It turns out that the nearest Alpkit repairer is a long way from London but the Alpkit folk sent some photos to their various repair gnomes and will let me know if any of them want to tackle a Karrimor waxed cotton saddlebag.
Wheel meet again, don't know where, don't know when...

The old Karrimor has come back from Alpkit Ilkley. Charlotte has done a wonderful job with sympathetic repairs, leather conditioning and reinforcement that should give many more miles of joy.

As others have said, I've tended to take mine into the local shoe repair place for a leather patch.
