located in beautiful Calgary, Alberta.
Our hope is that through research and education,
more people will see the value in well-made items
and the importance of care + repair as part of our new, circular economy.
The focus of The Grey Spa is functional and elegant restorations
through classic craftsmanship + timeless design.
We restore luxury designer goods,
and any authentic leather item in need of our expertise
