BoundAries Leather aka the LEATHER DOCTOR is one of the few spots in Vancouver that specializes in leather repairs for your beloved items. It works in two ways:
1. See the Doctor!
DROP-IN: From 11-6 on Wed – Sat, feel free to drop in with your items. Sometimes, simple repairs may be done while you wait. Other things will require a bit of time, and you’ll be able to come back for them later, or in a couple of days. Check our Twitter for our IN/OUT time log or call the store to make sure we’re in: (604) 327 – 7433
APPOINTMENTS: Are not necessary but available via e-mail, Wed – Sat 11-6.
2. When the Doctor’s OUT:
Pick-Up: When Ariss is OUT, ReRides staff can kindly assist the pick-up of PAID ITEMS seven days a week. If unpaid, an item has to be held until Ariss takes payment.
Drop-off: ReRides staff can take in items for repair, including all contact info. Ariss will then call with methods, quotes, and timelines. Pick-up has to be during Ariss’ hours for unpaid items.
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!
- 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
1. Restoration Work & Bootblacking
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.
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.
