    Posted Oct 16th, 2018 By in Rich's Blog, Uncategorized With | No Comments This Exploding English Leather Repair Brand Could Take Over The World Of Leather Care

    An active brand with a with an almost cult like following in England, is planning a massive global expansion. Richard Hutchins is planning its size in England, before going fully global with offices in the USA.

    Hutchins told us that the company has the second largest range of leather care and repair products in the world and intends to make this known very quickly globally.

    According to financials for the company they reported an increase in turnover by 49.765% in 2012 and the 2013 figures look to show another huge growth pattern of around 53% increase.

    Hutchins pictured here at the head office of the Leather Repair Company

    Hutchins is Leather Repair Company’s chief executive and the face of the company. Hutchins saying is “I Dream About My Work Then I Restore My Dreams”

    The company sells all forms of leather care and repair products, to maintain and repair leather and vinyl items, like car interiors, boats, planes, yachts, furniture, jackets, shoes and handbags. At an average price of £15

    ” we sell three times more than many of our competitors and we been around longer than any other company today. We are a sleeping giant tucked away on the coast in Yorkshire, England and we weren’t shouting it to the world. But this is all about to change.”

    He founded the company 30 years ago, when he was working for a company who owned a private collection of 150 classic cars, working on the cars all the time, friends and family members soon started to ask Hutchins if he could do work for them maintaining leather furniture, cars and jackets and he soon decided start his own brand Leather Repair Company offering leather repairs to customers, that’s when Leather Repair Company the brand was born.

    Hutchins still considers himself as a products developer that’s why the company still offers many new products per quarter.

    ” The brand is my life and everything about its quality and the brands image is just me, Hutchins quietly mummers”

    Leather Repair Company’s biggest presence is in England where it has three factory sites, two in Yorkshire and one in Northumberland.

    In the USA, the Leather Repair Company is just about to open its first outlet in Texas, making the brand the largest of its kind in the world, Leather Repair Company is then looking to open more sites in Europe, once the US, is established over the next 24 months.

    Leather Repair company continues it’s expansion in England, with its accreditation of the IMI Awards and the VBRA, the only company in  England in leather repairs to be approved as an official training centre for leather repairs.

  • Steam Cleaning Leather

    Steam Cleaning Leather !!!!!!

    We have been asked a few times about this and if its safe, we have always said we have never done it so I can’t say for sure,

    So decided to carry out some tests to give you some feedback on the pros and cons.

    But we have been doing some very extensive testing on leather and its a killer.

    We have carried out tests on many different types and styles.

    Car interiors should not be cleaned in this way at all Detailers & Valeters Leather

    Couches should not be cleaned in this way for all your Cleaners


    Some Of The Results We Found Were As Follows

    1/ It added too much moisture into the leather causing it to swell

    2/ When dried out it went hard

    3/ Caused damage to the painted surface, breaking down the surface top coat colour

    4/ Caused mold and bacteria to grow within the leather as its traps moisture

    5/ Bacteria grows and causes a bad odour and smell.

    You will find using a professional cleaner like our Premium Leather Cleaner and our Premium Foam Cleaner well be far more beneficial than anything else on the market. Its imperative you use the correct [products on leather, steam cleaning is not the way forward at all.

    We found after doing a great deal of testing that it even took off the coloured surface on some car interiors leather and some couches got so badly damaged you would not believe your eyes. If you are looking for advice on leather care and cleaning please do get in touch and share this post as much as you can as a lot of people are going to get big problems using a steam cleaner on leather.

    If you want to know the ins and outs of leather care and cleaning please contact us or come on one of our free leather repair open days. ‪

    Care and Repair

    Leather Repair Company Training Centre Hull

    A relentless dedication to detail keeps the Leather Repair Companies Richard Hutchins motivated in the search for the perfect leather finish.

    On entering Leather Repair Companies Hull training and repair centre is an unusual experience if you’re accustomed to the usual smells from workshops, with the ambience of chemicals, oils and solvents around you, along with other potent harsh chemicals.

    Instead the air is filled with the beautiful aroma and scents of leather and a fresh clean smell of natural cleaning solutions used in the leather cleaning industry.  This is all made up from the beautiful smells and scents of the Leather Repair Companies range of cleaning and care products all hand crafted from its head office a little further down the road to the wonderful town of Withernsea on the coast.

    All the products are hand crafted to the finest detail and ingredients by Richard Hutchins himself to ensure the quality is the finest possible on the market.

    Richard Hutchins philosophy is rather different to that of a bob-a-job boy doing some work for a week to earn some money for sweets, with his dirty rags and harsh solvent chemicals. Special leather requires special care and expert assessment and attention says Richard Hutchins. If you’re leather is overdue a clean and brush-up then companies like the Leather Repair Company are only too happy to help.

    “We’re not a cleaning company” insists Richard as he outlines the Leather Repair Company raison d’être. “We are in the business of the finest care and protection, rather than a quick wipe over with a wet damp rag in the way most normal people would. We take note of every detail and remove all the blemishes, scratches and markings and take the items apart to fully clean them and restore them to enable professional cleaning to take place behind in the areas you can’t even see, generally trying to make it as good as,  if not better than new. We are here to train people how to care and restore leather the experts way and we are responsible for so many companies around the world today who have been to us for training courses”

    Attention To Detail

    Depending on your bespoke requirements, the exhaustive makeover routine comprises of removing items, like linings from jackets and handbags to ensure a deep clean and condition is carried out to the finest detail, All items that come in for cleaning undergo a painstaking cleaning system, that enables them to deliver to you only the highest service possible, not matched by any other. All leather items are painstakingly repaired and restored using the extensive range of Leather Repair Company products and systems. It’s a time consuming process and one that requires considerable expenditure as Richard freely admits. “It can be expensive but you get what you pay for,” he argues, “and afterwards there’s minimal time needed to keep your leather items looking its finest and maintained. Saving owners a great deal of time and effort and you’re getting expert advice and a professional service that can resolve many issues that inexperienced hands could actually make worse. The protection that’s applied to your leather items will work for a very long time.

    Richard’s clients are a diverse bunch of folks, from all countries around the world, ranging from private individuals, to restoration companies, through to company owners, designers and TV celebrities. Keeping clients up to date with the progress of all works is an important part of Richard’s success in the leather industry, one he prides himself on. Clients can request progress reports as often as they wish, something Richard is more than willing to undertake, Richard states, “keeping clients in the know on items is extremely important, when considering some items have huge sentimental value as well as very high monetary values, we’re in constant contact with clients to make them feel happy and secure about entrusting such precious items with me,” says Richard, “We send as much information as we can as often as we can”

    The Leather Repair Company doesn’t just clean and repair cars leather interiors, we handle an amazing array of objects, designer clothing, handbags, furniture, desks, music cases, golf bags, phone cases, and even famous tour busses,  yachts and helicopters. Richard’s a huge fan of leather it all began when he was a wee lad of just 14 after going to the USA and meeting some people who introduced him to the world of classic cars and the Harrah’s museum.

    On taking a look around the training centre and studios I noticed some amazing artwork sketched onto leather, upon asking Richard what this was, I was blown away, Richard states, “This is a new company I have started called Sketched Leather, this is art on leather, we can within reason hand craft any design on leather for clients around the world, this was born out of a passion to excel in every way possible, by offering clients something very different and very unique that no other offers,” says Richard. “Can you imagine the looks you’ll get with a finely crafted zip hand drawn on the back of a leather jacket with an amazing sun set coming out of the zip or a beautiful paradise island.”

      We have tested this and re tested this glue and even without a sub patch its almost impossible to rip open a tear again after being used without a backing sub patch, when a sub patch is applied the bond it provide is amazing.
