If you notice any of the the following issues on your leather items, it's a sign you need to search for a professional leather restoration and leather repair services. Be sure to fix your leather furniture before the sofas and chairs gets worse and the repairs get more expensive!

Discolored and Faded Leather Restoration

Anyone who has ever owned a leather sofa knows that one of the main problems with leather is that it is prone to discoloration. Over time, leather can fade from exposure to sunlight or wind up looking patchy and worn from daily use. However, not all leather surfaces and grades discolor equally, pigmented aniline and semi-aniline leathers are considered protected leathers which are more resistant against color fading and color transfer due to its pigmented and protective surface coating. Pure aniline leathers and those treated with waxes and oils generally do not have a protective top coat and tend to fade faster which requires extra care. Regardless of leather type, professional leather color restoration is your option to restore and match the original color of your leather and extend the life of your beloved leather sectional or leather chair.

Faded Leather Sofa

Dry and Cracked Leather Restoration

One of the main problems with all types of leather is that it will dry out and crack over time, especially if you don't apply leather conditioner. Moisturizing your leather couch on a regular basis helps to keep it supple and prevent surface cracking and premature aging. Excessively dry leather makes leather feel stiff, rough, and thin , which can make the leather susceptible to holes or tear damage. Leather conditioner helps preserve the natural oils and prevents leather from drying out. However, if there are deep cracks along the surface of your leather due to excessive dryness (which causes separation), you'll need a leather restoration expert to bring your leather back to life. Leather restoration is an art, and it takes a skilled leather professional to safely and effectively restore leather to its former glory. But if you have a cracked leather couch, sectional, or chair that you love, it's worth the investment to have your leather items restored.

Cracked Leather Cushion

Scratched Leather Restoration

Unfortunately, some leather is notoriously easy to scratch, and even the most careful owners can end up with a piece of furniture that looks worn and damaged. Light surface scuffs marks can accumulate on aniline leathers finished with a combination of oil and wax, but these marks can be removed once you rub them out. Deep surface scratches often remove the color and tear the grain texture of both unprotected aniline and protected aniline. While leather repair kits can be an alternative for minor marks on a cushion, they are not generally suitable for more serious damage. For extensive abrasions, you will need to search for leather restoration services. We specialize in repairing scratched leather furniture, and have the leather repair skills and experience necessary to restore your furniture to its original condition. In most cases, we will match the color of the leather so that the fix is virtually invisible. If you have a scratched leather seating that is in need of repairing, don't delay.

Scratched Leather Chair

Oil Stained Leather Restoration

Keeping your leather clean can be high maintenance because some leather easily absorbs spills and spotting from everyday use . The level of absorption varies between the different types of leather finishes, some are more resistant than others in keeping the stain on the surface of the leather. Unfinished aniline leathers, such as pure aniline and nubuck, rapidly absorb body oils and moisture into the pores of the leather , which will darken the surface area over time due to its lack of finish protection. Most protected leathers, such as pigmented and semi-aniline, can repel many water spills, because they have pigmented top coats and surface protectants. Body oil on pigmented leather builds up but stays on the surface. Prevent oils from your hands and head from collecting and penetrating your leather by having your upholstery routinely cleaned and waterproofed. Normally this problem is seen in leather seats, headrests, and armrests of a leather couch. Leather repair kits or a leather cleaner are not recommended for this degree of spot removal and natural oil extraction. This leather repair task requires leather restoration services which would prepare the area, extract as much oils as possible, and color match the leather to the original color. So let us help fix your stained upholstery furniture.

Stained Leather Sofa Chair

When it comes to leather restoration, three main types of leathers can be restored:

→ Unprotected, Protected, Nubuck.

Unprotected Aniline Leathers have minimal finishing to protect it from stains and fading. Pure Aniline or naked leathers are dyed through to produce a rich, natural color without added finishing treatments. Wax/Oil Pull Up are lightly treated with transparent waxes and oils to produce a wide range of effects such as distressed, marbled, antique. These types of leathers preserve the grain pattern and natural characteristics of the hide, making them the most expensive and ideal for high-end furniture and clothing.

Protected Aniline Leathers are finished with a durable top layer of pigment to the hide which helps against stains, color loss, pet scratches, heavy use. Pigmented Leathers have a thorough uniform color. Semi-Aniline Leathers have a transparent two-tone color. Corrected Leathers have an extensive superficial treatment to produce a uniform color and grain pattern. All types of protected leathers are easier to maintain, making them versatile choices for high-traffic areas such as leather furniture and car interior applications.

Nubuck Aniline Leathers are hides processed from the outermost layer of the hide. They are characterised by a soft velvety nap feel, which is created by brushing and buffing the hide in the opposite direction to the grain. Nubuck is often used to create fine furniture and high quality jackets, shoes, handbags and other goods. Note this upholsery can be difficult to maintain, as it is prone to staining and scratching due to its porous and absorbant nature. It is important to take extra care when cleaning nubuck leather items.
