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. 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 can't have your sofa looking like new.There are no long-term repair products on the market, just quick fixes. 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...

I had a tiger (real Bengal) try to sharpen claws on leather arm of couch so there are puncture marks all over sofa. Help me!
Looking for a color paint for my leather couch that my dig licked off. Expresso brown. Where can I find this?
I attempted to send an email to email@example.com & received a message that the email is undeliverable. Is it possible that it was given as an incorrect email address? I have a red leather ottoman that needs restoration. Can you help me?
The feedback you responded to was posted in 2005. I'm afraid the person must no longer be using that old email address. I will delete the address so no future readers try to contact him.
Good luck finding someone to restore your furniture.
Can you get a wear mark out of a leather couch?

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.
My leather sofa is peeling. Is there any way to repair it?
By Dorothy Lucas from Fort Lauderdale
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.
