Repairing a Broken Leather Purse Strap

I have a Micheal Kors bag and one day all of a sudden, the shoulder strap just tore apart. I really like this bag, is there any way I could fix it? Should I glue it, how? Should I sew it, with what?

It looks like a nice purse so why not consider taking it to a shoe repair shop and ask if they can fix it. Just Google shoe and purse repair and your zip and maybe there will be several to choose from.

those purses are way overpriced and cheaply made. a friend just brought me one of them to fix with my harness machine. it is very cheaply made, not worth it. can buy better elsewhere.

Amazon sells replacement straps in many colors.

I have taken leather goods I care about to a shoe repair shop. They even fixed a rip in my leather coat invisibly.

I love Michael Kors! I never had this happen to any of my purses, but if this is a relatively new bag, you can bring it back to the store since there is a 1 year warranty and they'll repair your bag. If repair cannot be done, you will be issued a similar like bag or replace for free.


You need to have your receipt.

Take it to a shoe repairman, or a leather shop or an Amish harness maker. All would charge under $10 to fis it in my area.
