We specialize in the technical repair and restoration of high quality leather goods, including vintage and designer items. Authentic leather goods of any variety are always welcome to visit us at The Spa.
Due to the variant nature of handbag repair, we are unable to offer pre-listed pricing. Listed below are the services we currently offer for leather goods + luggage repair. Please contact us with details about your item to receive a quote and further information about booking into The Spa. We look forward to helping your restore and revive your loved and preloved pieces.
It's called a spa because your items return to you refreshed and renewed; ready to take on another day. We gently clean and carefully condition every piece that comes through the spa, regardless of what other work is being done. When possible, local and natural care products are used but each item is different. We can also set you up with a care package suited to the needs of your item or collection.
The most common interior issues are staining, tears and odour, particularly if you puchase from the secondary market. We can work with you and your budget to decide the best option for your bag, whether a cleaning, custom insert or full lining replacement.
Beautiful bags are meant to be carried and used. Common exterior issues are scuffs, scratches, stains, denim transfer and general dryness. Wear on corners and edges is the most common. Raw veg tan or vachetta leather trim is notorious for staining and conditioning issues. We use conditioners, cleansers, dyes and pigments to fully renew the appearance of your item.
We can also change the colour of your piece if you're looking to refresh the look of an outdated or worn piece.
STRAPS + HANDLES
The most utilized components of any bag are the straps and handles. Depending on the issue, these can be repaired or replaced. You can choose either to match the original or switch up the look and create contrast or a more modern look, especially for vintage pieces. Depending on the piece, there may be options to modify your item to work better for you: strap shortening, crossbody, wristlets, removable hardware, etc.
Looking to totally revamp your item or design a fully custom piece? We've been designing, patterning and sewing for over a decade. We have access to both authentic and complimentary materials: coated canvas, vachetta, saffiano, caviar, epi, etc. We have an assortment of authentic salvaged hardware as well as high quality solid brass + plated items that blend in flawlessly. Let's chat about turning your vision into a beautiful new piece that stands the test of time.
