Leather Dye & Paint

Product Selection

Selecting the correct product for your leather coloring situation is an easy 3 step process:

  1. Identify the leather (or vinyl) type from our Leather Identification page. Nubuck and suede have a characteristic nap. If the leather absorbs water readily and darkens, scuffs easily, or has exhibited substantial fading it is likely an aniline finish. This finish is similar to a stain - allowing natural markings and imperfections to show through. But, most leather has a top coat/protected finish. This finish will still show the grain but forms a coating on the leather -- like a paint. Dye colorant is used on top coat finishes and for vinyl. Aniline leathers may be refinished as a top coat finish or aniline.
  2. Select the color from our wide array of stock colors in our online color charts. Look up the color as appropriate in the furniture or auto color charts as referenced below.
  3. Select the product that matches your need. We suggest our popular Leather Recoloring Kit, it's the quick and easy way to get everything you need. If you still have questions on how to handle your particular problem, we have helpful sections in the online leather manual on Leather Dyeing.
