Just completed one chair and before I started on the second, I wanted to send you this picture. A lot easier than I thought once you get the knack of it. Very close to the original color, which shows how bad the leather had faded in our sunroom.

I received your Recoloring Kit about a week ago. I thought you’d like to know that after following your very explicit instructions I achieved great success. As you can see from the attached “stain” photos we had a long standing hair-oil stain on a good quality leather couch. The manufacturer had discontinued the color. I sent you a sample of the leather and you sent me the custom Recoloring Kit. The results are shown in the attached “repair” photos.
My wife and I are very satisfied with the end result.
Thank you very much and please accept our best for the New Year.

Fred’s Before & After Photos
I just wanted to let you know what a great product you have, I saw your product about a year ago while surfing the web. Being skeptical as to is this another lure for a product that doesn’t work, I did not order. I looked at my 4 yr old, $3000.00 sectional couch last week and said to my husband “we have to get new furniture, this couch is a mess”, “What for?” he said, “the dogs and cats will ruin that too”…we have 2 big dogs and 3 cats, so you can just imagine. With this I remembered your product, I decided to give it a try, and am I glad I did, I followed your directions which were very easy to follow, gave the one piece 2 coats of sponging and then lightly used the spray for a finish coat. After 48 hrs. I used the leather conditioner and WOW, this part of the sectional looks brand new, I have now started another piece of the sectional, looks as if I will do the whole couch piece by piece,,,oh and the color was matched up perfectly with swatch I sent.,,only one problem I have now is keeping my pets OFF,,, I don’t want them to ruin again, thank you Leather Magic!
Recoloring Done With The Leather Magic Leather Recoloring Kit
Nadine’s Before & After Photos
This week, used your leather cleaner and leather conditioner products on 4 hassocks in my living room that had been sticky from previous cleanings with soap-based products. The hassocks look and feel wonderful now..
I just wanted to take the time to tell you “thank you”. I ordered your leather repair kit and color, and am very satisfied with the results. I could not believe the color match! The directions were fairly simple to follow and the outcome was great! Thanks again.
Hi! I received your product today and couldn’t wait to get started. I followed the directions to a tee and did the passenger seat in my Lincoln MarkVIII first. I took my time and made sure everything was dry before proceeding with the next step. I applied two thin coats with the sponge applicator and laid it off nice and even. After dry time and two coats I gotta tell you I am totally blown away !!! this stuff really is magic! The match you did to my sample I sent was perfect!! My seat looks like it is brand new compared to the drivers seat that is unfinished. Seriously this is a great product! I wish I had discovered it before because I’ve sold cars and furniture in the past that would have been restored with this stuff. I will be ordering more for the back seats soon. Also I used it on the door panels and sill that were the same color and they look new also. I couldn’t be happier !! This was all my car needed to look showroom new and I will recommend you to everyone I can. I may even send before and after pics too! Thanks again!
I want to rave about your product and your service. I cannot tell you how reluctant I was to attempt fixing a problem with my leather sofa. There were worn spots that had discolored and turned red on my expensive burgundy sofa. I called about getting it died, but it would cost a ton to do, and they wanted me to bring the sofa into them. What a hassle and expense. I had pretty much decided to live with the spots on the sofa, since I was not going to pay what they wanted to fix it. My wife was starting to talk about us buying another sofa, when I came across your web site. I dragged my feet on that too, it had to be to tough and to dangerous to do it myself. Finally I called and ordered the material and the big day to fix the spots came yesterday. I called and spoke to Renee about four or five different times while in the process, and she was terrific. She made me feel totally comfortable going through the process, and walked me through each step. She was nice, pleasant, kind, and helpful. What was even better is how the dying process and product worked! My sofa looks band new! I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I received my order today, faster than expected. I was really excited to try the kit, so I tried the cushion of my love seat first. I followed the directions, and cannot believe my furniture. The custom color match is PERFECT!! My furniture looks like I just bought it. I still have to finish my couch and chair. I’m really impressed. Thank you for an excellent product.
I recently received the colored leather conditioner I had ordered from your company, and used it on a faded, dried out leather chair. In past times when I used a conditioner, the chair looked good for about two hours, then returned to looking worn again once the conditioner dried. The arms were very rough and faded, the seat also faded, and there were numerous surface scratches from our dogs nails. After using your wine colored conditioner, not only did the chair look like it just arrived from a furniture store, the previously rough surface of the arms is now soft and supple! I wondered how long that effect would last, if it would again look faded after a few days of use. Although it is my husbands’ chair, where he sits in the evenings, the chair is used by our three dogs during the day. They either curl up to sleep on it, or leap around playing and wrestling. We are VERY pleased to see that it still looks like a new chair! We will be ordering your products again, and recommending them to others.
Thanks so much for such a wonderful product.
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your product. It is amazing! My 70 lb. boxer had claimed my new leather love seat for her own, quickly scratching it and almost completely wearing away the color along the tops of the back cushions, where she decided to perch her head and front paws to look out the window. I was skeptical, but your custom color matching was perfect! Even after the first coat, the difference was remarkable. Three or four light coats did the trick, and the love seat is as good as new. And it was really very easy to do. Thank you!
I finished using the custom color on my Ekornes leather recliner and it looks like NEW!!!!!!!!!!! I was hesitant to even try to improve the soft, uniquely colored leather that was showing signs of wear. Thanks soooooo much! We have a new chair, actually better because the leather conditioner in the kit made the leather even softer!
Hi, I just received my leather repair kit. My son had hooked his very soft leather jacket on something and tore a good sized V shape tear in the one sleeve. I checked out your site and felt it was really credible. I ordered the repair kit and within 4 days I had it. I repaired the tear and it is just beautiful. I followed the instructions in using thin coats and multiple coats and the tear looks like a grain in the leather now. It looks just great and so easy. I definitely will order from you again if the need arises.
Thanks so much for a great site and great service. SO fast. Thanks!
Finally I was able to apply your product to the seat of my car, what a great difference. Instructions are easy to read and easy to follow. The color mix match exactly the color of my car interior. Great product, excellent customer services. Your product exceeded my expectations, by far.
Keep up with the good work.
We recently ordered your leather repair kit and I wanted to tell you how pleased we are with the results. Our sofa was looking quite worn on the seat cushions. Your product restored the sofa to near new in appearance! We were skeptical, I’ll admit and were prepared to purchase new furniture if your product did not work. I was skeptical, but the product performed outstanding results and I would be happy to encourage anyone to try the product. Thanks so much for an outstanding product and result on our furniture!
Wow! Your product is everything it is advertised as and much more…
I don’t think I have ever written a testimonial before because I believe in order to meet that criteria a product has to not just meet customer expectation but exceed them. I was unsure of the color to match my Cadillac STS interior that had suffered some astringent damage and Renee in Customer Service put all my questions (and concerns) to rest.
After diligent sponging, I was truly surprised at the outcome. I will let the attached photos speak for themselves…
Thanks again for a GREAT consumer experience!

I just wanted to send you a note and tell you how great your product is. I spent years looking for some kind of product that would repair marks on my leather couches. My dog, overtime made some scratches in the seats of my leather couches. I contacted every furniture store I could think of asking if there was any product out there that would fix these marks. No one could recommend anything other than having the leather seat cushions replaced. I called for some estimates and received quotes that were upwards of $1100 for both my couch and love seat. About to give up I decided to search online to see if I could find anything. I came across your site, and it seemed as if it was too good to be true. Reluctantly I decided to purchase your leather recoloring kit, figuring it was my last shot in fixing my couches. The kit came and I followed the instructions. A couple hours later, my couches were restored to their original shape. They look GREAT!!!! I can’t thank you enough for developing a product that works so well. This product should be used and recommended by every furniture store. I will tell everyone about this product.
Lastly, thank you for so clearly stating in your instructions to use thin coats of the coloring. That is what I did and it definitely worked best. Customers should definitely plan to spend some time and not hurry while working on their repair, it will just provide better results.
Thank you again for your great product and for saving my couches!!
I am so glad to have found you on the internet – thanks to you two beautiful Danish leather chairs and ottomans have been restored!! The color match was perfect. The instructions were easy to follow and included safety precautions which I took to heart and protected my little birds as well as I was refinishing. I will recommend your products and such great service!! Thank you.
Just wanted to say WOW! This stuff really works!
I own a Leather sectional and the bottom part of the cushion are vinyl. Those areas were cracking and some of the cracks were up a nickel in width and 1″1/2″ in length! I have to say I was skeptical if your product lived up to it’s claim. And it more than surpassed it! The color matched the swatch I sent in perfectly! It now looks brand new!
Thanks So Much!
We just purchased a leather recliner sofa and love seat a month ago. I’m sure you’ll know where I going as soon as I tell you my son has a habit of keeping a uncapped pen in his front pocket. My new love seat had a cluster of pen marking the size of three inch circle. I looked on the internet and found your site after reading some of the testimonials,I was willing give your product a try. FANTASTIC!!!!! The pen marks are completely removed without altering the color of the tan leather. Thanks for a great product!
I had wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the wonderful assistance I received from Leather Magic’s customer service representative Renee. First line customer interface is almost a dying art with technology and contracted call centers representing the most traditional of companies as a first line interface to officiate customer needs. Renee was very efficient in handling my immediate needs, which was to find a color match for my leather sofa, to complete an online order request. I was most impressed with her ability to ascertain exactly what my project entailed, and while offering some helpful preparation tips for recoloring, Renee very well represented additional Leather Magic Products that may be of interest in maintaining the overall quality of my furniture. And she did this seamlessly as she patiently waited as I completed my on line purchase. I am writing to you Leather Magic, boldenly, to suggest that you may have what used to be called a “Diamond in the rough” and what would be viewed in our organization as an individual to be slated for career development.
HAVE A GREAT DAY !!!

Hi. I just wanted to tell you thank you for your wonderful, quick service. Your product is great and saved my NEW sofa. I have two kids and a German Shepard, none of them have confessed to the hole in my sofa. Thanks to you and the great step by step instructions I can’t even tell the hole was ever there. You are on my tool bar now as a FAVORITE. I will tell all my family and friends about you and your great product and fast service. I am sure to buy again, at least until the kids and dog are grown : )
Well, you “nailed” the color and the product works great. I completely re-did my Porsche 911 steering wheel and leather shifter kit and it looks great. It is holding up well. Thanks for your help.
My best regards

Your kit arrived two days ago. There’s a black bomber jacket that I’ve owned for twenty years that really needed touching-up in a few spots. It has a lot of sentimental value and I refused to throw it away. I was able to fix the two minor tears and restore both of the cuffs with ease. All of these things are still noticeable IF you know where to look. I don’t claim to be a professional! All in all I’m very pleased with the results and your service. THANK YOU!
You guys are really on the ball! I placed my order Wednesday, received confirmation right away, and then got my package on Friday. Your emails were clear and you shipped quickly. A lot of other Internet commerce
sites would benefit by following your example. I also wanted to let you know how my (somewhat unusual) project
turned out. My goal was to convert a pair of all-brown vintage dress shoes to two-tone. I wasn’t sure if I would be happy with the results, but after following your (clearly written and well-edited) directions and figuring out a few
tricky masking issues I can say that I’m quite pleased with the results. Attached are a few step-by-step photos that I snapped along the way.
Just wanted to send a note to say thank you.
My son had spilled alcohol based hand cleaner on my new Acura MDX seats and I didn’t clean it up right away. It etched through the leather color finish the size of a half dollar or so. It made it darker in color. Needless to say I was not happy. I found your product searching around on Google. Tried it out and it is amazing stuff. I tried to touch up the spot and that didn’t work, but then did a whole section outlined by the stitches and you can’t even tell now that it was damaged. I will recommend your product to anyone!!
My parents gave us saddle brown buffalo hide leather couch and love seat that they paid over $3,000 for (they won’t tell me the real price). I really hated the medium poop brown color but they were such good quality I could not turn them down. I started searching online when I came across your company. I softened my parents up and assured them I would not ruin the couches even though I had NEVER dyed a leather couch or anything like it. I took the plunge and bought the leather dye in soft black. It was a snap and they turned out gorgeous, beautiful, amazing!!! They are so beautiful that my parents like them better now! They are so soft and rich looking. People can not believe me when I tell them the story. I always have to show them a hidden brown spot on the underneath to prove they are indeed the same couches. Then I have to sprinkle a drop of water on them to prove it doesn’t rub off. Thanks a ton for making such an easy, do it yourself, safe product.
I recently used the Leather Magic dye kit for my Volvo. The Taupe color I ordered was perfect and I re-dyed my worn steering wheel. Looks great! Thanks for having the Volvo stock color! I plan to order the Light Taupe color soon and touch up part of the driver’s seat.
A happy customer!
I just wanted to tell you how excited I am about my “NEW” leather sofa & love seat. My friends were ready to take this 12-year old furniture to the dump. I took it and was a little apprehensive about dying it myself. The sofa & love seat were in very condition except for severe fading from the sun. I sent a sample of the leather color to “Leather Magic” and they matched the color perfectly! The directions were very good and I re-dyed both the sofa & love seat. I am thrilled with the results! My friends are now joking about “taking back” their leather furniture! Thank you, Leather Magic!!!
Thank you sooooo much for the marvelous leather magic and the color match was PERFECT. It looks like a brand new sectional. We have recommended you to others.
I just finished using your dye kit on my 1985 Mercedes 380 SL and just want to let you know that the seats came out perfect! The color was a perfect match and it also saved me from having to purchase new seat covers at a cost of $400.00 per seat. I won’t hesitate to refer anyone that’s in need of your products.
A Very Satisfied Customer
What an incredible product!!!!!!!!!!!!! My wife was flabbergasted at the amazing results of your leather dye/refinishing kit. We were ready to throw out our leather couch and chair but now the cushions look brand new.
Just wanted to tell you how excited I am to find your product. At my beach condo in Sarasota I have a 20′ curved black sectional. I rent this condo to the same couple from Michigan every year for six months and they have always been great tenants with the exception of one thing, they like to keep all the sliding doors open, and consequently this $8000 sectional became very faded in many areas where the sun hit it. This weekend I used your Soft Black Carpet & Upholstery dye and my couch looks like brand new..what a find ! Thanks so much.
I recently purchased your recoloring kit for my ’99 Olds with a light neutral leather interior. I bought the car from an older man, so the car is like new with the exception that he would tend to “slide” into his seat with heavy work clothes on – and therefore the leather was very worn and scuffed. I used your product, and the seat now looks absolutely brand new!! In fact, I had to do the passenger seat, which saw very little use, just so it would match.
The color match was perfect, the product was easy to use, it was the best 50 bucks I have spent in a long time. Thank you!
Dear Leather Magic,
I never write testimonials. You are one amazing company!
My 3 kids had gone off to college and thinking I was finally safe to own grown-up furniture, I bought a 3 piece cream leather grouping. (On installments of course, have you paid college tuition lately?)
Within one month, my cat shredded the corners of the love seat. I debated having her stuffed, but the family convinced me to let her live in the garage. When I called for repair/replacement information from the furniture store, I was told it would cost $350.00 a panel to repair. I needed two panels. And a valium. And a drink. I found your company on the web, and figured for the price, what did I have to lose? The couch was already wrecked, I couldn’t’t do too much more harm, and I still have 3 years of payments to make…I followed the directions and repaired the damaged section, but discovered I had ordered the wrong color. When I ordered a custom color, I was sent the wrong color again, but within days was sent a perfect match, which I applied immediately, and my couch is as good as new. I am SO impressed with your company, your service, and your products! I will recommend you to everyone who needs leather rehabilitation! In this day and age of continual disappointing customer no-service, you are an outstanding example of customer satisfaction. Thank you so, so much. My cat thanks you too.
I took on the project of changing the color of my “blush” 3 piece sectional to dark blue. After I took a lot of time to clean and prep. the sofa, I started with the dye process. I got a little discouraged after the first coat, ( I put it on very thin, like you instructed). I was afraid it would not be dark enough. You were right- each coat will be more true to the color ordered. I didn’t give up and continued. After each coat, it looked better and better. I needed 4 coats to cover the light color sufficiently. I’ve waited the 48 hours and just conditioned it. The only difficult part was getting the dye into the area where the arms and back cushioned overlapped. I cut pieces of 1″x1″x3″ wood, and placed adhesive felt tips on each end of the wood to prevent damage to the sofa, and used them to prop up the pieces until I could blow-dry the dye within the crevices. Otherwise, they stuck together. I’m very proud of my efforts. I love the new color, and will get many more years of use out of my old 10 year sofa.
Your estimates on the material were right on track- I used all but about 2oz. which I will save for touch-ups. Most of all, your phone help gave me the encouragement to know what to expect and proceed. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

I purchased a Recoloring Kit for my 1998 BMW 740il. I ordered from the color swatches on the web site and upon receiving the kit I realized I had ordered the wrong color.. My fault… I called and received excellent friendly support. It was suggested that I send a small swatch in for matching. I shipped back my color and received the new color you made from the swatch in 4 days! The spot on my back seat had been a small one until I had tried a number of products to remove it. I made it a large unsightly stain… I followed the directions and recolored the left side of my back seat. It turned out great!!! SO good that I used the product to recolor my center armrests as well as the back of the Drivers seat in the car. I have told a number of people about your product and I am ordering a second kit for our Leather Couch today! I may also order one for my Wife’s beloved leather jacket.
Keep up the excellent service!
I am writing to tell you how thrilled I am with your leather repair kit! I was VERY skeptical about the possibility of fixing the scratches and small tears caused by our dog in our brand new leather furniture. These rips and tears were on the major stress areas of the seats which I thought would just rip open again once they were sat on. Also, I thought that even if it could repair the leather, it would never be a complete color match. Boy, was I wrong!! Our furniture really does look new again and it was not difficult at all. This product is a God send and I will recommend it to everyone! Thank you, thank you,
We had scratches on the cushions of a beautiful and rather expensive leather sofa and love seat from a dog. We sent you a swatch of leather from the sofa, and you expertly matched the color. The application of the product was easy and effective. Although the cushions are not perfectly new, it would be difficult for someone who didn’t know where to look to find the initial damage. You have a great product! Thanks for saving us from having to purchase a new sofa and love seat. I will be sure to endorse your product to anyone in need of leather repair
I have to tell you how wonderful your product is. It took me about 7 hours but I redid my entire sectional last Friday and when my husband got home from work he could not believe how nice it looked. He thought it looked brand new. The color is rich and beautiful and though I used only a little over half of it, I am saving it to touch up or redo as needed. I cannot thank you enough for your product. I’ll be sure to tell others about you. Thanks.
Just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the re-coloring kit I purchased several months ago and finally got around to using a few days before my annual Super Bowl party. The 10 yr-old leather sectional had faded and was showing wear and tear from dog and cat scratches over the years. Before I found your company online, I was seriously thinking about discarding it, except that it is an expensive piece of furniture from a quality manufacturer. I thought what have I got to lose. Well, I’m still amazed with how great it looks. It took me about 6-7 hours, but the darn thing looks wonderful, almost brand new. My friends were likewise awed. I feel as though I saved
at least $2000.00.
You have a great product.
I have received your product, with thanks, and finally applied it to my whole interior. Once all the prepping and repairs had been made I applied four coats of colour cote – although the finish looks fine, is this enough coats? I am extremely pleased with the results but sorry that i never taken any before and after photographs. I believe that the before and after photographs would have been ideal for your web site as the transformation is far greater than the photographs currently displayed in your gallery.
Just thought I’d drop a note to say how good my first reconditioning project turned out. Even my wife was impressed on the results I got when I reconditioned the car’s seats.
I got a recoloring kit custom matched to a paint chip that matched the leather in my 97 audi a8. Most impressive result and such exact color matching! Feel free to steal, use, edit, etc the images/text whatever you want from my post- and I can send higher resolution pictures if you wish- I compressed those for the post.. I am very happy with the results from the Leather Magic kit. I do wish the dye were listed as a separately available bottle- but no big deal, and the conditioner works great! Thanks,
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! Your product saved my leather sofas. I thought they were lost after my cat used them for a scratching post. The Recoloring Kit was easy to use and the results…..I have two brand new looking Leather Sofas! Friends and Family have commented on how great they look. I will gladly pass on your name and product to those interested.
I purchased a 97 cadillac from a Dr’s estate. It that had just a few thousand miles on it. However, the old Dr. urinated in the front seat and stained it badly. To replace the cover is $565.00. To sew in a new seat pad is $258. Tried your dye kit. Cost: $39.95 (thereabouts) Labor: about 15 minutes. Cleaned as instructed put on 3 coats with applicator. No spraying needed. Results: Unbelievable. You simply cannot tell it had been stained.
I just wanted to say how much I like your product. I’d been wanting leather seats for my 1990 Eagle Talon for a while, but finding them in good condition seemed impossible (12 years old, remember). I decided to pick up a set that was in “reasonable” condition, and try to recondition them with your Restoration and Recoloring Kit. I couldn’t be more satisfied! I was a little worried about how well it would work with the leather being perforated, but it came out fantastic. Anyway, I just wanted to give credit where it’s due. Great product! Sincerely,
In April 2001 I ordered a repair kit from you. I let it sit in a closet for a year before deciding to use it. This week in April of 2002 I finally got up enough nerve to tackle the job. I completely did over the interior in my 1988 BMW 735i, I was amazed, it looks like new. I would caution any users not to let their kit sit for a year, the dye tends to coagulate in the bottom of the container and inhibit spraying. All in all it has been a nice experience.
Just repaired a one inch slit in my new green leather couch and thanks to your kit the repair is nearly invisible! A leather repair man came to the house to give us an estimate that was $150.00 !!! Thanks for the great do it yourself product. It is easy to use and REALLY works!
I sent for a repair kit and a recoloring kit to use on an old off-white sofa. The sofa was in good condition except that one of the cushions had developed some cracks that allowed the dark natural leather color to show through. The repair was pretty easy to do and the “custom” color spray finish was perfect. I refinished all 3 of the cushions to be sure they matched each other as well as to freshen them up. I used a Q-tip to be sure to get the color finish into the “wrinkles” that form as some leather furniture ages and then did the spray … it looks great. I just finished it today and we will wait the 48 hours that you suggest before adding the conditioner, but as it sits now, it is beautiful. We are hoping for extra service from this sofa that has been a friend of our house, thanks for giving it a new lease on life.
I am selling some rebuilt ABS brake systems, and ended up on the Buick Reatta chat board. When browsing some messages there, I noticed someone had posted about needing steering wheel repairs. I used the opportunity to give your company some free advertising, explaining how well your products worked. So when/if Buick Reatta orders start flowing in, you will know why. I have three Allante’ steering wheels to do myself, I am working on replacing some solid armrests with cup holder armrests, and will use Leather Magic to recolor the new ones. I have recolored two headliners for Allante’ hardtops, one center console, plus performed a lot of seat repairs. I really like your products, and am glad to spread the word.
Thanks so much for the kit. I was a little nervous as to how it would work on re-doing the Leather interior on my Lexus, but it is almost unnoticeable that anything has been done, except that the scratch marks that were previously visible are total re colored and virtually unnoticeable!! If it holds up over time, this is an awesome product. The color was extremely close to original, so you obviously take care in the color matching and pride in this product.
I received my leather repair kit yesterday and tried it out on my car seat. I was so impressed on what a wonderful job it did. Thank you very much.
Just wanted to write you a note letting you know the outcome of the repair job my husband did on my car’s leather seats with one of your kits. Since he’s part kid anyway, he thoroughly enjoyed reading about how to mix the color and reading the instructions and looking at all of the different containers of colors. (You’d have thought he was going to build a plane or something with as long and as interested in the whole procedure as he got.) He mixed and “played” with the different colors and had such fun! The end result was very, very pleasing. It looks so great we’re telling our friend and neighbors about it. I just hope your product is there if I ever need to repair a leather seat in the future. Thanks so much.
My off-white sectional sofa had two scratches which had torn the surface of the leather, leaving small, but unsightly blemishes. I frankly didn’t think the Leather Magic kit would do the job, but I thought I would give it a try. I followed the directions and (Big Surprise!) produced a perfect color match, and for all practical purposes, an invisible job. Even more surprising, six months later the repair is as good as the day I did it! My wife is still amazed! One word of warning….The kit gives you the materials to do the job, but it can’t do it for you. But, if you are willing to be patient and take your time, amazing results are possible.
