Your Leather Beautifully Restored To Its Original Look, Feel And Performance - Without Reupholstering.

Leather restoration example - before and after

If your leather is faded, worn, damaged or just tired and shabby, you can have it professionally restored to it's original look and feel ... saving you a fortune in reupholstery or replacement costs.

Or, if your leather is simply dirty, grubby or soiled and needs to be maintained, it can be professionally cleaned and protected to prevent it from wearing out prematurely.

The above photos show an example of a worn antiqued red leather suite I refinished. In less than 2 years of constant use, the finish wore through and discoloured. A great example of restored leather.

... all maintained using professional leather cleaners and protectors; repaired, restored and refinished using the exact same products as originally used in the tannery.

Your Leather Cleaned, Conditioned And Protected...

Here's some photos of a white leather couch and car leather being cleaned.

Many people are reluctant to use leather care products on their leather for fear of causing irreversible damage.

You don't have to worry about that any more ... your leather can be professionally cleaned and maintained, so you can be sure your leather is well taken care of.

Worn And Damaged Leather Repaired And Refinished ...

Most people think that when their leather starts looking shabby, it can't be fixed. Truth is, the old finish can be chemically removed and then repaired, recoloured or refinished to its original colour ... without having to unpick or disassemble the item.

With over 30 years experience in the leather industry, you can be sure your leather will look, feel and perform as the original.

Here's a 'before' and 'after' photo of a leather couch I've repaired and refinished. You can see in the left photo, not only has the colour faded but there is a nasty scuff running across the leading edge of the seat cushion. The photo on the right shows the result after the couch has been repaired and refinished.

So, if your leather is not looking as good as it used to, or even in a state which you find embarassing, you'll be glad to know that it can very easily be brought to its former glory.

If you think your leather is 'past it', have a look at these old car seats ...

I got to work the next photo shows how they came up. The owner was delighted!

"Hi Paul, you know that leather trim you refinished in the Rolls Royce belonging to (name deleted)? Well, he was almost in tears when he came to pick it up. He never believed the leather would have come up as good as it did.

Thought you might like to know!" - B M, Ashburton
