Leather colour loss can be the result of normal wear and tear. Leather repairs offer a solution to damage caused to the finish by dye transfer from non colourfast clothes where the colour of the leather is stained by the dye from new blue jeans for example or by spillages of chemicals such as nail varnish and nail varnish remover, ink or hair products such as hairspray. This can usually be remedied by cleaning, mixing a correct colour and applying a leather pigment and sealer to the affected area.
Recolouring Leather - Below are before and after examples of repair work carried out on leather sofas and chairs in customer's homes.
The sofa had a juice spillage and as a result the leather became discoloured. The cover was restored and resealed in their home on the initial visit.
This family in Kings Langley asked us to help them with their leather suite which was nicely worn in and comfortable after a few years use but unfortunately had lost its colour due to a breakdown in the surface top coat sealer. Both sofas were recoloured and sealed in the customers home saving them having to purchase new furniture.
The headrest on this chair had worn over years of use, spoiling the appearance. We stripped and refinished the leather on our initial visit to the customers delight in their home.
Should an accident like this with nail varnish remover ruin the appearance of your furniture, I can match the dye on site to the colour of your leather furniture and magically airbrush any trace of the damage.
A child left alone in a room with a biro had some fun! We removed the ink on this sofa and refinished the leather again in the customers home on the intial visit.
A customer accidentally left a hot cup on the arm of their settee. We can refinish the damaged areas shown in this example.
For the best results it is advisable to address areas of concern before they deteriorate to the point where panels need to be replaced. We are always willing to help but the sooner signs of damage are addressed the better chance you have of a more economical route to a succesful outcome. As the saying goes 'A stitch in time saves nine'.
