I have a Coach ski flap bag that has black rabbit fur around the flap. It's worn down from use and I'd like to get it replaced or repaired. I called my neighborhood coach store and they said they only replace hardware, but doesn't do anything else, including issue with the fur. The Coach rep suggested I go to a trusted handbag repair place or something to get that done.

I live in Los Angeles; anyone know of a place where you take your coach to get fixed?

And do you think I should get a black rabbit fur pelt as a replacement in case I find a place to get this done? Reason being I doubt places would have rabbit fur lying around.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Check fabric stores. Often time they sell rabbit fur pelts.

Another source would be a thrift store - finding another piece of clothing with some fur trim that could be removed. Might even find a mink collar - I see them there all the time.

SAY NO TO FUR!!!!!!

ok now that that is out........maybe a nice faux fur can be used?

:rolleyes:
ummm...the thinking behind the "SAY NO TO FUR" campaign wouldn't approve of leather either (ie leather or leather trimmed purses , leather shoes etc)
