    Default Restoration Hardware - Brompton Leather Couch - Dog Scratches!

    Roger,

    We just spoke on the phone about my Brompton leather Couch (color cocoa) from Restoration hardware.

    My dog severely scratched and dug into one of the cushions and we do not have anyone in town to fix it for us. Please see attached photos to determine which kit would help me fix the leather best.

    I believe they are just surface scratches. I don't see any tearing and the leather still feels soft just not as waxy.

    Thank you,

    Restoration Hardware Wax pull-up leathers derive its color from dyestuff and effect wax that gives the leather a lively distressed look. When this leather is pulled, stretched or scratched, the waxes dissipate characteristically and become lighter in those areas. Sunlight and stretching through high wear areas are two main indications that the infused wax needs replenishing. As is, effect wax behaves just like the primary fatliquor they do diminish through ageing and will need periodic replenishing. Besides contributing to the color intensity, it improves in water shedding effect. Effect wax when applied to the leather penetrates while some transforms into fine cloudy crystal and remains on the surface. The dried surface white powdery deposits are then heat activated and when they melt, they coat the surface with a glossy sheen. In a restorative care cycle a urethane gloss topcoats is applied to restore its original appearance. In every of these kits there is a bottle of EffectWax-8.6 to work in conjunction with other system products in a holistic approach for maintaining or restoring this unique characteristic only to aniline wax pull-up leathers.
