Avalon Fine Leather Services specializes in the care, repair, and restoration of luxury-grade leathers in fashion, furniture, leather and hair-hide rugs and interior installations both residential and commercial. It evolved organically over several years as owner/artisan Cynthia Clark...while running Avalon Couture & Textile...noticed how the best leather shops in New York City serviced designer shoes and/or handbags...but few handled the thin, buttery soft lamb or calf leather garments so prevalent in today's fashion and design arenas. When they did... it was limited to minor issues. The development and current trend of woven leather and intricate hair-hide rugs/furnishings also demanded special capabilities to retain their integrity and value.
While Ms. Clark had done work previously for Fendi boutiques and the occasional client's leather chair or jacket...it became clear there was a void. Where would someone turn when their white designer jacket collides with a glass of cabernet? Fido makes a statement on that bespoke Italian sofa or chews a coat sleeve? Or a young child scribbles on a custom suede cushion...with multiple writing instruments? So, After further studies in Europe... Fine Leather Services was launched.
