Coloring / Dying leather
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:23 PM »
Hello all
My question pertains to coloring or refurbishing color to leather furniture.  I have a few leather chairs that the color has faded over the years of use.  Nothing major but would like to get the color back to where it should be. Both pieces have the area where a persons head would rest that have lightened in color.   

I was not sure if I should buy a dye or some other material to regain the original color.

Thank you

Hi, I have re painted leather with excellent results.
I cut a tiny patch from an inconspicuous part, of the underside of a chair. Sent it to a leather dye company, and they sent out the relevant stuff in a kit.

It was very easy, and the chairs looked brand new after. Most of these places sell products that restore but, keep the aged look if needed. My needs were just for a revamp on six very comfy dining chairs.
