Cleaning and Restoration of Designer Garments & Leather

Ace of Suedes provides specialized cleaning and colour restoration for luxury Garments Footware and Hand Bags crafted from leather, suede, fur and all their synthetic counterparts. Owned and operated by the Rigby family, we have been British Columbia's suede and leather-care specialists since 1965. We use environmentally friendly cleaning methods, like our "Ecosolve" dry cleaning in state-of-the-art Ipura equipment, and water-based leather cleaning.

Many businesses say they can clean leather, but very few of them actually restore colour using dyes. Our unique ability to absolutely renew the look of leather garments and accessories is rarely found elsewhere. Our special hand cleaning process enables us to offer cleaning and colour restoration services on more difficult items, such as purses, shoes, boots, briefcases and other hand held leather goods.

If your favourite pieces have faded or become worn over time, our dying and repair services will restore them to their former glory. With over 45 years of experience we are confident in our ability to properly care for the most luxurious pieces from the world's finest designers.

We are based in Vancouver but are pleased to offer our services to everyone in Canada.  We have a well established group of fellow dry cleaners who act as our agents throughout BC, Alberta and Saskachewan.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to find an agent nearest to you.

About Us

The Rigby family have been BC's suede and leather-care specialists since 1965.

Ace of Suedes has been at its present location in East Vancouver since April, 1973. Prior to that, company founders Ray and Catherine Rigby developed and owned the leather department of a prominent drycleaner in Kerrisdale, Vancouver.

General Manager, Michael Rigby began cleaning leathers in 1965. Production Manager, Ed Rigby joined in 1973. Surinder, our dyer has been with us since 1974, and customer service rep, Karen came on board in 1975.  There is no other leather cleaner in western Canada who can come close to our skill and experience.
