Laba Laba

Laba-Laba has long been known as a one-stop shop for leather repairs, which include shoes, bags, belts, luggage, briefcases, watch straps, sofa*, etc. Laba-Laba was found by Jap A Ten in 1898. Back then, it was called "De Spin", which means spider in Dutch. The name "De Spin" was chosen for the resemblance of the quality of our services to the nature of a spider's web. By way of strength comparison, a spider web is actually five times stronger than steel and twice as strong as artificial fiber.
