Post Leather sofa colour change

Does anyone know of a shop/company that can dye leather furniture as we would like to change the colour of our existing sofa.
The island was once full of leather shops but sadly they have gone over the years and we cannot find anyone who can help.
Thanks...

I didn't know this was even possible but I do know that to reupholster a sofa is as much as buying a new one. We looked into this recently and realised that it's not cost effective. I'm no expert obviously, but unless your existing sofa is in tip top condition ..springs etc.. it may be better/ cheaper to buy a new one in the colour you want rather than risk having it dyed.

There is a company in the UK called Gliptone that supplies the dyes and conditioners to re-colour and feed leather. It is good stuff and I have used in on my classic cars. However, it is incredibly labour intensive, and involves stripping the old colour off, feeding the leather and repainting it.
The process relies on the leather being good and I cannot imagine it being worthwhile on a sofa.

Inca is obviously the place to go for leather and I would suggest that a new sofa is probably cheaper than the labour involved in restoring old hides.

Sorry, no one does or has this service here.

There used to be somebody who dyed vinyl furniture, but it was expensive and didnīt last.

Best, and cheaper, to buy new.
