    Picture #2-2 piping damages can see that its aniline dye through; and this is also probably from lambskin.

    Leather structural strengthening is done with Impregnator-26 for beneath surface.

    Bonding surface repair is done with Bond-3D.

    However, these structural repairs may have a darkening effect, especially the surface repair and need a testing on hidden area to decide its feasibility.

    Option is to dye to a deeper shade to camouflage the darkening effect of the repair.

    If deeper shade is a concern, then the repairs is only limited to using Topcoat-79G.

    One reason for such abrasion wear is that the leather structure is losing its strength from diminishing original fatliquor. After fatliquor replenishing the leather will be less prone to abrasion. Another reason is the surface looses the buttery feel that lubricates against rub-resistant; that will improve with routine Protection-B+.

    So this restoration process should be in this sequence of options:

    Prep-4.4 > Cleaner-3.8 > Rinse-3.0 > Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Impregnator-26 > Bond-3D + Bond-7A > Dye-21 > Topcoat-79G > Protection-B+

    Impregnator-26 for worn repairs is found in this Kit A8; with Bond-3D and Bond-7A as add-on.
