Who We Are


ODSY workshop is owned and operated by Soojin and Yina, a husband-and-wife team.

Our name, ODSY (pronounced odd-see) comes from the word odyssey, meaning a long journey full of adventures. We believe in simple, timeless designs that can be part of your everyday journey.

Every ODSY product is made by hand, from leather carefully sourced in the USA, and crafted with love. We strive to make the highest quality handmade goods.

ODSY began when Yina was looking for a simple envelope clutch made out of leather. When she couldn’t find one, Soojin decided to make one for her. She was so impressed with the results that they decided to start a leather goods business together.

In 2015, ODSY moved into a small shoe repair shop on Taraval Street in San Francisco. The existing business—Paul’s Shoe Repair—had been in the neighborhood for almost three decades, and we decided to apprentice with Paul to learn about shoe repair and keep the shop going for locals.

So within our little storefront in the Sunset, we create unique handmade goods and we also repair shoes, bags, and more. Come by our workshop to say hello!

Shoe Repair Services


ODSY Workshop and Shoe Repair opened in 2015, when we found a lovely Sunset District storefront known as Paul's Shoe Repair. Paul was the neighborhood’s superstar cobbler looking to retire, and our love for shoes and leather prompted us to apprentice under him and take over the business.

We offer shoe repair services as well as general soft and leather goods repairs (bags, aprons, etc.). We have experience with all kinds of shoes and repairs big and small. Please come see us for help with any of your goods!

We recommend that you bring your shoes/goods to our store for an estimate and description of the repair. We cannot give estimates or consult over the phone because problems may vary. If you’d like a ballpark estimate, or to assess the possibility of repair over email, please send us detailed photos and descriptions of the issue(s). You can also DM us on Instagram (@odsyworkshop) too.

There’s no need to make an appointment to visit our shop—come any time we’re working! 

Our hours are Mon-Fri 10-6, and Sat 10-5.
