3 simple steps
Restoring aniline leathers requires a balancing act. Typically, older aniline sofas display a combination of UV fading, stains, and coatings wear and tear. Our formulations have been developed to deliver a balance on all priorities:
First, surface prep removes surface soiling, open the pours for maximum adhesion of coatings and can help to minimise stains
Next, Dye Stain penetrates, boosts and balances the overall colour of the leather
Lastly, Colour Restoration Cream contributes a semi-opaque, self-sealing coating that lightly conceals marks, unifies colour and leaves a beautiful, protective finish on the surface
No special equipment
Do it yourself and save money. This kit assembles the products used by professionals to restore aniline leathers. No special equipment is required and, after protecting your floors, you can work on your furniture right where it is. It can also be used to restore handbags and apparel.
For maximise durability of coatings, 2 coats of clear topcoat can be applied. Satin finish is ideal for this.
Colour & sheen
Choose from 13 popular colours. Sample Pots are great for colour testing. They contain leather paint which is a different product but the colours are the same.
The finish (sheen or shine level) is satin. If you'd like a flatter finish, add Dulling Agent (No.30) to the Colour Restoration Cream (No.32). If you'd like a shinier finish, add Topcoat Gloss or High Gloss then apply a couple of coats over your colour work. Sold separately.

Aniline leather looks beautiful, feels luxurious and is often premium quality. Although it can remain durable for many years, the original good looks can become compromised.
UV exposure can cause the colour to fade.
The occassional spill can leave a permanent mark.
Hair and skin oil can leave nasty dark shadows - especially on 'the favourite seat'.
The surface can become rough, dry and exposed eventually leading to rips and tears.
