The Italian Cobbler
2080 Clague Rd, Westlake, OH 44145
I have taken 3 handbags there now.I have to say when I asked him to redo the uneven stitching
He would only repair the missed stitch.The stitching is not straight on my leather bag weather you have a expensive machine or not.It's the customer that is paying you to have it neat and take your time.I really feel he has more work then he can handle.Working 7 days a week I feel he needs a partner back there to help him.

I love the Italian Cobbler. I took 2 purses to him this summer. One was a Cole Haan that had worn spots on the bottom where the leather color had worn away. They touched up these spots with leather paint that matched the original color perfectly. You would never be able to find the repaired spots that's how well they did the color matching. The other purse was a Coach that had dirty valchetta leather trim. They cleaned up the leather trim as well as the whole purse. It looked like new when I picked it up. I have also taken in a pair of my husband's shoes that needed to be re-soled. Needless to say, they looked like new also when I picked them up. I would highly recommend the Italian Cobbler!

The Italian Cobbler is wonderful. Not only does he do professional work, he?s very accommodating. I live in Virginia and I was visiting my mother in Westlake. My husband?s old, but favorite sandals needed an emergency repair. The first place I went told me it would take a week. On the way back to the hotel, I passed the Italian Cobbler and stopped in. I showed him the sandal and he said, ?no problem, I?ll have them tomorrow afternoon.? He did, that was six months ago and my husband is still wearing the sandals. Two weeks ago, I was visiting again. I have an old photograph album with many family pictures. It has a wooden cover and the pages are secured by two leather ties. One had broken and the pages were falling out. I had attempted to get someone to repair the album here in Virginia, but was unsuccessful. As I was driving down Clague Road, I remembered the Italian Cobbler. I stopped in and asked if he could replace the broken leather tie. Again, no problem. The next day I picked up the album with two new ties. I put the pages in the album and tied them in. Just like new. He had even cut the ends at an angle like the original ties and matched the width and color of the leather. His prices are reasonable and his service is prompt. If I lived in the area, he would definitely get all my shoe, handbag and luggage repair business.
