Why restore your leather car seats? There may be several different reasons; for example, it may be that your leather seats are still in good structural condition, but have some wear and tear and damage such as scratches to the surface of the leather. Many lease cars now have leather interiors and all too often you may have inadvertently damaged them. This can lead to a hefty bill from the lease company if it’s not addressed before handing the car back.
However, the best reason of all is cost. Reupholstering with a new leather interior can cost many thousands of pounds. Restoring existing leather car seats will cost significantly less, whilst leaving a surface essentially the same as the original factory finish, giving you many more years of use.

Our Professional Leather Car Seat Restoration Service...
Our customer had purchased a mint conditon Ferrari 308 (the 'Magnum PI' one, for those of a certain age). Unfortunately, the driver's seat bolster had been severely neglected and was cracked and worn. Our repair process dealt with the damage and recoloured to match.
This is what happens when your dogs rule the roost! These Volvo V70 seats were in a very bad way. Underneath the dirt and a few scratches, they were actually not badly worn and a perfect candidate for restoration
Underneath the nasty stuff there was a nice seat! We had a few scratches from dog claws to fix, recoloured in black to match existing, and sealed wth a nice semi-matt finish
This Porsche 944 seat required full restoration. First we deep cleaned, stripped down to a stable surface, recoloured to original Porsche factory colour and resealed.
Due to the high quality of the original Porsche leather, despite the car having covered well over 100k miles, the resulting restoration left the seat looking as good as new and ready for another 100k!
We can usually restore most types of leather. The most common leather car seat restoration that we come across is for pigmented leather (the most common leather used for car seats and domestic leather upholstery). It generally responds extremely well to being restored. Another, less common leather finish that we see is called aniline or semi-aniline finish. Because the surface of aniline leather is essentially unsealed and porous, it tends to get damaged by spillages and soiling, leaving it unsightly to look at and difficult, if not impossible to clean.
If this has happened to your aniline leather car upholstery, we may be able to help. Our process essentially turns your aniline leather into a pigmented leather. It will change the look and feel of it (and so we will need to discuss your expectations in some detail), but may be an option to consider rather than having to reupholster it.
When we initially speak with you, we will discuss and identify what type of leather you have and advise accordingly on what professional leather restoration results are achievable, based on the extent of wear and damage to your leather that is currently present.
What Types Of Leather Car Seat Can We Restore?
Most of our customers who discover our leather car seat restoration service tell us that they didn’t even know it could be done.
Results of will, of course, depend very much on the current condition. Before we can quote, we will always need to look at some photos and in some cases visit to inspect the seats.
Can we restore any damage? No! Sometimes, the surface may simply be too worn or damaged for a repair to be worthwhile or economical.
We will always give you an honest opinion of what is achievable and what you can expect.
