This Prada handbag sported a chain strap exuding elegant luxury. Unfortunately, the leather woven through the strap had torn entirely at its weakest point, where it loops through the bag.
When this customer reached out to us for a free diagnosis/quote, we offered to repair the strap by repairing the torn leather.
As you can see, we repaired the torn leather by removing, cleanly stitching and then re-weaving the leather into the chain strap.
This is unfortunately a common problem with chain straps, including those we see on Chanel bags. We recommend getting the leather repaired as soon as you notice it tearing — otherwise, the thread will continue to worsen while the bag continues to be used, eventually forcing you to replace the thread entirely.
