Leather repair encompasses the range of services that can be performed to remove small spots and stains, treat scuffs and scratches, repair minor color issues, and address tears and other wounds that are less than 2 inches in length and width. Most of these repair projects can be performed on site over the course of one to three hours.
It is important to note that these remedies are repairs to a skin-like textile. It is very similar to performing cosmetic or plastic surgery on human skin, but with the added benefit that our professionals can add color to the affected areas to reduce the visibility of the repair. Thus, while it is always the goal of our specialists to render a repair invisible, it is possible that some scarring or color differential – particularly the difference between an older color that has been subjected to wear and exposure and a fresh application of “new” color – may be detectable, especially when you know where to look.
Our desire for a perfect repair can also be impacted by:
- The leather type
- Condition of the color system
- The age of the leather
For instance, a repair to a five-year-old semi-aniline leather cushion with a tear of two inches will be much less apparent than a similar repair to a ten-year-old aniline leather, since the dyed color will be less apt to mask the repair than a color system that is a little more opaque. Furthermore, the repair of a clean wound will be less visible than the repair of a jagged wound.
