Leather Bag Repair

We repair all styles and brands of leather handbag! 

A large part of our business consists of bag repair. We understand how important detailed craftsmanship is when dealing with fine leather goods; operating for over thirty years in New York City, one of the fashion capitals of the world, has allowed us the privilege of working on many famous brand name bags such as Chloe, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, Balenciaga, Gucci, Prada and Christian Dior.

We carry a large inventory of of leather in different styles and shades and if we do not have the same color we match it to the original of the bag. We carry thread in all the colors of the rainbow. When stitching rips and replacing zippers the proper needle size is most important when restitching in the same holes as before.

We would love the opportunity to bring your favorite bag back to life by refinishing, cleaning, renewing and polishing. Your bag will look as it did on the day you bought it.
