Elite Textile Care provides eco-friendly wet cleaning, expert tailoring and the opportunity to sell clothing.
Go behind the scenes at Elite Textile Care and you’re struck by the Tardis-like nature of the premises. Behind the counter there’s a huge room – and that’s exactly what prompted owners, Ravinder and Menon, to expand their dry cleaning operation to include bespoke tailoring, alterations and even a retail area in which the public can sell their pre-used clothes.
The second string to Elite Textile Care’s bow is a comprehensive repair, restoration and alteration service for garments, sofa covers, rugs, shoes, boots and handbags. ‘We can handle most things in-house – shortening trousers, tapering jackets, taking in a suit, altering the shape of a gown, wool and cashmere darning,’ explains Ravinder. ‘And when we have suede and leather items, which seem popular just now, we liaise with a local company with the necessary specialist machinery.’
