Comes with all the right products and tools to make professional repairs to all leather items.
Also suitable for artifical leathers like vinyl.
Each kit contains:
This kit is excellent value for money - if all products were purchased individually, they would total over £30.
The Leather Repair Kit is a small kit containing all the products required to quickly and easily make professional repairs to any damaged leather item, regardless of your level of experience or technical abilities.
The products contained within this kit will enable anyone to repair:
At a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new item or calling out a professional.
This kit only contains the products needed to repair the damage and not colour it. If you want to make a small repair invisible use our Touch Up Kit, or for larger repairs, use our Leather Colourant Kit. This will allow you to match the colour of your leather and apply the colourant to the repair for a seamless and professional finish.
The Leather Repair Kit can be used to repair all different articles of leather, from furniture and car interior to clothes, shoes, handbags and even equestrian leathers.
Aniline & Semi-Aniline Leather
Pigmented / Top Coat Leather
Oil & Wax Pull Up Leather
Two Tone, Mottled & Antique Finished Leather
The products provided in the Leather Repair Kit are sufficient for the repair of several small areas of damage, or around 4-5 small rips or cigarette burns for example, for larger areas of damage the coverage will be reduced as would be expected.
In terms of shelf life, the kit will last for many years if kept in a cool, dry area with the lids fastened.
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-coloured using the Leather Colourant 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 colour was replaced using a Leather Colourant 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-coloured using the Leather Colourant 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 colour applied with a sponge at first and then sprayed on. We used a leather colourant 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 colour 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 colour restored using a small Leather Colourant Kit.
Making a repair to damaged leather is a far easier process than many expect, to demonstrate this, in addition to the instructional videos provided above, we have also produced series of step by step guides (with pictures) listed below for quick and easy reference:
Please view the videos provided below for easy to follow, visual instruction on how to use this product effectively, demonstrating how easy it is to use on real life examples.
Absolutely not, repairing damage to leather such as cracking, holes, cigarette burns, tears and cuts is a much easier process than you might think. The tools and instructions in the Leather Repair Kit and the easy to follow step by step instructional videos and repair guides available on our website have been designed to allow absolutely anybody to achieve professional standard repairs.
As a general rule we advise that you should not use the leather for 24 hours after making a repair, this allows time for the adhesives and the leather filler used in the repair to cure completely, giving a much stronger and longer lasting repair. Using your furniture before this will increase the risk of the repair splitting or coming away.
Yes, the leather filler included in the kit that will be used in most common repairs cures with a white colour, making the repair stand out from the surrounding leather. Even if the filler is not required, often the application of colourant matching the colour of the leather item is required to hide the repair effectively. In order to achieve a repair which is as close to invisible as possible we recommend the use of one of these products: the Leather Repair Touch Up Kit is used to match the colour of the leather item and then applied to conceal small repairs, where as the Leather Colourant Kit is used for the same purpose, but on larger areas of damage.
While a repair can never be as strong as brand new leather, a good repair, following the instructions we have provided in our leather repair videos or guides, will typically last for many years, even on an area of high use, it is not uncommon that a well made repair can last for the remaining life of the item. However, if the original rip or tear occurred due to being clawed by animals or jumped on by children for example, and this occurs again after making the repair, it is likely that the repair will fail just as the original leather did. Good care and maintenance of your leather, both new and repaired, will always extend its life significantly.
Yes, once the repair has been made and given adequate time to cure you can use our cleaning and protection products on your leather as normal, without fear of causing any problems to the repair. For the best results in both cleaning and protection for new and repaired leather we recommend our Leather Care Kit which combines our Leather Ultra Clean and Leather Protection Cream products, ideal for cleaning and maintaining all of your leather items.
Leather cleaning kit
I purchased the leather cleaning kit and used it as soon as it arrived, I purposely left a "dirty" area to see the difference, oh wow, I didnt realise just how grubby my 6 year old sofa was!!, its cream in colour and there is only two adults living here with the occasional children visiting and we use a blanket on the seated area to try and keep it clean but inevitably, we can't protect it 100% of the time but now we don't have to as I can clean it as and when I need to without worrying, thankyou for a great product, Im just about to purchase a stain remover for the unexpected mishaps :)
Yes, I recommend this product.
