Customers come into the shop everyday with rips and tears on their leather jackets, handbags and furniture.
There are two ways of fixing a tear on your leather. (1) Bonding the tear or (2) Replacing the damaged leather.
This is where we add a backing piece of leather under the tear and glue it into place, thus reinforcing it and stopping it from tearing further.
Replacing damaged leather:
This is where we remove the damaged panels and replace them with new leather. Much more complicated and more costly. In some cases, if the tear is too large, we need to replace the section to get an effective result.
