Leather Repairs

The team at Carleton Custom Upholstry are specialists in leather upholstery repairs and are able to repair most scratches, rips & tears on leather funiture both new and old.

We can restore leather that has been worn out so it looks almost like it has been re-upholstered. We use a combination of traditional colour restoration techniques along with todays current leather restoration technologies to bring your leather furniture back to life.

Colour Restoration

Common problems with leather furniture can include colour loss due to spillages of household products e.g. paint, nail varnish, ink and incorrect cleaning products. Usually the colour can be restored using special pigments which are coloured to match your leather. The colours will then be sealed in using a protective top coat finish.

Leather Cracks & Discolouration

Placing your leather sofa next to a heat source such as heaters, and wood fires can dry out the natural oils causing the leather to crack. The ultraviolet rays from direct sunlight over a period of time will also cause fading.

We can replace the individual panels that make up your leather sofa or chairs. A colour matched piece of leather can be stitched into place after removing the damaged piece leaving your furniture looking like new.

Leather Scratch Repairs

Sharp objects like buckles, shoes and pets can cause small scuffs, cuts and scratches. These can be repaired using our precision leather repair and colour matching techniques.

If left unrepaired, areas of broken stitching will get worse. Using various traditional techniques, broken stitching (including decorative stitching) can be repaired by hand.
