Yes, But, Can We Repair It?

We’ve done a ton of different repair jobs, and every one is a little different depending on how the item was made. Here are some examples of things we commonly do:

  • Zippers, baby!
  • Alterations to sleeve length, body size, and armpit curve
  • Hemming and pants take-ins!
  • Replace rivets, snaps, buckles, hardware
  • Add extra hardware, holes, pockets, ect 
  • Almost invisibly patch holes or rips in leather
  • Minor to major leather tailoring (sleeves, leg taper, body rebuild)
  • Liner replacements
  • Redyes – either a ‘black’ treatment or major color change

Restoration Work, Bootblacking, & Redyes

Have an old leather item that’s experiencing dryness, discoloration, salt, mold, or simple wear and tear? We’re experts in restoration work for all leather gear, particularly boots. We work with 100% natural, non-silicone or petroleum-based products and love the process of bringing leather back to life. 

We are the ONLY place that redye garments in Vancouver and guarantee our work on black leather. For color items, things get complicated and while we do it, we’ve got to talk you through the process!

In-Chair Bootblacking:

If you’d like to sit for Ariss to black your leathers, then you’ll most likely have to e-mail make an appointment so we can clear the bootblacking stage! Otherwise, keep an eye out for our public bootblacking days, and for the team of Vancouver bootblacks you can often find at VML socials, MVK play parties, or anywhere close to leather.
