Did your leather gear, clothing, or accessories get damaged due to the recent flooding/weather? The Montrose Forge has teamed up with 4 local Bootblacks that specialize in cleaning and restoring leather goods to provide this service for free. Simply drop off your pieces and they will be cataloged, treated for mildew/mold, and placed into the care of a Bootblack to be cleaned, conditioned, and restored as best they can. Again, this service is free, but we will be accepting donations to these wonderful Bootblacks for their time and dedication. We are accepting pieces that need care in our Main Store at 711 Fairview Street Mon-Sat from Noon to 7PM.

What kind of pieces can you bring? ANYTHING LEATHER! Jackets, pants, boots, accessories, harnesses, corsets, purses, belts... leather. We hate to see good pieces be thrown out if we can get them restored for you. And remember, Texas Renaissance Festival is right around the corner, so if your Ren Garb was affected, we will work on that, too!

We love our city and our community! Thank you for putting your trust in us during this very trying time.

Houston is a very close community that is committed to one another. Though it may not be the top concern at the moment, The Montrose Forge has approached local Bootblacks (Andrew, Daddy Hawk/Jessy, Jet/Vicarrie, and Elizabeth/Alskarinna) and together, we will be offering leather restoration and cleaning for those impacted by the floods. We will accept financial donations to help offset the costs for supplies, as well as tips to help compensate these wonderful Bootblacks for their dedication and time. Additional donations will be given to the PWA Holiday Charities. We will be announcing a start date for this program as soon as we understand our reopen date at our main store. ... See MoreSee Less
