What do you do with a 10 year old, leather couch that is starting to look wrinkly and cracking? Is there any product we should be using on our couch? Leather conditioner?

There is a product you can get in the UK called RENAPUR. Its like an intensive moisuriser, that brings the colous back to the surface. Brilliant stuff. Haven't seen it around for a while but worth looking out for. good luck.

I restore and refinish leather in any colour you want

and as long as it is only the pigment and the finish that is cracking and the leather is of good quality

there is no reason why you cant have your sofa looking like new.There are no long term repair products on the market just quick fixes. If you would like to know more contact me at I have a company that specialises in leather restoration and the results and effects that can be achieved are incredible. I refinished a leather suite recently in a mother of pearl effect.

It really sounds like you just need a good leather cleaning and conditioning... Lexol or No Bull leather treatment may be all you need. You can find No Bull On ebay and lexol any horse and tack or auto parts store... Yes there are companies that may be in your area that can re color... However you might just need some service... Consider finding a leather cleaning company in your area... check out some links on this sight

To find out about leather types such as "pigmented" verses aniline check out this link  eatherTypes.html

If your leather is aniline .... recoloring will change the feel....

I have had good luck with a little olive oil and a soft rag.

We have two large dogs that are like family members---meaning they sit where we sit. I use CPR leather cleaner from Bed, Bath, and Beyond as a regular cleaner for my sofas. It helps clean and brings back the luster to the sofas. One tube will do both sofas and a chair with ottman (completely) a minimum of two times (depends on how heavy you apply it).

My leather sofa is peeling. Is there any way to repair it?

I don't think a real leather couch would peel. I think you have some sort of man made fabric. What is causing this? Wear? I doubt that there is anyway to repair this, sorry.
