Doudaklian Leather Goods & Luggage
About this pro
Since we are able to make a new product, we underestand how the item was made, so it is much easier to find repair solutions. Creativity. since no 2 jobs are not the same, the repair/restore process is different than what the manufacturer had done. I have to come up with a repair design that does not change the integrity of the item.
