Blue Bolster Seam Repair


This leather car seat bolster seam has been damaged and is in need of a stitching repair

Our technician arrived at the customers car and used a curved needle and cotton to stitch the blue bolster seam back together. However it can often be very difficult to conduct as it is hard to get the needle through the leather. Therefore the technician has to use pliers to assist him. This is known in the trade as slip stitching using a special curved needle. Also allowing us to sew from the outside of the car seat. However this leaves the stitching invisible to the bolster seam as it remains inside.

We also offer a machine stitching service for sofa repairs. This is offered when the seam lines have torn rather than just the stitching coming undone. When we repair it we pull the cover in to re-machine stitch it which makes it look as it would of originally done. When this occurs the technician comes to your house and collects the cover for the sofa upon the first visit. It is then taken away to the workshop for approximately 7-14 working days (dependent on technicians workload at the time) to enable one of our technicians to undertake the service. The cover will then be brought back to your home upon a second visit where they will re attach the cover to your sofa. The sofa repair is then at this point fully completed.

After Completion

Once completed the area needs to be left for at least 1 hour until it is dry enough to touch. This is if the customer wishes to have a closer look at the repair however we do not recommend it. The area should then not be used for approximately 48 hours. This depending on how much colour and filler is applied during the repair and on how much damage there was.

We advise that all leather is cleaned and protected every six months. This allows the leather to stay clean and fresh. The protection cream gives that extra barrier between the wear and tear and the sofa. 

Cleaning Kits

Cleaning kits are always recommended after every repair. This to help enable you to maintain your leather from future damage. Please feel free to ask any questions they are happy to give you help and guidance that you may require.

Yearly maintenance 

We offer a yearly maintenance plan for all customers that have had our full restoration service. This is where you get a reduced fixed price for us to visit every year. This to undertake a full clean and minor repairs for the price of our standard clean package.  If you would like to take advantage of this package please speak to technician while on site. They can get you added to the plan and get your next appointment booked in.
