Repairing the damage
This is the first step in making a repair and is easier than you think!
- Determine the size of the damage
- Prepare the area by cleaning the surface and trimming away any rough leather
- Put the sub-patch behind the leather
- Glue the sub-patch securely into place
- Use the Heavy Filler to fill any gaps/holes in the leather
- Apply the Heavy Filler in a few thin layers to make it smooth with the surface
Matching the color
Select the color that best matches your leather when you place your order. This will give you a kit with a pre-matched color that will be a close color to your leather. You can then mix in the tints that come in each kit to make it match perfectly.
- Dark Brown
- Grey (light to dark)
- Medium Brown (including Light Brown)
- Blue (light to dark)
- Green (light to dark)
- Red (light to dark)
Simply select the color that best matches your leather. You can then match all shades of this color with the kit from light to dark.
For example, the cream kit can be tinted to match every shade of cream and the kit will also come with tints to match different types of cream – you can add a little red to make the cream more rose/pink. Yellow will make it a brighter more yellowy cream and white will make it pale. Add black to darken it or turn it into beige.
Each kit comes with the right tints to match a huge spectrum of similar colors!
Detailed (Step by Step) Instructions
The leather on this MR2 was very badly worn on the side, a large hole had developed and the leather was very badly scuffed. The damage was repaired using the Leather Repair Kit and then re-colored using the Leather Colorant Kit
The top of this sofa had a very large split in it, something which is easier to repair than it looks! The damage was repaired using the Leather Repair Kit and then the color was replaced using a Leather Colorant Kit.
This leather sofa suffered a cigarette burn that disfigured the leather and burned a hole through it. This is a common problem, but can be easily repaired with the right products. The leather has been repaired using the Leather Repair Kit for the damage and then re-colored using the Leather Colorant Kit.
This 3 seater leather sofa required a repair to a large tear to the back. Using the Leather Repair Kit, a canvas sub patch in place and then fixed in place. The large gap in-between was filled with Heavy Filler, in thin layers, and then color applied with a sponge at first and then sprayed on. We used a leather colorant kit instead of the Leather Repair Touch Up Kit this time because the damage was larger than the area covered by a tennis ball.
This Chesterfield arm chair, through general wear and tear, had started to suffer cracking and splitting to the leather. The damage was filled using the heavy filler included in the Leather Repair Kit. When sufficiently filled the color was then re-applied using a small antique finish kit (as chesterfields have both a base coat and a top coat of colorant).
This leather sofa had two cuts to the leather caused by a Stanley knife. Using the Leather Repair Kit the cuts were repaired and the color restored using a small Leather Colorant Kit.

How long until I can use my leather again after using this product?
The leather will be touch dry within about 30 minutes. However, as a general rule we advisee that it is best not to use the item for 24 hours after a repair has been made. This gives time for the colourant to cure properly before being subject to stress.
What is the difference between the Leather Colourant Kit and the Complete Leather Repair Kit?
The Complete Leather Repair Kit is specifically designed to repair then colour smaller damage such as rips, tears, scratches, scuffs, wear & tear or fading. The Leather Colourant Kit, on the other hand, is used for restoring larger items of leather such as a full cushion, sofa or car seat.

Yes, once the repair has been made you can use our cleaning and protection products as normal, without causing any problems to the repair.
