Handbag Repair Services
We perform all sorts of handbag 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 lost or damaged hardware (including rivets, press studs, metal trimmings, buckles, clasps, clips, rings, locks and other handbag closures) with hardware of matching quality and at least similar appearance. We also repair and restore damaged hardware.
Surface clean / restoration
The leather surfaces of handbags are easily scuffed, stained or otherwise damaged. We polish out these scuffs and clean the handbags, removing dirt and even stains with the finest quality polishes, chemical agents and conditioners. We also use a range of professional methods to restore suede, exotic and other leathers.
We repair loose seams and replace damaged stitching on handbags using both machine and hand stitching, and have access to a wide selection of threads to allow for the thickness- and colour-matching of existing string.
The inner lining leather or fabric often tears or shows significant wear over time. We repair damaged lining using custom-cut patches. Generally speaking, we can repair but cannot replace the inner lining.
Straps / handles
We repair damaged leather or material straps and handles (including by re-waxing worn edgings) or replace them with new straps of matching quality and at least similar appearance.
Waterproofing / stain protection
We professionally apply several coats of high-grade waterproof and colour protection formula to protect leather from water marks, stains, grime and discolouration. We use natural, silicon-free waterproofing / colour protection agents to preserve the leather's colour and complexion.
Zipper damage doesn't spell the end of a great handbag. We often repair or replace runners to get original zippers working again. We also replace damaged zippers with new zippers of matching quality and at least similar appearance.
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 handbag surfaces, usually close to seams. We repair tears with leather patching (usually by applying a piece of sturdy leather to the handbag's unexposed interior) and invisible stitching, which together serve to reinforce the leather and prevent further tearing.
Handbag manufacturers use piping to reinforce the structure of a handbag at its weakest points, such that continued use of a handbag with damaged piping can make things worse. We repair or replace worn and torn leather or fabric piping.
Recolouring / re-dyeing
We recolour or re-dye handbags to address discolouration or surface damage, or to simply get handbags looking fresh again with their original colours or entirely new colours. Where necessary, we strip colours with special chemicals and match original colours by combining chemicals and additives to adjust for gloss, tone and the type of leather.
