Leather Repair & Restoration Process
The methods and products we use are traditional and offer you a lovely finished job that will look and feel like natural leather. The process we use is similar to connollising however we have far improved on this out dated method with the use of new uniquely developed products, exclusive to us.
We thoroughly prepare the leather for colouring. We clean and remove all dirt from cracks and creases and then apply special chemicals to remove the manufactured finish. This opens the leather up allowing it to absorb and take the colouring in a better fashion.
At this stage we make any repairs to the leather. Worn, cracked and weak leather would now be either replaced or strengthened and we'd fix and re-grain any cuts, rips, tears, burns or holes.
Colour is then applied. The first coat is applied by hand working it into all natural creases and hard to reach areas. A second coat is then applied using a spray gun for a natural and even finish.
That is where most people stop; however, we have developed an extremely hard wearing top coat lacquer to seal the colour in. We supply this lacquer to many manufactures as it provides superior strength to their leather.
After colouring your leather we then spray this lacquer on top. This seals in the colour and greatly increases the life span you would expect to get from the leather. The lacquer also improves the texture of the leather giving it a smooth, soft & silky feel.
