Alan has done an awesome job replacing the zip and renovating the the leather on a seriously vintage, designer tote bag. The bag is already some 60 years old and now has a new lease of life. It could outlive me now! Amazing craftsmanship-can’t thank you enough Alan.

Al is a very good man to know get his number in your phone, I damaged my leathers on a track day and was refused back on the track due to the damage & had another track day scheduled a week after this. Panic stations set in as I didn’t fit into my race leathers due to overindulgence over the winter months so I searched for leather repairs in Lincoln and came across Al. Nothing was to much for him and on a deadline he managed to get my leathers back to me on time and for a very reasonable price. This also prompted me to have al add some adjustments to my race leathers and now they fit perfectly and his quality of work is as good as the companies who made them, I would recommend any one to use him he’s brilliant. Thanks again mate.

Lovely write up on facebook.

Topical article in Performance Bikes this month on poorly fitting Dianese one piece leathers. I took a set to Al Lui based in Lincoln - Lincs Repairs - on Saturday - he specialises in bike leathers and is indeed the Official UK Kushitani go to man for repairs and alterations. I got my Dianese suit back today, all limbs tailored and you would never know to look at them that they had been altered and they fit me perfectly now and very reasonable on price too - his mobile is 07719620830, highly recommended for work on leathers. Top Job, big thumbs up.

Alan, of Lincs Repair, is a genuine master craftsman with leather. Not only that but he's a real nice guy into the bargain. My daughter has an expensive handbag that I foolishly tried to repair for her with disasterous results. I called Lincs Repair and spoke to Alan explaining that I'd ruined a quality handbag and asked if he could suggest anything to do with it. He calmly told me that nothing was irrepairable and, as I live in Lincoln where Lincs Repair is based, suggested that I took it round for him to look at the following day. To cut this story short, Alan worked his magic and my daughter once again has a quality handbag as good as new with absolutely nothing to show that it's been repaired. Top quality and very highly recommended.

Couldn't be happier with the job Alan did for me. He fitted me in at extremely short notice, did a job so good that you wouldn't know a repair had been done, and is clearly a really nice guy who enjoys his job.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to have upholstery repaired

Had been let down badly after buying a replica LV Artsy bag when the handle broke after a short time in use. Tried to find someone to repair it with great difficulty since the handle was specialised. Alan at Lincs Repair said he would take it on. Carried out a very honest assessment once he had the bag and said I didn't need a new handle after all , which would have cost me much more. He could repair it. Am delighted with his work and the handle is now securely in place. Excellent customer service, honest and workmanship is fantastic. Totally recommend Lincs Repair.

Just collected my XK from Al after a restoration of the seats which were tired, grubby, scratched and worn on the edges following 5 years of neglect by the previous owner. I said to Al he is a magician, they look and feel like new. He took the time to make a thorough assessment of the work and explained all the steps and also what I need to do now to keep it fresh. Thoroughly nice guy! I would recommend Lincs Repair to anyone. Glynn Milner

Hi Alan,

Hope this email finds you well.

I received the handle today, you have done a fantastic job, it looks brand new, I am very very happy.

Thank you ever so much

Kind regards

We are so impressed with the work you carried out on our leather sofa and armchair today Alan! You've made a battered, ripped and worn sofa look like new. I would recommend you to anyone for a friendly and value-for-money service with fantastic attention to detail. You worked late on a Friday night with no complaint and didn't rush the job towards the end, the last part of the repair received just as much attention as the first. Top class service!!

"Hi Alan!!

I have tried to post on your FB site, but it won't let me upload more than one picture. This is what I wrote on my 'Status'. Feel free to use it and add pictures if you'd like to.

I had tried several times to mend my hide bag, which I love, but is falling to bits. Then I came across ' Lincs repair' and the last couple of photos show the result. Alan recommended I had the shoulder strap replaced as it was breaking, but it doesn't look like it doesn't go with the bag. I should get another 17 years out of it!! Brilliant; the bag was handstitched, too, and believe me that's hard work!!

Thanks again!

Just a quick note to let you know how thrilled i am with the restoration you did last week. I followed your instructions and we are now stuffed to within an inch of our life and the sofa feels like new and looks like new. In fact I had forgotten how comfortable it was! Added to that, I really enjoyed learning from you.Many thanks and best wishes, hope the work keeps rolling in, I know your customers will be as thrilled as I am! Step".  Everyone happy.

Hi Alan,
Just want to say a huge thank you for the fantastic job you did of cleaning and repairing my leather sofa. It really does look like new and i'm amazed at how you managed to repair the badly cracked footrests- I really thought they would be beyond repair! You made them look as good as new!
I really liked the way you were so professional and kept me informed throughout the whole process. Also the time and care which you took and the products you used were first class. I will certainly be recommending Lincsrepair to all my friends. Thank you again.

"Al, wanted to say a huge thank you for the repair on my bag. It looks amazing! I have battered that thing through tons of airports over the years and was gutted when the strap broke. It's back!

Great communication, great service and our passion for doing things perfectly shows through.

I just wanted to write on here to say a massive thank you to Alan from Lincs repair for saving my life after I accidentally spilt nail varnish remover on my fathers prized leather sofa. It created a palm sized decolourised patch and I thought for sure I was going to get murdered for it. Luckily Alan's amazing skills repaired the damage with no sign of the accident ever happening. So a massive thank you goes out to him and I would recommend him and the company any day!

Thanks to Al at Lincs repair for the fantastic repair he did to the red satchel-it's as good as new!!

I called Lincs Repairs to repair the driver’s seat in my Audi TT.


The service was very prompt and professional and I am very pleased with the result. Leather repair and colour match were excellent and Alan was informative about the options available.

Alan has done a fantastic job at a very competitive price. He is very friendly and works cleanly and quickly and I would recommend his company to all.


Steve, Lincoln.

Alan came yesterday to clean and treat my 2 sofas, he also repaired a small tear, he did an excellent job and its given my sofas a fresh new feel to them, im very pleased with the way he was very professional i felt at ease with him being in my house with my children and i. i would highly recommend him.
Good afternoon Al
Thanks for info, please find feedback below with our heartfelt thanks for a superb job accomplished.
It all started with a patch of leather on the settee headrest that was losing colour. My husband gets all the blame for this part and looked up how to "repair/renovate" this on the internet. The end result looked atrocious neither of us wanting to use that seat and put our heads on the settee headrest. I heard Lincs Repairs advert on the radio, took the details and my husband put the SOS call in.
Al came and looked and attempted to sort the problem out all afternoon, and, not to be beaten, unpicked the leather section and took that portion away with him to continue working on it. He managed to sort out what was causing the discolouration / lack of colour, bought the leather section back spray painted amazingly close to the rest of the two tone settee, he then spent all afternoon sewing the section back on the settee, broke numerous needles and lost his finger pads - but the result - an extremely happy customer with a renovated settee that you do not notice has had anything wrong with it.
Throughout all the time Al spent attempting the repair and actually achieving the end result he was very professional, personable and good humoured. A lot of people would not have kept their equilibrium or would have given up - not Al - a thoroughly professional job at an affordable price, would confidently recommend 100%.
Best regards

repair on leather sofa - JennyHod (15/04/2012)

very professional and polite service, trustworthy and efficient. My seat had sunk on my leather sofa and Al took the whole thing apart and re strung and webbed the underneath and now it doesnt sink when i sit on it. I will definately use lincs repair again for anything that needs repairing.

 Had my old leather bag renovated by Al and now its just like new

Very happy with the service and would highly recommend

 Repaired my driver's seat on my Rover 45 connoisseur after i'd sat on seat with a pencil in my back pocket. Can't see where it was scuffed and punctured now. Thanks for a really good job, and I would certainly recommend you any one who may need your repair service. M Jones.

 Alan has always provided excellent service at good prices. Myself and my teams know that Alan is always at the end of the phone should something happen and Alan will always try his best to get it sorted for me as quickly as possible. Would recommend his service to anyone!

 Thanks for doing my PAT testing, job done quickly and efficiently and with a smile! Thanks Al

Liz Stradling

 My wobbly old dining chair was collected and returned by Alan in perfect order within a week. The service was courteous and efficient and the cost was very reasonable. Will definitely use Lincs Repair again.

RB Lincoln

 the LazyBoy Leather arm chair which had a rip in the leather arm area was very successfully repaired. So much so that it is difficult to see where the repair was completed. The green colouring has been matched perfectly. A professional service to be recommended.

 I have used Alan at Lincs Repair many times on all different types of jobs. He has always risen to the challenge and delivered a first class service. He has an infectious sense of humour and nothing is too much trouble. A truly talented caring professional. I will certainly be using his services again.

JB Lincoln
