Leather, Suede and Sheepskin - It is important to bear in mind that these materials are a natural product and that during the manufacture of these garments the skins are altered to enhance their appearance. In order to reduce the risk of damage, shrinkage and colour loss it is necessary that they receive a delicate specialist clean.
Although MORTONS specialist dry cleaning cannot guarantee that your leather, suede or sheepskin garment will not be slightly altered when cleaned it can substantially reduce the risks
Our Specialist Cleaning Service for those delicate fabrics

Wedding Gowns - Take the best care with the most important dress you will ever wear!
Many women examine their wedding gown after the wedding and seeing no obvious staining they simply pack the dress away in the loft or wardrobe. What they are unaware of is that stains (often not visible on inspection) will, over time, age and discolour the delicate fabrics. Did you know that:-
Food stains can attract insects
Sugar stains created by spills of alcohol and soft drinks may dry clear but if left untreated, will over time turn brown and be extremely difficult and in some cases impossible to remove
Perspiration stains and body oils can oxidise and turn yellow
exposure to light can damage and discolour the material.
The memory of your special day will last your lifetime and so can your gown. It can look as good as it did on your special day with MORTONS wedding dress cleaning service. At MORTONS all gowns are sent for a specialist clean where a detailed examination is carried out to classify stains so they can be treated correctly. The most advanced processes are then used to gently clean and preserve your gown. It is then traditionally pressed by hand with each layer and fold receiving the same careful attention. This is all carried out under the supervision of a trained preserver.
To further prolong the life of your gown MORTONS recommend that you consider having your dress layered in acid free paper and placed in a beautiful presentation box Our presentation boxes are hand made in the UK and are specifically designed to protect and preserve your wedding gown for longer.
Some of our specialist cleaning is carried out off site and is usually turned around within 7 days.
