Jon, has repaired two torn leather sofa seat cushion. I didn't think they were repairable but Jon was confident he could repair them. What I wasn't expecting was when he brought them back the cushion looked brand new. He had replaced the torn cushions with new Italian leather and match the colour exactly.

Jon was brilliant, honest and went out of his way to help. I went to him about a leather bag I had damaged with an oil diffuser see pics. He explained the complexities of drawing out the oil and how timely this would be but went above and beyond to help me solve the issue. The results are amazing as you can see. The bag was sticky from the oil and completely unusable prior and Jon has given it a new lease of life! Thank you very much

We cannot praise Jon highly enough. He did a fantastic job on our sofa. It was throughly faded, dirty in places and two cushions, the arm and their covers needed replacing. A few day later the entire job was complete, and it’s as good as new for a fraction of the price. Jon respected our property, he worked hard and was friendly and polite. Graham and Julie Pinder

I thought our sofas were beyond repair, but Jon did such an amazing job that you wouldn’t know they’d even been repaired. Very fast turnaround too, would definitely recommend Jon as we were very happy.

I am so pleased I booked Jon to fix my leather sofa. He has done an amazing job! He fixed a whole leather seat panel that was completely torn and sewed up another seat that needed repairing. I was super impressed how quickly he done the job as it was a big job to complete. The end product was fantastic. I highly recommend Jon, a nice guy, gets the job done quickly and end results are fab! Thanks Jon!

Really pleased with the work Jon did with our old Chesterfield single seat. We bought it (secondhand) more than 20 years ago and haven't really looked after it ! letting the cats sleep on it and scratch it, leaving it in the conservatory where the sun got to it, you could tell it was in poor shape. We had the lounge redecorated very recently and wanted to bring the chair back in and use it as it is a good quality seat but there was no way that we could have done this in it's old 'state'. Jon has done a great job of turning into what looks like a brand new 'antique' (it is like someone bought it 150 years ago and put it in vac pac storage and we took it out over the weekend). We were told we could have it one of several colours but decided to leave it the same colour as it was originally (green) and we are glad we did, it looks perfect back in the living room and would very happily use Jon again for just this sort of thing. He worked tidily and efficiently and the cost was as per his estimate. Cheers Jon - Steve and Jane - Westcliff - attached are a before and after picture of the chair
