Yamazawa Studio is a bag repair service that has been operating for 40 years. We specialize in the repair of suitcases and leather bags but we also handle repairs to bags of all kinds, and of all shapes and sizes, as well as wallets and instrument cases.

Our repair service is comprehensive and covers broken handles, dents, cracked leather, discolorations, broken or collapsed castor wheels, malfunctioning locks, torn interior linings and a lot more. We will endeavour to repair your bag no matter what kind of damage the bag has received. We may even be able to repair a bag that is said to be irreparable. 

Our servicemen are highly skilled and we have developed many original repair techniques during our 40 years of operation. Our large factory handles repair work from all over Japan, and we have over 10,000 different kinds of materials and parts in stock, so we can also confidently handle repairs to bags that have been manufactured overseas. We are able to carry out repairs to a wide variety of materials such as plastic, aluminium, vulcanized fiber, and other synthetic fibers which are often found in suitcases.

We provide free no obligation estimates for repairs and there are 3 ways for you to do this:

  1. Send us an email with a photo of the whole bag, plus 3-5 photos of the damage taken from several angles
  2. Bring the bag directly to our factory
  3. Send us the bag by using Yamato Transport delivery

Once we have the bag in our possession we will then send you a formal quote by email, and if you accept the quote we will start the repair process.

So don’t throw away your favorite bag just because it is damaged or dirty. Get in touch with us today and we’ll do our very best to repair your bag and give it a new lease of life. Email us at repair@yamazawa-kobo.com
