Leather Accessories Repairs and Restoration

I am a leather repair specialist in London. I feel privileged and honoured when chosen to work on leather articles and I treat every piece like it is my own.

If I think something can't be done, I will let you know.

My clients have given me positive feedback, some saying the experience is like "The Repair Shop" on TV. 

Booking is easy...

Just contact me and we can discuss what you would like done.
