Leather Dyeing Melbourne

Leather Re Colouring

Reuse & Recycle your Leather Items
Eventually, all leather will get to the point where a new colour finish will be required.

We can re-colour leather goods including domestic furnishings, automotive trim and seating. Whatever your situation, be it commercial or private, Dyeing.com.au can work on your leather goods. Faded, stained & even damaged leather can be recoloured. Our recolouring technique is a protective coating that bonds to the leather surface like a second skin; it flexes and stretches with the leather. Recoloured leather can be cleaned easily, and resists fading, water and wear.

Dyeing your leather furniture is a fraction of the cost of buying new

Leather Sofa Dyeing

Whether you have green, black, white or even PINK leather we can completely change that leather to your preferred colour.

This finish is found on 75% of new leather furniture. The leather with this colour coating is called protected, pigmented, or coated leather. Colours can be custom-mixed to match most leather or paint colours. We can reproduce solid colour, or a richer 2-tone look or maybe you require a distressed or patina effect? All this can be created by the technicians of Dyeing.com.au.

You also get that surface sheen that comes from the clear top coating, and can be satin, glossy or matte. The colour can be touched up or coloured over at any time to maintain a fresh look.

We’re Dyeing to save your Leather in Melbourne

If you are not completely satisfied, we will return at no charge to satisfy you.

The Advantages of Leather Dyeing:

Leather Chair Re-Colouring

After years of colour-matching leather dyes, Dyeing.com.au have built up an extensive knowledge of genuine car leather colours and furniture leather colours.

We come to you on site and colour match your problem areas. We then mix up the correct dye for you and provide you with training & directions insuring you know the correct process. Using one of our Dyeing Kits can save you money on the repair of your leather items and the knowledge that you have learned can be used further down the track.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s pretty much the same as spray painting a car.
We prep the area,  sand, repair, and then prime with 2 coats.
Then we apply 2-4 coats of colour.
Then a top coat of your choice matt, satin gloss or extreme gloss consisting of 2-4 coats.

Yes, it’s permanent. We have to apply several processes to insure this and guarantee our work!

Defiantly not. We trust our process that gives us the best results for your leather

Vinyl and leather can be fixed, repaired, resprayed, and recoloured. 

We ask you to remove the seats if recolouring is required.

We sure can.  Suede fades due to sunlight but we can put the colour back, it’s not an easy process but defiantly achievable. We can dye Suede pants, jackets, shoes, and lounges.

Minor rips, colour tints, cleans and conditions yes we do.

Restoration to the same colour and new colour

Sometimes if the leather cannot be moved we will then make several visits to treat the leather on site

Simply wipe them down with warm water and a small squirt of morning fresh dishwashing liquid every 4-6 months with very light pressure and let dry. Conditioning of the leather is most important and we can provide you with a conditioning treatment.

It lasts as long as your couch will.
You will always get scratches from animals and kids but we provide you with a touch-up colour kit for future use so your leather continues to look great.

Absolutely. Our work is our guarantee.

A pricing guide can be found on our prices page

Yes, we need you to supply a sample, a swatch, a towel, or a piece of paper. 

Photos are not sufficient. 

Yes, you can we can go from white to black, red to white it doesn’t matter as long as it’s pigmented leather and not aniline leather.

Dye is see-through colour and the pigment is a solid colour.

Anilines are dyed and therefore require dye to be added back when fading and damage occurs.

No, it can’t. We can only dye darker.

But we can change an aniline to a pigmented lounge and then you can have any colour you like.

You should allow for approximately 24 hours of dry time These dry times can vary wildly depending on where you live. If you’re in an extremely humid area, drying can take longer.

So happy with it and would 20/10 recommend Melbourne Dyeing to any and every one looking for a quality restoration or recolour!! Thanks so much guys :)
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for you lovely review ..We where so please you choose our small business for your lounge colour change ..
Sharyn picked up and dropped off my hotrod roof for re dying. It's 42 years old, white & severely stained. When Sharyn dropped it back off, it looked brand new, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.Cheers Brett
Response from the owner: Thank you Brett was a great challenge and awesome outcome can’t wait to see it driving around town
Our 11 year old leather lounge suite looks brand new. The service was amazing. Pick up and drop off. A seamless process. Sharyn even gave us some touch up paint if required for the future.And to think we were going to throw out the lounge suite as we thought it was beyond repair. However, upon investigation, the same suite new was around $20k. This prompted seeking other options which is how we came accross Melbourne Dyeing. So happy that we decided to take this option as sustainability is our future.
Response from the owner: Thank you Leanne for your wonderful honest review
Whilst carrying out a colour change to our sitting room we were faced with what to do with our near new swivel Chair. The solution was to die as we could not get a replacement in black.Fantastic job and cost effective as they picked up and delivered plus kept us informed at all times.Would definitely recommend this company.
Response from the owner: Thank you rayGlad we could help with this one No need to buy new when we can recolour

We had an 8 year old leather sofa that was heavily faded and marked up but such good quality that I wouldn't replace it. Sharyn worked dye magic on it and returned the colour to its original in only a week. I'm thrilled with the outcome. My sofa looks gorgeous! Highly recommend.
Response from the owner: Thank you stefanie it was a pleasure restoring your sundaes lounge .. thank iii for your honest review
AMAZING service and quality. It is so rare to find dedicated, patient, solution-oriented and honest people like these. And generous as well as they delivered my sofa covers at home without charging anything. I couldn’t thank so much for such a trivial yet wonderful experience. All the very best wishes to this business and their owners. No wonder there is 5 starts all the way. Respect. Berto

Restored a King Leather lounge with significant animal claw scratches, a burn mark from a hot cup and general wear and tear. Looks and smells brand new! The lounge was saved from the curb side.Customer service was first class, compared to others I contacted first. Picked up and delivered back in just over a week - which was quicker than advised. Definitely recommendWell worth repairing and restoring your leather furniture rather than it go to landfill (as this one may have ended up). Thanks for the ease of which this all happened.

Sharyn and Brandon came to my home last week and collected my damaged chair. I now have it back beautifully restored to its original beauty.I am extremely in awe of their work
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your honest review ..we loved fixing this chair for youTake care
Our old distressed leather lounge suite was torn, bleached and stained. Sharyn’s service was fast and her effort to match the best parts was outstanding. With just one co-worker they picked up and delivered a heavy suite navigating a busy car park and lift. Sharyn was sensitive about the desired effect and the results were amazing. The service was quick with great communication and progress photos along the way.

Response from the owner: Thank you Anza
Emailed Sharyn on short notice to repair a heap of bleach marks on my rental properties carpet. She was very accommodating and promptly came out. Her and Brandon quickly blitzed through the property correcting all the stains. She has a lifetime guarantee on her work and has checked in multiple times to make sure I'm happy with it. I know going forward if the marks return she will be more than willing to come back.
Response from the owner: Thank you Dan really appreciate you taking the time to upload before and after photos .. it was a pleasure working for you

Sharyn came out to colour dye our carpets which I thought would most definitely need replacing. She was amazing and not only did the huge bleach stains disappear I had trouble spotting where they even were, the colour match was perfect. She was professional and efficient in her work and would highly recommend.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your honest review
Our Tessa Leather Chairs (more than 40 years old) recently completed their circuit of family members and were returned to us. Two of the chairs looked a little worse for wear and the third had severely crazed leather, some splits and cat scratches. At best we were hopeful that two chairs could be salvaged. Fortunately I discovered GV Carpet & Leather Restorations.We now have three restored chairs. The restored leather has the appropriate look (a rich black) & feel (soft & supple). Our decision to repair rather than replace has been vindicated. We are very happy with the outcome and wish to congratulate Sharyn and Brandon on a job well done. Their communication at all times was exemplary, as was their enthusiasm for the task at hand.Our kids have now seen the restored chairs and were also very impressed.
Response from the owner: Thank you Robert
