Mrs S, Basingstoke, Hampshire. 2 Seater Leather Sofa Repair Following Dog Chewing By Leather Repair Master, Reading

My client contacted me at 1715 on a Saturday evening in a bit of a panic following the discovery of damage to the arm of a leather sofa caused by a dog chewing it. The issue was, it was her Daughters leather couch and she was looking after her house whilst she was away. At least it was her Daughters dog who caused it. Her Daughter was to return in 3 days time and i had commitments stretching well over 2 weeks.


Note the leather had been mis-shapen, chewed and pieces missing, plus the leather grain detail lost.  We discussed the options, ideally the sofa should undergo leather panel replacement to be invisible, but there was no time for this. I agreed to return 2 days later, early on my way to other jobs and carry out a quick leather fix to best results in the time we had available. It was never going to be pretty, but the client was delighted with the service and resulting leather repair considering the time spent, commenting that she thinks her Daughter will be happy to live with it.


With a bit more time, the leather repair would have looked better by way of disguising of the witness lines and irregularities that can be seen then working the whole leather panelusing an exact colour match and seal to blend - this would have resulted in an almost impossible to detect repair. Further, the leather panel could have been replaced leaving no trace of damage whatsoever.
