    If it's leather strap, I think you can get it done at some shoe repair store. I remember seeing the store did some handbags' leather straps alteration. HTHs.

      Shortening of strap for sling bags

      Hi ladies, i've just gotten a sling bag but the strap is a wee bit too long for my short frame and unfortunately, it is also the non-adjustable kind where it is just one length of strap over. Hence, does anyone know of any service that actually shortens the length of such straps?

      I remember hearing a SA mention something about recommending someone who does shorten the straps but i can't remember where the SA is from or who the SA if referring to. Anyone knows?

                ya.. 'shukey' at far east plaza is quite gd. my bag strap is fastened by the type of buttons like jeans' button. it just fell off. the guy fixed it for me at no cost. LOL.
                probably coz my bf also did 2 jeans' buttons at te same time.
                nice guys.

                    Help! My handle broke...

                    Hi ladies, not too sure if you encounter the same problem as I do.

                    I often find that my bag straps / handles give way after a while. Like recently, I got a bag from FEP which I loved alot. And its not cheap for a bag from FEP (cost almost 80 bucks) but after a few carries, with some heavy stuffs, there are cracks on the sides of the handles. Seems like the handles are giving way and I cannot bear to throw my bag away cuz its my favourite by far.

                    Any remedies, or is there any shop where I can buy/mend the bag handles? Mine are interchange-able...
