Leather Briefcase repair and restore

Updated: Jul 7, 2023

Here is one of my leather briefcase repair and restore jobs.


This briefcase was (at the time of repair) over 30 years old - and it showed!

The usual wear and tear such as corners coming apart and a broken handle.

This is not unusual for me to see when people bring in their beloved article for repair.

The handle was broken and the edging was torn.


Here you see a new handle made and attached.

The fully restored briefcase, including new edging and handle, recolouring and polishing.

Some of the processes I used are my own, and a lot are probably not used by repairers. The reason for this is that I have developed processes that really work and make an article stand out and look lively again, without losing it's character.
