Why Repair Leather Sofa?

The diagnosis is clear, your leather sofa has suffered from scratches, stains, cat scratches, or even cracking. The good news is that this noble material can be easily repaired! Just like leather clothing and shoes, there are restorative products available. They allow you to fill in the tears while preserving the colors.
However, if the hole is too large, you may need to sew up the torn area. A fabric patch could be used to cover the hole.
