These people are true craftsman who genuinely care about presenting a job well done.
They’ve fixed my leather bouts countless times and I can’t recommend them enough.
Well worth the tube journey from west London.
Thank you!

£20 for soles on red ankle boots that were presented to me with glue on the leather in several places. Removed some of it when I pointed it out but it was clearly a rushed job and it shouldn't have needed me to say anything. V.unimpressed

Very impressed. I had a broken zip on a sofa cushion cover. Perhaps not a typical job for them, but they accepted without fuss and fixed it really well and cheaper than other places I had quotes from

Relatively quick service, with a relatively cheap price - for excellent results!

I took a bag in for repair, the repair has not only reinforced the bag but they gave it a polish and renovation too. It was a quick and fuss free service. The staff are very polite and helpful and they sell a wide range of good quality leather enhancements. I am going back with another Mulberry bag for reinforcement rather than send it back to the manufacurers. Would highly recommend. Well done Rawhide

For the gentleman at Rawhide to do my shoes.
Have been coming for almost 8 years now. They
Can alter and do all kinds of things with my shoes.
I come to them especially to shorten really high heels
And they always manage to pull it off!

With some trepidation I took my Prada Chelsea boots (they were a present!!) in to Rawhide. They did such a good job, more than I expected, that I immediately took in a pair of (very) expensive 20 year old favourite cowboy boots (bought in Dallas, Texas, no less!). Outstanding. They even managed to fix a crack appearing at the ball of the foot that I thought had meant the end of them.

No hesitation in recommending.

Rawhide are an excellent shoe repairers . They fixed a new heavy duty zip in my vintage motorcycle boots no problem, and they are experts in cowboy boots and cuban heels. Nice one Rawhide!

The cobblers that saved my life! My favourite dancing boots were pretty well destroyed, with the soles worn through and the leather giving up the ghost. I'd tried a number of other places, who all said that they were past saving. But this place took them in and worked miracles. I can't speak highly enough of the skill of the cobbler there. My boots have been going strong for years since their intervention.

After reading the glowing reviews here I thought I would give Rawhide a go with a pair of long boots that I wanted to cut down. When I picked them up however the job was done very poorly - I could have cut and sewed them straighter myself with a domestic sewing machine. They first quoted £30 which I negotiated down to £25 but really not worth the price. Unhappy and a waste of money.

Rawhide are awesome. I'm a huge lover of cowboy boots and have many pairs. I've lost count of the number of pairs that have worn through and I've thought were beyond redemption, but every time the nice gentlemen at Rawhide have rescued them and they've come back looking like brand new. With good cowboy boots the whole sole has to be removed and re-stitched back on, so it's no small task. They're masters of their craft when it comes to leather soled shoes and boots. Highly recommended if you need a 'proper' job done and not some lame heel-bar effort.
