Friendly family business, I took in my Gucci bag to fix the zip (it was stuck and couldn't move it) and Uncle did a fabulous job! Very grateful to have found this place and will def be coming back if I ever need any fixing on my bags or leather goods. 😊

I had a beautiful designer tote bag that needed replacement straps, I couldn’t bear to part with it so this company repaired it for me. I am SO happy with the repair thank you. The customer service was fantastic and my bag was repaired in less than 5 days

Amazing service from Avy and his team. They are such great people. I am so happy that my favourite leather jacket was revived. My light pink 'All Saints' leather jacket was soiled from the hand gel and the only way to save it is to dye it into another colour. I must say it was the best decision and the jacket looks better than before. I had quite a few compliments recently when I wore it. I would definitely recommend their service and if you want to restore or dye your leather jacket, that's the place to go to. Thank you so much.

I purchased a Woodlands Leather jacket some years ago and really loved the soft supple leather and also the jacket design and comfort. I had a lot of use from wearing it until I caught it on thorns and ripped a few tears. By then it was looking a little sorry in a few places. I contacted Woodlands leather and they said send it to us and we will repair it. Received Jacket back and it now has a new lease of life. They did a really nice job repairing it. Highly recommend their leather Jackets and also their repair service. Thank you Avy
