Leather Repair Training - Train with experts in the business


Why do a training?

The use of leather in the automotive & furniture industries has grown consistently over the last 2 decades. A third of all furniture suites sold in Europe are made of leather. A huge percentage of cars have leather seats. Most customers expect to have leather seats in their cars today. While leather is a durable material, scratches, stains, scuffs and damages are all too common. The market for leather repair, specialist stain removal, and cleaning is huge and there is a significant lack of knowledgeable and skilled professionals in the trade.
