Our guiding principle is that our crafted products are wherever possible made in England.

The centre of this activity is the Foster & Son workshop, situated right over our retail store in Jermyn Street, and staffed by an enthusiastic dedicated team of shoe and bootmakers who have many years’ experience in leather craftsmanship.

Case Repairs

Our Foster & Son attaché cases, briefcases and other travel goods are renowned for their high quality and long life, as are those made historically by our sister company Barrow & Hepburn.

We have a long established reputation for repairing, renovating and reproducing beautiful old pieces, such as this lovely mature full leather suitcase.

Given the integrity of the old materials and craftsmanship
and the cost of a modern replacement, many customers 
find that their treasured possession has an antique patina
and is well worth restoring.

We still have many of the old brass fittings
and our traditional Jermyn Street leather workshop is busy 
refurbishing old items as well as making new designs,
so we should be delighted to see your case and advise
you on conserving, repairing, restoring and refurbishing
it to the same high standard as when it was originally made,
or alternatively creating an new item to the old design.

If you would like us to assess an item please bring it in to the shop
at 83 Jermyn Street, or send images and measurement to us
by email to: shoemakers@foster.co.uk
