Mega Makeover Month

September has come and gone and we recorded our second best month ever! At times our floor space was so crammed with projects that it was like a maze to get from A to B through a pathway of gaps between couches! Not only were we busy in the factory, but you DIYers were busy [...]

Largest Antique Restoration (So Far)

No job is too big...It just takes longer to do! Some projects make more sense to do on site as they could get damaged in transport anyhow which defeats the purpose of taking them back to the factory. In the case of local and other governments, you usually only have a limited timeframe to complete [...]

A Deluge of DIY Delights

July saw our best month ever in DIY sales with kits ranging from small tear repair kits to car seat colour restoration right through to large full colour change restorations on modular couches.

Bold Repairs... When your products perform

Before I developed Leatha Menda and Super Seal Filler, I wouldn't attempt repairs as extensive as this. I just didn't have the confidence that the repair, although virtually invisible, would last. 5 years on and these two products have revolutionised repair possibilities for leather technicians all around the globe. If nothing else, they've helped decrease [...]

Motorcycle Month

This past month has brought some interesting projects in to be restored. One was a referral from another leather technician where the customer wanted his motorbike suit leathers to match his Kawasaki. The other was strap restoring and hand sewing of some seams where the thread has perished on some very unique old Harley Davidson [...]
