Hi everyone.

A few years ago I bought 2 handbags in China. No brand but I loved them so much.
These days they are falling apart, cant find them on the internet (there is no brand) and I just want another one the same.
I have been looking for a sewing place to replicate it but most sewing places would only do clothes and none I have rung actually have the handbag's metal bits (that connect the straps etc).

Any idea how to find someone who would do it? I live in Perth.

Why don't you look on ETSY?
See if there is someone making handbags vaguely similar and contact them?

Then you could send them one of your disintegrating ones and they can deconstruct it and make you an identical one.

Same goes if you wander through a local market and find a bag crafting type person...
