Frequently Asked Questions
There are dark patches on my couch where the head would rest?Tim WheelerA. This is common with this type of leather. It is meant to develop the worn look over time. So what ever you spill or mark it with will add character to the leather surface. This includes body and hair oils. The idea of the care kit is to clean the leather surface before replenishing the oils and waxes back into the leather hide to prevent it from drying out.
Can I use your Leather Filler before applying the dye to fill some cracks?Tim Wheeler
No. You can't use leather filler or our Leather Repair Resin and leather dye together. The Leather Dye is alcohol based so it will soften the filler or resin. If you have an aniline leather, then no filler just dye. If you have a finished / pigmented leather then you can use the resin or filler and leather colour, which is leather paint.
I have an Aniline Leather couch with cracking on the arms. Can I use the Leather Filler and Premium Leather Dye to repair?Tim Wheeler
You can’t repair Aniline Leather like you can a Finished / Pigmented Leather. Once you sand and apply Leather Filler to an Aniline Leather it then becomes a Finished / Pigmented leather and needs Leather Paint to cover the filler. Your not going to replicate that finish with Leather Paint.
You can rub Leather Dye into your Aniline Leather (once prepped with Leather Prep) but you can't fill and sand the cracking. Dye takes on the colour is being applied to. So where there is colour now or a darker spot this will keep getting dark so the finish will be uneven. Thats how Aniline is.
Can I use your leather dye on other surfaces like suede, canvas or timber?Tim Wheeler
We say our Leather Dye is for leather but its up to you what you want to use it on.
Can I use the leather cleaning kit on blue leather?Tim Wheeler
Yes. You can use the Comprehensive Leather Care kit on all coloured leathers and not just white. This kit is designed for pigmented and finished leathers.
I have badly worn / cracked seating cushion. Can I use your products to repair and recolour this damage?Tim Wheeler
Yes and No. Not all leather is repairable as such. Generally the seating areas along with the arm and headrest areas are damaged from body oils, perspiration etc. The leather has absorbed these contaminates over the years so getting a permeant repair is near impossible. Adhesion may / will be an issue or those areas will crack again with little use.
You may also want to look at using our Leather Repair Resin if you don't want to do leather panel replacements.
If you do go ahead and repair badly damaged areas and the repairs fail, please don't blame our products when this happens.
I want to recolour my 5 seater modular. Would 500ml leather colour be enough?Tim Wheeler
No. You would need 3 litres or the 3lt kit for a 5 seater modular, no chaise. You'll also find an "Coverage Guide Ideal For..." under each kit listed in the "In The Box" tab. If you are ordering a 3lt kit and your modular has a chaise or is extra large you will need to purchase the additional 1lt Leather Colour
