ColorWash

Ever had a favorite bag, wallet or shoe that you used so much, you refused to let it go even when it’s stained and faded? I know I have.  I’ve hung on to my favorite Prada wallet for years and it sat in my cabinet for a long time because I was afraid that if I bring it to an inexperienced cleaner, they might ruin it. 

I’ve always been hoping we’ll have professional cleaners for luxury brands in Manila. That’s why I was so elated that ColorWash has finally arrived in Manila!

Meet sisters Kate and Jen Osmeña, the wonderful tandem who brought in ColorWash to Manila



 Singapore's international franchise of professional bag and shoe cleaning service has opened at the second level of Serendra, Bonifacio Global City.

With a mission to provide quality shoe and bag care, especially for designer brands, ColorWash Philippines is the third international branch to open outside Singapore.

Looking to fill the growing demand for a professional cleaning service, sisters Jen and Kate Osmeña brought in ColorWash because of their decade-long experience in developing cleaning methods and color restoration technology used to treat prized bags and shoes. Whether natural, leather, synthetic leather, patent leather, suede and nubuck, ColorWash's color touch-up and full coloring services help to refresh the look of old or deteriorated bags and shoes.

Beyond restoration and coloring, ColorWash emphasizes the need for proper hygiene and maintenance through professional cleaning of these everyday accessories -- disinfecting and deodorizing by removing dirt, bacteria, fungus and oil -- to help reduce the toll of daily wear and prolong their lifespan and maintain their appearance.

Each customer will have the opportunity of consulting with Singapore-trained ColorWash professionals to properly assess each item before deciding on the appropriate service. One the most requested treatments is the transparent coating that prevents moisture and stains from immediately seeping in fine leather goods.

Just the kind of service I was looking for!  I brought my favorite (read: overused) wallet to ColorWash and had it professionally cleaned.

The price for the cleaning service depends on the size, condition and material of the item.  For my wallet’s cleaning, it's PHP 1,000.00. 

I’m pretty sure, you have a bag, wallet or shoe that needs to be revived.  For most bags and wallets, jean stains are most common.  Don’t wait until it's badly stained, have it ColorWashed!




ColorWash is located at 2C-17 Level 2, Serendra, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila.  They are open daily from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm.  

For inquiries, call them at (+63 2) 625 2165 or send them an e-mail hello@colorwash.com.ph.  Follow ColorWash Philippines on facebook at facebook.com/ColorWashPH and visit their website www.colorwash.com.ph

Hi Tina. Amazing! How long before you were able to get your wallet back?

Hi! I was able to get my wallet after a week. What really convinced me was, they did a spot test cleaning of my wallet on a small area and showed the results to me. I was really convinced they could do the job. I saw the difference right away!
