Leather repair is a wonderful and often over looked solution for your leather furniture in your home or office! Leather furniture can begin to show its age through various issues over time, such as fading and color loss from daily use, dirt and grime penetrating into the pores of the leather, and other problems like rips, tears, snags, burns, seam splits and more.
Leather furniture is made to be strong and as sturdy as it is luxurious and durable. Over time the barriers placed during the process of making our leather furniture start to break down, and this is when problems arise. Before your leather furniture came to be the luxurious item that it is today, it started out as a complete and very large full hide. This hide was then dyed in a process called tanning. The tanning process is when the leather hides are soaked in large drums for weeks or even months to fully and thoroughly absorb the dye into a full, rich and even color. After the hide has finished tanning, they are then purchased and transformed into the leather goods that we all well know and love.
The tanning process adds not only vibrant color to the otherwise plain leather hide, it also adds layers of protection. These layers help to naturally form a protective seal over the pores that occur across the hide, because, after all, leather is skin. After the tanned hide is then made into your leather furniture or goods, it is sealed with another layer of added protection, a clear yet strong top coat. This helps hold the color fastness within your furniture as well as help keep out dirt and grime. Naturally these barriers break down as time wears on, but they ensure that you will get years of enjoyment from your leather.
But what happens when your leather becomes damaged in the mean time? Sure you haven't had it very long, it is still in pretty great condition, but sometimes accidents happen. The most common issue that occurs is color loss from varying reasons like fading and daily activity, and damages from pets, like cat claws scratching the edges of the sofa, or dogs digging for some hidden delicacy that is unbeknownst to us.
