What needs repair?

Wallets, Clutches/Pouches & More

Areas on your belt, wallet, or other SLG that have become unsewn, can be restitched as needed to close any open seams.

We can strip and reapply the edge coating to seal and protect edges on wallets, belts, and other SLGs. When resealing edges on a belt, we often recommend stitching either side to close the open seams before the sealant is applied to the edges.

Snaps, studs, stones, magnetic closures, belt buckles, hooks, chains, and may more! Whether your original parts can be reused, or a similar generic option is necessary, we can perform a wide variety of hardware repairs and replacements.

We can completely replace binding/trim around the perimeter of your wallet.

Clean/Wash

When cleaning/washing, the exterior will be carefully hand-cleaned to remove surface-level dirt. The washing option is best suited for fabrics, suede, and coated canvas. Washing will not remove deep staining, discoloration, ink, or dye transfer.

Condition

After being washed, a leather item that has a natural leather finish can be conditioned to moisturize the leather and maintain the original look.

Refinish/dye leather

Recoloring leather is needed when the original color/finish is worn/faded/stained. Our color specialists custom-mix colors to match your item as closely as possible. The color is then carefully applied by hand in our refinishing studio.

Stitching

When an interior seam is unsewn, we can repair it.

ID Windows

We can replace plastic ID windows.

With constant use, a zipper pull can become weak and break. If made of leather, we can make a custom replacement. If your original pull is metal, we have generic options available.

If the slider is off track, we can realign or replace most sliders.

When the zipper tape is torn, or teeth are missing, we replace the zipper. We select the best match available for zipper tape color and teeth color and size.

Convert pouch/wallet to crossbody/wristlet

We can add tabs with rings to allow the addition of a chain or strap, so your favorite SLG can be worn as a wristlet or crossbody.

Resize a belt

We can shorten belts or add holes to adjust the fit. We can also extend belts depending on the style.

…and many more!

Belts

REPAIR

When buckles break, they may be able to be repaired with custom pins or screws to fit your unique style belt. Also, if a buckle is too loose and falls off the leather, we can reinforce the area so the buckle stays on tight.

REPLACE

When repair is not an option, we can custom make some hardware pieces, such as the tongue on the buckle. We can also order a new buckle for some brands.

RESEAL EDGES

Edges around the sides of the belt can crack or peel and need to be resealed to bond the leather and create a finished edge. We can reapply edge sealant to help prevent future damage to the leather.

LEATHER TORN

Torn leather can be mended, or we can make new leather components for belts, depending on the style.

HOLES

Holes can be added to make the belt smaller or larger. We can also tighten some holes when they are too stretched out, among other solutions for worn holes.

SHORTEN/LENGTHEN

If a belt is too large, we can shorten it to your desired length. Depending on style, we may also be able to lengthen belts.

CUSTOM LEATHER BELTS

Inquire about our custom leather belts, made to your specifications. We can also make reversible leather belts to give you the choice of two colors, or make a belt fit a buckle you’re not ready to let go of quite yet!

CONDITION

After being washed, a belt that has a natural leather finish can be simply conditioned to moisturize the leather and maintain the original look.

REFINISH/DYE LEATHER

Recoloring leather is needed when the original color/finish is worn/faded/stained. Our color specialists custom mix colors to match your belt as closely as possible. The color is then carefully applied by hand in our refinishing studio.
