Great experience with Devon Leather Care. From start, my initial enquiry, to finish, picking up my binocular case, the professional attitude and consideration of my requirements shown to me, was just the ticket! Daniel explained clearly what was required to un stitch and re stitch my elderly binoculars case. Great result and a job well done. Sure it will outlast me! Thanks!

My Fathers military sword was not fit to be seen on parade when I took it into Daniel for repair and renovation.It carried the wear and tear of more than one hundred years of ceremonial use and bad storage.And in just two weeks it was transformed.Broken and worn leather was revived beyond recognition and the metal now shines brighter than I can ever remember it doing so.I am so grateful for the care taken to return it to its former glory, and my Father would be very proud to see it looking so handsome.Thank you Devon Leather Care for such a great job.I could not have asked for a better result.I can highly recommend Daniel and his work to anyone with a leather treasure they want to save.

Communication with Daniel was excellent and I am delighted with my gorgeous as-new handbag which was almost too scruffy to use. I would highly recommend Devon Leather Care.

I had an old leather shooting bag repaired by them, and what a fantastic job. They managed to keep the look authentic, yet did a very neat and long standing job. Thank you so much. Good value too. Great service.

How I Restore & Repair your Leather Items

Often I see a leather item that is just old and tired or simply needs the colour refreshing. You can send an image of the item to be restored to me at where I can make an assessment and contact you to discuss your exact requirements.

Typically, the jobs I do include things like repairing leather straps for bags, worn piping, replacing buckles and rings, touching in leather colours, lost leather handles, leather stitching and general repairs.

The leather type is analysed, Aniline, Pigmented, Nubuck, Top Grain, Split, there are lots of others! The items are cleaned according to type, dye colours assessed, pigment colours mixed, holes filled with leather fillers, primed, coloured, and a finish applied.

  Whatever the leather, give me a call to see if I can help.


Transporting your Leather Items to Me

Royal Mail is my preferred form of transport and is ideal for bags and clothing and smaller Items.  Get a price for a Royal Mail parcel here.

Larger Items:  Larger leather items must be brought to and from the workshop, and by prior arrangement only.

Hand Stitched Leather Repairs

All leather repair is saddle stitched by hand.
