Leather tear or rip

Obtain a piece of leather and trim it slightly larger than the tear, apply a suitable adhesive allowing it to become ‘tacky’. Place this sub-patch under the leather and allow to fully dry. If necessary use filler to level the surface; use several light coats of filler and allow to dry between coats.

You can use a hair dryer to assist in drying. Remember to hold hair dry at a 25 degree angle. After the leather repair is level, apply a colour dye to match if required
