There’s a great little product on the market for leather repairs that I wanted to share with you, as you may not have come across it before. I hadn’t until recently, when I was contacted by the company ‘Masta Plasta’ and asked if I’d like to try out their self-adhesive patches. They offer a new innovative way to repair leather sofas, chairs or garden furniture without the hassle of using tools, solutions or any other apparatus. I was quite intrigued as it sounded like something that we could definitely use at home.
When we used to have a pet hamster, we put her cage a little too close to the suite one time and she unfortunately had a good old nibble through the bars on one corner of the leather, as you can see:
I’ll be honest, I was a bit skeptical about how successful the repair would be, with the damage being right on the corner and quite noticeable anyway – would a patch repair simply draw more attention to it, especially if the colour didn’t quite match?
Well I was pleasantly surprised when our samples arrived. The colour was pretty much perfect for our dark espresso coloured leather. This was the larger patch:
But the small one was the perfect size and it was easy to apply, even on the corner of the chair, so I imagine a tear or rip along a flat surface would be an even simpler leather repair.
Here is the result after, it looks so much tidier and from further away you don’t even notice it, whereas before I felt the damage drew your eye.
And this handy repair product can be used on other leather items, such as bags – you can go plain or have an embossed design like this to make a feature of it!
I really like the crown design, too:
Plus, the patches come in a wide choice of colours so it is a great, cost effective solution to fix leather or even faux leather. Do check out the Masta Plasta website for more info.
Thanks to Masta Plasta for sending a couple of free samples for me to try, I love your great, first-aid for furniture!
