Transparent Coating is twice as effective in protecting bags and other items, from water and minor food stains.

Silicone brings many benefits into the equation. Known for its strong water-repelling and anti- abrasive properties, it creates a durable barrier between bags and stains. Its resistance to oxidation also slows down the perennial concern of color fading of leather. The molecular structure of Silicone also assists breathability for the living leather which prevents the growth of fungi by exhuming trapped heat and moisture through water vapor. Besides Silicone which has moisturizing properties, the coating is fortified with additional minerals to keep leather supple and soft. Further enhanced with cutting-edge molecular technology, the minuscule particles in High- Density Transparent Coating cover even the smallest seams, extending its application beyond leather products to include fabric and suede – a breakthrough in the market.
