This Cole Hann handbag had become faded from age and use. Arrow Leathercare did an incredible job restoring this handbag by dying the leather and brought this once dead bag back to life. WOW

Dear Arrow Team,
I just wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the job you did on my leather Remy Lite jacket. I have had that jacket for 10 plus years. It was absolutely my favorite jacket. And it was a mess. It needed a new liner, pockets, cuff replacement, etc. I was ready to throw it out. I actually went and bought a new Remy to replace my old one. In the course of the transaction I became aware of your company by one of the sales staff.
On a lark I called your staff figuring maybe you can make it wearable and I can use it while I paint the house or something (LOL). I am so glad to have found you. My jacket came back looking fantastic. It was an amazing transformation. Bob, thank you for calling me and telling me about some of the things I had missed that needed attention and then getting them fixed. I am so appreciative.
My experience with your company, Arrow Fabricare, was great. My expectations we exceeded. Many thanks to all involved. I am a fan and will be sending more things in the near future. I am also telling all my friends.
You know I can count on one hand the number of letters like this I have written in my life. It is not a very common occurrence for me. So if there was ever a case where a “well done” was deserved this was it. I am so happy!!!!

This story and photographs are from an Arrow customer who was hoping for a miracle
"I need your prayers this week. For what? The weirdest thing you can imagine.
"I took my family heirloom 1920s? full length Bear Skin Coat and Mittens (yes mittens) to Arrow Cleaners today for cleaning and a little preservation. This awesome and unique item hung in my parents attic closet for decades, then about 10 years ago my parents asked us kids if there was anything we wanted in the house. I said, "Yes, the bearskin coat." Everyone simultaneously went, "The what?"
"As the story goes, the bear was shot on my great grandfather's farm in central KS and they made a coat, and mittens, out of it. I was pretty skeptical about that story, but the label inside says "Three Rivers Robe Tannery". According to old ads on the internet, they actually specialized in having people send in hides to be made into robes and coats. Hmmm.
"So Arrow is not sure what will happen to this coat when cleaned, and I know if anyone can clean it they can, but it might be just too dry and get more damaged.
"So pray for my Bear Skin Coat and Mittens to come back glistening and beautiful, and not in bits that I have to make a bearskin pillow out of.
Bob S. - Kansas City
So, my post above was a few weeks ago and we picked up my Bear Skin Coat and Mittens today. Arrow, you are amazing. I would have never thought this coat could actually go from 50 years in my parents attic, to actually luxurious. You are miracle workers and I am sure you spent more time on this than you charged me for.
You have made this family "novelty" truly a family "heirloom.
Thank you so much. Bob S. - Kansas City
Note from Arrow: "Bob you look absolutely marvelous in your newly restored bearskin coat & mittens! Thank you for trusting us with this very precious family heirloom, and thank you for your kind words about Arrow! We are so happy that you were pleased with our work, Warmest regards.
