One start-up causing waves in Islington is the handbag clinic in Camden Passage.

Opened earlier on this year, the shop provides some much needed TLC to old and worn-out handbags, offering a range of services from cleaning to a colour change.

Ben Staerck, managing director of the handbag clinic, said: “We’d been looking for the perfect place to open in Islington for some time, so we’re delighted to have launched here in Camden Passage.”

“Local businesses have been very welcoming and we’re experiencing high demand from people who are enjoying using their designer bags again after we’ve given them a new lease of life.”

In addition to restoration services, the shop also sells vintage and pre-loved designer bags, from Chanel to Louis Vuitton.
