    Discoloration may be improved by Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 system.
    Hydrator-3.3 when dwell sufficiently into the leather structure may cause the dormant dyestuff to redistribute itself throughout it entire surface (the degree of discoloration improvement depends on its quality and amount of dyestuff within). Dryness of the leather structure also contributes to discoloration as the fat and oil contents dries. A replenishing dose of Fatliquor-5.0 will certainly increases its color intensity.

    To let the color works out itself relying on the Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 system will result in a more natural appearance, then to add on a new coloring to this natural ostrich textured appearance.

    We can go from there further to improve the appearance appropriately.

    I have pretty much the exact same issue on my sofa. Glad to know it's possible to correct these issues. I'll be in touch if I decide to go that route. Thanks!
