I was given a Nubuck leather sofa and due to its age and the animated play of the children, one seat has developed holes in it. Do I buy a leather repair kit online or glue it myself? I would be grateful for any suggestions?

  • I think it is best to get it professionally done.

  • I agree with taking a photo and take it into a leather sofa shop!

  • yeah if you have those patches still, they are easily lost if you received any in the first palce

  • We just bought a new leather lounge & the manufacturer gave us a small patch I guess if we need a repair job done the track. I would find out from the manufacturer of yours if they can also.

  • you could take a photo and take it into a leather sofa shop and ask their advice because depending on size of damage it may be better to get it professionally done.

  • I would call a few leather repair man and ask for a quote. If you got it for free you are already ahead. Maybe if the hole is on a cushion they could cut and add a new strip. You could match both cushions this way. Adding a panel will not look bad.

  • would like to see answers to mending leather furniture as back of my computer char has holes there?, I was thinking of sticking different colour piece of leather cut in fancy shape, personalising my chair and covering damage I did make.. My son’s wedding photo, taken last year with one of the three new grandkids I got , so increase in family is good one , been babysitting and it is fun

  • I would seek some professional advice and they may be able to give you some good patching advice tips, kits or ideas. Good Luck! :)

  • I’d probably consider calling a professional for this.

  • If its a small hole you could try looking under the sofa to see if there is any excess pieces that you could cut off. if so use a tiny amount of glue that it suitable to use on leather and stick them on. Or you could try looking around for a leather off cut colour that will match your sofa. We have a leather sofa that has had a hole in it and it was easy to repair but it was only one small hole in a spot thats out of the way of where the kids play on it.
