At Jack Georges®, we design our products for longevity. Over the course of time, your leather piece can endure scuffs, scrapes, punctures, and damage from accidents. We can refurbish your item and breathe new life into it for a nominal charge - usually $35 to $100 depending on the item and the work necessary. Costs for exotic leathers may be different.

Depending on your particular item and its needs, refurbishing can take as little as two business days to complete. This includes cleaning, changing the binding or repainting the edges when necessary, replacing broken hardware, restitching where necessary, etc. Each case is unique, so refurbishing will differ accordingly. We would suggest that you email pictures of your bag in its current condition to email@example.com as it will help us determine the type of work that is required and speed up the process.
We do not do any re-dying (coloring) of the leather in the refurbishing process. Scratches and stains can not be removed. In some cases, leather panels or flaps can be changed but it will depend on the item - upon receipt of the case, we will contact you and notify you of this option and the cost involved. Please note that leather changes color with exposure to light and the elements, new leather may not match your older bag perfectly.
Once we receive your item, we will contact you with an estimate before work is done.
