Good leather repair shop in S.F.?

  1. I've got a Carlos Falchi bag that I love but it has a cut or nick in the leather on the outside bottom of the bag (I don't know how that happened!:sad: ) It also needs a good cleaning. I want to take it to someone really good who knows what their doing. Anyone know of a good leather repair shop in the San francisco/Marin/Bay area?
