Leather Chair Repairs and Restore

The leather had dried out, faded and worn thin. The arms of the chairs were broken at the joints. They were about to go to the skip until the client decided to try and get them fixed up.

I stripped off the old leather, repaired the arms and then recovered them with natural veg tanned leather, hand dyed to the colour with a bespoke dye made for me.

The lacing you see replicated the original lacing seen in the originals. The rivets used also replicated what was used on the originals.

The dye used was mixed for me by Northants Leather Chemicals Limited.
