This leather sofa had 3 burst seams, our leather repairs technician conducted burst seam repairs.
Above are pictures of the 3 burst seams. In order to repair the technician uses a curved needle and extra strong cotton. The cotton is doubled up and tied at the bottom with 3 knots. Now the technician cuts off the remainder of the cotton following the knot. After this has been done the technician uses the holes already in the leather to re-stitch the burst seam. Once that burst seam has been stitched the technician ties off the seam. Similarly this is done with three knots. Then the remainder of the cotton is cut off following the knot once again.
