Trusted Melbourne Handbag Repairers

The most convenient way for Melbournians to get their handbags repaired by Australia’s best craftsmen

Quality Workmanship on Melbourne Handbag Repairs Since 1955

I am thrilled with the job you have done on my handbag. You replaced the heavy chained handles with excellent quality leather, leaving just a touch of the gold links, which only improved what is an expensive, designer bag. Thank you for the great service.

SoleHeeled was recommended to me by a friend when I mentioned needing to repair a bag and not having the time to take it to a reputable repairer in the city... The repair was wonderful and super convenient. Happy to leave a review for such a great business.
