Good Questions: Who Can Repair This Broken Chair?

Dear AT, I have a chair in need of seat repair. The seat was made of leather straps, but they are all cracked and broken. I bought it with the straps busted, hoping to get them replaced, but this had proven more difficult than I thought it would. I've tried a couple of different places in Brooklyn and Manhattan. One guy said he could fix it, kept the chair for weeks, and then returned it to me untouched. Another person I spoke to told me that "they wouldn't even know where to get those straps." Surely someone in all of New York can fix this chair! Anyone have ideas about where I could take it?

Thanks,
Alex
