The Grey is a small, independent, female-run atelier

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

The Grey Studio upcycles and reworks salvaged vintage + antique

textiles + leather into practical pieces of your everyday carry.
