We have looked long on hard for our leather repair products, we only use the best leather repair products and treatments enabling us to undertake long and lasting leather tear repairs.

Step 1

We start by deep cleaning the leather using a mild leather cleaner using a Tampico brush to reach in to those hard to reach places, by using the brush you can pull all the dirt which are in the pours of the leather.

Step 2 

Clean the area to be repaired with a leather prep to remove the top coat which will allow the new leather dye to penetrate the leather.

Step 3

Apply a sub patch material to the under side of the tear being sure to make sure you have a inch of spare sub patch material around the whole of the tear.

Step 4

Apply a even coat of leather glue to the underside of the tear pulling the tear together, using a hair dryer to cure the glue.

Step 5

Apply a small amount of leather filler to the remainder of the area to fill any voids caused by the tear, this is also cured buy using a hair dryer.

Step 6

Apply a coat of leather dye by hand using a cloth, this allows the dye to reach in to the grain, this gives a good bond for the next coat to adhere to.

Step 7

Top coat is evenly applied using a airbrush which is feathered out giving a nice and uniformed finish.

Step 8

Replenish the sealant, a new series of top coat sealants are applied to match the existing finish.

Now the repairs have been completed we advise to leave the finish for 72 hours for the repairs to fully cure.  The leather now colour restored is ready to use.

Leather maintenance is key, you require a good leather cleaner and leather protection cream to keep your leather in great condition.
