There are 2 types of repair kits and 4 – 5 different size options (depending on type). Repair Kits and Colour Restoration Kits help you get all the gear you need at a great bundle price. Depending on your job, one type may be more suitable than other.
Repair Kits are ideal for large or small complete refinishing projects where full coverage is required. You can change the colour, recolour or touch-up a few scuffs or isolated sections. When covering stains, leather filler or changing the colour, this is the way to go.

4 Simple Steps
With 4 simple steps you can transform your leather furniture using the same finishing system the professionals use. By replicating the original manufacturer’s finish, years of wear and tear can be restored whilst lending protection to the leather. In just a couple of hours, with the simplest of tools, you can bring back the luxury of beautifully finished leather.
Colour Restoration Kits
Colour Restoration Kits are designed for refreshing the entire surface with the existing colour. When you want to give your old sofa a quick and easy make-over, Colour Restoration Kits are the answer. Coverage is semi-opaque and increases with each coat giving you lots of control. Scratches, scuffs and colour wear are dramatically minimised giving a remarkably renewed look and feel.

2 Simple Steps
When the aim is to refresh tired, lightly discoloured and scuffed leather, the Colour Restoration Cream process couldn’t be easier. Once the leather clean, build the level of coverage by layering coats of colour cream. The finish is beautiful, hardwearing and easy to top-up when the need arises. In a couple of hours, simply incredible results can be achieved.
Can I use both?
Yes. If you need to repair an isolated area of damage, say a patch of cat scratches, you need a Repair Kit. If you also want to refresh the finish of the rest of the sofa, you can use a Colour Restoration Kit once the repaired areas are dry.
