Leather upholstery repairs in Kilmarnock - the ultimate in 'mend and make do'!
In recent years, there has been a change in how we view our items and the possessions we own; the 'mend and make do' mentality that was so very prevalent during the early 20th Century seems to be back and, leather upholstery repairs, close to your Kilmarnock home could be the ultimate in this new drive to repair, not throw away.
Landfills are nearly full
We became a consumer society without really noticing. We bought an item and, if it broke down, rather than repairing it, we were often told that it was 'cheaper to buy new'. Without questioning this decision, we tottered off to the shops, looking to buy the next big thing…
But, slowly the attitude began to change; recycling and upcycling have become far more common. And why not? We cannot keep throwing items away, especially when you consider the tons of rubbish thrown in to landfill every year - and a lot of it could be re-used.
Repair not buy new
Some of the items we invest in, cost us a lot of money in the first place. Did you stare longingly at the leather upholstered sofa and matching arm chair, only to find that, at great expense that you bought it?
The leather upholstered dining chairs were a delightful purchase and match the interior décor of your home so well… so why would you throw them away, when you now know that they could be economically restored to 'like new', with leather upholstery repairs close to your Kilmarnock home?
What can be repaired?
You will be amazed at what can be repaired, making them look like new once again:
- Holes - holes can be worn into any kind of material, and is usually the result of constant use on one area; people assume that worn fabric cannot be repaired but we have a range of skills that can deal with this kind of issue
- Rips and tears - these are common in many leather upholstered items that we repair; again, many people assume that once this has happened the whole item is effectively defunct. Repair can happen…
- Scuffs - like other materials with a high polish or glossy finish, scuffs can be an annoying blot on the item; they can be dealt with quickly and easily
- Stains - even though leather can be cleaned easily with a quick wipe, some liquids and foods, as well as other items such as felt tips etc., can stain the material; again, with clever use of chemicals, applied with skill, stains can be lifted out of the fabric
Leather upholstery repairs close to your Kilmarnock home are the epitome of ensuring that items that are still useful and functional, can still be beautiful too.
