WE ARE GREEN

Connoisseur Dry Cleaners are constantly looking at new ways to be more environmentally friendly.  We are one of the pioneering few dry cleaners in London to use the revolutionary Green Earth Dry Cleaning Process which uses a silicone cleaner that is not only safe on the environment, but also safe for you and your clothes.  Please CLICK HERE for further information on our Greener Initiatives and cleaning processes.

In order to encourage our customers to use this green, environmentally friendly cleaning process, Connoisseur’s have teamed up with the World Land Trust and committed to donate to this respectable charity organisation. The World Land Trust is a registered charity that has been saving wildlife acre by acre since 1989.  So far with the help of our customers we have purchased and protected over SIXTY FOUR Acres of threatened rainforest. That’s an equivalent of almost THREE MILLION square feet!

Testimonials & Reviews

I was recommended to contact connoisseurs by my dress maker and I’m so happy that I did.
Their wedding dress cleaning and preservation service is brilliant. They have managed to remove all of the stains from the bottom of my dress and without any damage to the crystals.
I opted for their full service which included the professional packing in a luxury personalised box. My dress is now beautifully packed and looks like a big present!
I was really pleased with their service and thrilled with the results.
Thank you so so much.

At my wedding a waitress accidentally dropped a bucket of Bbq sauce ALL OVER the front of my wedding dress. There was no way I thougt the sauce could be removed as it had been ‘marinating’ in the sauce in a bag all night until we could get it to the dry cleaners in the morning. Connoisseur acted with such professionalism from start to finish, ensuring me that my dress was in safe hands. They worked so hard and 3 weeks later my utterly ruined dress was sparkling and looked brand new again. Thank you so much, you saved the day and I cannot recommend you highly enough.

I would highly recommend the shoe cleaning service here (specifically for damaged suede leather), since Trevor (who specialises in cleaning shoes) did an incredible job on my brogues. They are also lovely, efficient and friendly here. Read my story below: A few months ago I bought a brand new, expensive pair of Russell and Bromley leather brogues with a suede strip across them. About a week after the purchase, I was out with friends, when someone dropped a pizza on my foot. The suede was soaked through in oil, grease, cheese and grime and the shoe looked utterly ruined. I frantically made my way into lots of shops, shoe repairers and dry cleaners, however all of them told me nothing could be done. I had a go with some suede foam cleaner myself at home, however this only made the situation worse. My father Jonathan was browsing the web and stumbled across Connoisseur Dry Cleaners, who specialise in repairing damaged suede shoes. He brought the shoes in and a man called Trevor had a look and accepted the challenge, insisting without a doubt that these could be fixed. After much work on the shoe, I returned to find it as good as new. Trevor had done an amazing job and I can’t thank him enough for saving my shoes and cleaning the suede to perfection. He even dyed the suede to match the other shoe since it had been discoloured by the grease. I would highly recommend this dry cleaners, specifically for shoe repairs – Trevor did an incredible job on my shoe and I can’t thank him enough!

Great Service and the best in London Such professionalism; collection of suede; gave me updates about the cleaning and then the end result was perfection A really really great niche service thank you.
Ms Karen Berman, Yell.com
I had a bridesmaid dress altered here last year and the tailor did an excellent job.  The dress was boned so not the easiest to alter, but it looked perfect.  I’ve got another one to do now and I’m bringing it back there even though I’ve moved across the city! Thank you.

“Hi, Just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful job you did on the handbag (tan leather, suffering from a big oil stain), which I collected yesterday. It is of great sentimental value and I really didn’t think there was much that could be done, but you’ve made it as good as new! I’ll definitely be recommending your service.
Thanks again Connoisseur’s”
Miss C Lee
“I recently had cause to bring in a white shirt to Connoisseur’s which was covered in red wine. The shirt was very expensive and Ralph Lauren and belonged to an irate man in a restaurant who was wearing it when I happened to throw my hand in a way that caught the glass to spread its contents over it. He handed it over to me and sat in his jacket for the rest of the evening.
I collected it on Friday and am so happy with the result. It is completely alcohol free,  pristine and I cannot believe it is the same shirt!
Thank you for your man’s heroic effort.
Your company always produces the best clothes care and I am very happy to be a customer.”
