Customer service from beginning to end was nothing short of first class and the postage of the handbag was easy and secure. The outcome exceeded my expectations. I wouldn’t hesitate to use SoleHeeled again.

Bag Repair Services
We perform all sorts of bag repair and restoration services. If the service you're looking for isn't listed below, you'll be able to request a free 'repair diagnosis' during the order process.
We replace damaged hardware (including buckles, clasps, clips, rings, locks and other bag closures), and repair the damage where we can't source sufficiently similar replacements.
Clean / restoration
The leather surfaces of bags are easily scuffed, cracked or otherwise damaged. We polish out these scuffs and clean the bags, removing dirt and even stains with the finest quality polishes and conditioners.
We repair damaged stitching on bags with matching string, removing existing string and restitching lines entirely if need be.
The inner lining fabric often tears or shows significant wear over time. We patch these tears using custom-cut patches. Generally speaking, we can repair but cannot replace the inner lining.
Straps / handles
We repair damaged straps or replace them entirely with the same or very similar materials, including any velcro on their underside.
Waterproofing / stain protection
Waterproofing and colour-protecting your bag will help to keep it looking and feeling fresh over time and in, or in spite of, all types of weather.
Zipper damage doesn't spell the end of a great bag. We can repair the original zipper or replace it with a new one if need be.
These are metallic rings around holes in leather/fabric, typically used to thread laces. We replace them where damaged and can even add new ones where necessary.
Tears often appear on bag surfaces, usually close to seams. We repair this surface damage with leather patching (applying a leather path to the bag's interior to reinforce the bag around the tear) and invisible stitching.
Bag manufacturers use piping to reinforce the structure of a bag at its weakest points, such that continued use of a bag with damaged piping can make things worse. We repair or replace worn and torn leather or fabric piping.
Recolouring / re-dyeing
We can recolour or re-dye bags to address any discolouration or surface damage, or to simply get your bag looking fresh again.
Types of bags
We repair all types of bags. You'll be asked to choose one of the following during the order process. Don't see your type? Let us know

QUALITY WORKMANSHIP SINCE 1955
A 3rd generation family business keeping alive an age-old craft
I had a great experience using this service after damaging my handbag. It was very convenient to mail it to them and I had it returned in perfect condition with no sign of the previous damage. I’m so happy to have found this company!
I almost threw my Chanel bag away, so I am very glad that SoleHeeled could make it as new again. Feels like I won a jackpot! Thanks
The whole process of sending off my Goyard bag was so easy and I was delighted to receive it back fresh and clean. Thank you, I highly recommend SoleHeeled.
I just had my Mansur Gavriel bag repaired. I was pretty sure it couldn't be repaired, but they said they'd be able to fix it and they did. It looks great! Loved the shipping both ways ... The whole experience was just so refreshing.
Sending my Furla bag was easy, and their turnaround was only a week. The work was very delicately done and almost invisible. It’s great to know there is a trusted place to send my favourite bags and shoes for a new lease on life.
The repair to my handbag is completely seamless and you would never know the stitching and base had come undone. It was so convenient being able to use the door to door mail service. I am a very happy customer
Extremely happy with the outcome of my Yves Saint Laurent bag restoration. SoleHeeled did an amazing job at making it look brand new again. They have great communication and always keep you up to date. Thank you so much!
Wow, what an amazing experience! SoleHeeled are lifesavers and brought back to life my all time favourite wristlet by replacing it with an even better quality zipper.
How amazing is this! All you need do is send your bags away in a post box and they come back better than new! All for a reasonable price!! I couldn't be happier with the service and quality of work.
