Leather Sofa Restoration - Advice Needed

7 months ago
last modified: 7 months ago

Hi,I have two leather sofas that require restoration & tlc. My sister was getting rid of them and I couldn't resist having a go at restoring them. The problem is I'm not quite sure how to fix them. The leather is patchy. In some its light brown and other places are dark chocolate colour (large patch area's of both colours). When I used leather cleaner, the lighter brown patches peel to reveal the darker colour. The peel is sort of like eraser shavings. Can anyone tell me why this is happening? And how do I get them back to one shade (without damaging them)? It's almost like a film coating peeling off, but it's painstaking slow peeling. If anyone can help, it's would be much appreciated. Thanks
