Getting the zip in my really nice purse fixed - how?!

I have a lovely Mulberry (yes I know - don't flame me!) purse which I have had for a number of years. It is absolutely mint still and just the right size. The only (not inconsiderable problem) is that the zip is completely broken and the coins all fall out if the purse tips over in my bag. True to form, it is completely stitched in and looks like a nightmare to try and remove/repair it as I don't see any other way than a completely new zip.

Any ideas anyone?! Anyone know of any online services offering this type of repair?!

The current equivalent purse is £200+ and if there is a way of getting this one repaired then I will pay out a bit of dosh.

Thanks. smile

I would contact mulberry first.

If they cant help then timpsons/ local cobbler

look in the yellow pages for a seamstress (they take up trousers, adjust waistbands etc) a simple zip replacement will be easy for them.

Be careful choosing someone though, as I had a zip put in a skirt and they really botched it. As Geordie suggested, Mulberry might be able to help - might even fix it for you for free if you're lucky.

Most good companies,like Mulberry,have someone that they use for repairs.I would be surprised if they couldn't help,but if not then Selfridges used to do it,so you could give them a call.

Some great tips here, and yes, I will phone Mulberry first I think....
