Saving Saint Jack: How to Restore a Leather Bag

The Saint Jack bag after restoration

This week I've been hard at work restoring a rare Saint Jack of London fine leather handbag. This was an extreme makeover: the bag got a new lining, a new closure, repairs to the leather, and a complete cleaning and polishing, including to the brass hardware. The rarity and quality of this bag made it well worth the time to restore. This beautiful, timeless crossbody bag is now for sale in my shops on Poshmark, eBay, Mercari, and Depop. You can link to all my stores from my website, as well as find a step-by-step tutorial showing the restoration.
