When asked about the amount of leather items they’ve rescued, the Archers can't put an exact figure on it.

All because someone bothered to source options like the Leather Doctor. Many customers are now saying that a mobile service of this kind is long overdue. For Brett and Angela, this is one of the more satisfying aspects of the job.
