    >>> I don’t know the type of leather so I need identification help

    The leather finishes type is either “semi-aniline” or “pigmented”.

    1- Show pictures of the reverse suede side to see its color - if it has the same shade or range as the front, then it is semi-aniline.

    2- Show picture of the unused side to compare the degree of fading.


    >>> as well as the process please.

    The recommend process for this leather is as follows:

    1- Restorative Cleaning with Prep-7.7 > Clean-3.8 > Rinse-3.0 system.
    This restorative cleaning removes most of accumulated soiling and after inspection, will determine any other specialize stain removal will be required example - dye transfer or ink would require other product system.

    2- Degreasing with Degreaser-2.2 > Acidifier-2.0 system.
    Degreasing is highly recommended to body oil, grease and sweat exposed areas if color refinishing is considered.

    3- Leather Rejuvenating with Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Hydrator-3.3 system
    Leather structure thickness rejuvenating reduces unnatural creases and wrinkles and increases leather suppleness.


    >>> This sofa has cat scratches, small holes from claws


    4- Repairs with Stucco-90 > Bond-3D > Micro-54 > MicroTop-54S system.


    >>> I would like to clean and restore.

    5- Color restoration or refinishing with Adhesor-73 > Micro-54 > MicroTop-54S > Protector-B/B+ system.
    Custom color matching from standard color is likely from White, Ochre, Black and Orange and you can see examples from this link:
