The handbag

This Furla Piper Top Handle Tote bag is defined by a stylish silhouette and a convenient shoulder strap that makes it perfect as an everyday fashion accessory. However, the leather loop/tab and ring attaching the shoulder strap to the body of the bag had torn right off — clearly having borne too much of the weight while being carried.

When this customer reached out to us for a free diagnosis / quote, we offered to repair the strap — re-creating a new leather loop and replacing the missing hardware that was once attached to it.

Strap repair

We custom cut a piece of high-quality leather to reconstruct a leather loop matching the missing piece, along with the missing ring to which the shoulder strap was attached to the leather loop. To get everything looking right, we needed to first unstitch the leather panels around the old leather loop, removing the existing loop and replacing it with the newly constructed one before re-stitching the area.
