Leather seatUticolor technicians conduct repairs and reconditioning of leather goods including automotive trim and seating, corporate, civic and domestic furnishings.

Whatever your situation, be it commercial or private, Uticolor can complete warranty standard work on your leather goods.

Nicks, cuts and scratch repairs

Wear and tear and small incidental damage can often be repaired on-site and leave very little evidence that a problem existed at all.

In some instances however, the completed leather repairs look and feel like one of the slight blemishes or inconsistencies that occur naturally on animal hides.

Larger rips or perforations can also be repaired, although if these occur within the body contact areas of the item it is recommended that the panel be replaced with new leather.

Leather Dressing

Uticolor is a service orientated organisation, however in response to our customers’ requests for products to maintain their furniture, we do sell our product Leather Dressing.

The application of Leather Dressing, when used in accordance with the directions on the label and in conjunction with a regular cleaning schedule, can significantly extend the lifespan of sealed-type leather items.

It is not suitable for unsealed or ‘nubuk’ style leathers.

Leather Dressing is guaranteed not to permeate or damage any sealed leather that is in good condition.

Available from your local Uticolor technician.

Please note:

  1. Some repairs are possible on garments, handbags and footwear; however this is limited to selected franchisees.
  2. Uticolor can treat unsealed and ‘nubuk’ style leathers provided they are clean and uncontaminated, however by the time the consumer realises that there is a problem with these, it is usually too late to restore the leather without dramatically changing its character.


All repair work is attempted in good faith and in the hope of success. However, Uticolor and its employees and Uticolor franchisees and their employees accept no liability, financial or otherwise, for the success of a repair or treatment, the replacement of the damaged item or goods offered for repair or the condition of returned item if a repair has proven unsuccessful.

Not all items can be guaranteed to be repaired to 100% strength of the original undamaged item. As the repairer is unable to ascertain the circumstances of reinstallation or the stresses of use to which the repaired item may be subjected, the repairer cannot be held liable for the failure of a repaired item, or consequential damages and other effects incurred from the failure of a repair.
