How to repair leather jackets?
Each leather product is the highest quality available in the industry.
Sometimes, your favorite leather jacket or leather furniture gets torn. What do you do then? In many cases a simple leather repair kit will solve the problem, but other times a professional is needed. Getting more familiar with the basics of leather goes a long way when you need to make an assessment.
It would seem that leather jacket repair is an exceedingly difficult task, when compared to the much more common practice of cotton alterations. It requires a level of concentration that is only acquired through experience.
Store your leather jacket either flat or on a wide, sturdy, padded hanger to prevent stretch marks. Never use plastic covers.
On average, the cost of repairing a torn leather jacket is approx £50, which is usually very reasonable compared with the purchase of a new leather jacket. This proves again that leather products are a long term investment and you can enjoy your leather jacket for many years!
You need to remove any rough edges that are around the tear or cut. If the damage is a burn, you will need to cut the entire burn out of the leather jacket.
To remove small scratches or cracks, apply leather conditioner (available at hardware, upholstery, auto supply and saddlery stores). Leather conditioner makes leather smooth and supple and can remove imperfections due to dryness. If leather conditioner doesn't remove a scratch, try using a shoe polish that matches the leather color. Always test in an inconspicuous spot beforehand.
