Buying Leather Dye In Canada And The United States

Apr 3, 2008
Leather is a fabric that can last for generations. It is extremely durable and, as long as it is properly cared for, can withstand extreme conditions. Leather couches and jackets are extremely popular to purchase, but after 10 or 15 years, even the nicest of leather items can look a little downtrodden and worn.

Dyeing leather is easy, and can bring forth a new lease in your leather's life, making an old leather couch or jacket look brand new. There are a few tricks to go about purchasing leather dye price-wise; for instance, Canadian prices are almost always lower than American prices, so if it's not detrimental to you financially to check both sides of the border before you make your purchase, do so.

In choosing the right dye, take into consideration the fact that some leather dyes might not work with your brand of leather. Furthermore, if you're looking for a particular type of dye, bear in mind that Canada dyes may be slightly different in color. As such, make sure that, if you're purchasing Canadian dyes, it matches on your leather coach or jacket; those dollars you've saved going over the border may get wasted by choosing the wrong dye.

If you decide to purchase your leather dye in Canada, and live near the border, you might want to drive over and take some samples home. If you are trying to go for a darker color than your leather currently is, you will want to make sure to gradually darken the fabric. Instead of dying white instantly to black, first dye it green, than blue, and finally black.

Just to give you a better idea, imagine you have a white couch, and you want to dye it black. Start with a color darker than white, like say green, afterwards, dark blue, then black. Why must you apply a topcoat of dye on your coach, you may ask? Well, if you dyed the white couch black, you may have ended up with a grayish-looking couch. By dyeing it one shade darker at a time, you'll end up with a richer, smoother color that you so desire. By following these steps, your old leather will look awesome and last for even more generations to come.
