Repairing Shoes & Leather Bags in Bodrum

Most of the Turkish people prefer repairing their shoes before tossing them out. With this popularity, it is easy to find a shoe repair shop everywhere in Turkey.

These kind of professions require hand workmanship and experience. It is also important to know that you will get right pricing and on time delivery. That is why we value to have positive feedback from a friend or a trusted source before choosing a service.

I did the same when my shoes need repair. I asked to a Bodrumian if she knows a repair shop which she is satisfied with. She said she is content with the repair service offered by a shop called BLS. I went there and I am glad I did.

BLS is a very small shop, 8 or 9 meter square at most. The owner is Atilla and he is working alone. His workshop is at the town center, in a small alley just across the post office.

He was born and raised in Bodrum. When he was a teenager, he had moved to Istanbul and worked in a handmade shoes maker in 1989. After spending few years and learning shoe making, he had decided to return back to his hometown and set up his own small business.

There is not much to tell about this little shop but one; there is a plaque from Rotary International on the counter. This is not something you expect to see in a shoe repairer so I asked him why he has a plaque from Rotary International. He said that this is an award for successfully using his handcraft skills in shoe repairing. Isn’t it amazing? I was really impressed.

The shop is open all year. Depending on the work load, he may work also on Sundays but this usually happens in summers.

If you have something for repairing, he needs to check it before giving you a price and a delivery time.
