I didn't actually use the repair kit, but I'd like to leave a review anyway because I really appreciated all of the information that Magic Mender provided about the realities of bonded and bi-cast leather. I read their information page, and thought that the chairs that I'd picked up on craigslist were good candidates for the kit, but by the time the kid arrived I could see that the bi-cast leather was just too far gone to be repaired. Luckily they have a good return policy and I was able to turn it around within a day for a refund. I'll end up reupholstering the chairs completely with a vinyl fabric, but if they ever get damaged or if any other leather or vinyl upholstery I have needs mending I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this product again.
I have used Magic Mender's products twice now, both times for leather car seat repair. The first time, couple of years ago, I purchased the Complete Repair Kit as I had some leather cracks to be repaired. The repair went really well and the Color Flex Finish matched the color really well. I really appreciated supplied with the product clear repair procedures and prompt response from Magic Mender's representative who called me when I adressed questions. For another car seat repair this year I used only the Color Flex Finish that I have selected based on the listed car internal color and matched it with the Auto color charts table on Magic Mender's website. It was a Light Grey color, and as with all light colors, I knew the matching could be a problem. This time the supplied Color Flex Light Grey finish had a bit blue shade to otherwise light grey color. After some consideration I have decided to apply the color using the technique shared by Magic Mender's representative. Although the color matching was not perfect, in general I was satisfied with repair. I want specifically praise Magic Mender's responsiveness and their attitude to customer questions.
This worked great. We had a rather large rip in the seat of a leather couch. The couch is on the older side, the leather is weak, and one of our dogs tore it with a claw. I followed the instructions to the letter and the repair turned out beautifully. I'm really happy with the results and would recommend to anyone. Thank you!
I was really skeptical of this product. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was and how great the finished product looks! I thought I'd have to buy new stools for my kitchen and spend over $1,000 on the stools....but with this product/kit ($60) I was able to fix the cracks and chunks of vinyl that was missing and stools look great!
Wow! Easy to use with everything needed in the kit. Tried it on a section of a white Naugahyde couch the cat scratched. Am now ordering more to do a more complete job and tackle the matching very large chair. Thank you.
Fantastic results!!! 15-year old piece was perforated by 3 kittens who used it a a scratching post. Looks and feels brand new. I got similar great results on three companion pieces as well. Thank you, MM!!!
