Customized Vinyl & Leather Dye
Our custom matched conditioning dye will recolor or restore vinyl or leather. It's anti-UV and will never flake, peel, crack, or stain clothing.
Send a sample, and we will formulate a leather dye to match your auto interior, beloved chair, team colors, or new interior decor. This process incurs a $55 matching fee (in addition to the cost of an 8 or 16 oz. bottle) but can save time and labor.
Please note: most samples that we receive are base-and-print or multi-toned. We mix a single color that your eye reads as a match from a short distance. You can choose to work with a single color or two, but replicating the appearance of the original material is up to you. Swatches often do not resemble their faded counterparts. Therefore a Custom Color also won’t match, and you may have to dye the entire piece. In this instance, you may prefer going with a less expensive stock option.
CC or Lesandre personally mix each Custom Color, evaluating it in indoor and outdoor settings. Please click here to learn more about the process. Turnover time is fast, usually within 48 hours of payment. We keep the formula on file and can always make another batch upon request for a $30 re-mix fee.
The customized leather dye is water-based. It conditions leather or vinyl while depositing color. Custom Colors can be applied with a sponge, brush, or spray gun. The product behaves like stain; it will not rub off on clothing and will never peel or crack.
Please send a 3" x 1" sample of any of the following:
- Swatch of leather or vinyl
- Paint chip
- Trim panel or headrest from a car
- Even fabric or flatware
Photographs are helpful in determining quantity of dye needed, but we cannot mix a color to a photograph.
Please mail the sample along with your telephone number, billing, shipping, and email addresses to:

unbeliveable great the answer

My leather couch set have had cat scratches all over them. I looked and looked for something to repair them. Then I found Rub n Restore, the couches look like new. I did the treatment some time ago and it is wearing great
Worked better than expected!

Just purchased a Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland but the front passenger seat was discolored. It would have been $700 to replace the seat and did not want a cheap looking cover. Sent a sample color to Rub & Restore. Applied to the seat, and it looks BRAND NEW! Only one little application removed the stains and the seat looks great. Did not expect it to work so well. Well beyond my expectation and the color match is incredible. Great savings and the Jeep now looks excellent. Can you tell how happy I am!?

Thank you for a wonderful product. Your color match was right on.
Why did I take so long to repair.

This product is unbeliveable. I had my sons cat scratches on my living room leather set for 19 years. They looked horrible. To replace the couches it would have cost me over $5000.00. I stumbled over this product on the net. Great service, Great communications. The furniture looks NEW. It took me an afternoon to do both a 9 ft couch and a 6 ft couch.

With the use of alchohol to prep and then a sponge, we were able to return our beat-on, stained and heavily used analine leather couch to a like brand new condition in less than a morning. We needed a custom color and the match was dead on perfect. If anyone is thinking about trying this product, you should buy it and try it. We continue to shake our heads in disbelief every time we look at the couch thinking there is no way it is the same couch.
Hit it on the nail! Perfect!

This is a very good product, the results are perfect.
Poor product but refunded
Posted by Alexey on 21st Dec 2016
After many times of trying cleaning and applying dye that I bought, I still have an issue with coloring. It does not bond into the vinyl or leather deep enough it looks to me that it is just a top, thin layer of dye that could be erased easily with cloth and a little bit of water. I know that you will be saying that never happened before it is just I do something wrong, but believe me I went 100 times completely through the website and the notes. It does not work as described. I am very disappointed of the poor product, but the company did refund me.

We thought that our couch was ruined and then I came across the Rub n Restore website. We sent in a swatch and ordered a custom match and it was perfect! I can't say enough about the products and the staff. So extremely helpful and the shipping was very fast!!

RubNRestore's color matching services are outstanding thanks to the tireless efforts of CC and Lesandra. The before and after photos tell you everything you need to know. My sofa looks great. In fact, it looks brand new. Thank you RubNRestore!!!
Very positive experience!

This product did an amazing job on my sectional. I was scared to use it because our couch is very high end and was concerned the colors would not match etc. My husband had spilt salad with dressing not once but twice. So big oil stains darkened two areas. Local companies said there was nothing that would get it out. This product has made my couch look new again. The stains are gone. Really thrilled. It was easy to use, custom color 100% perfect and helpful owners.

I want to thank you again for solving the biggest issue I had with the interior in our new restaurant. You really were my savior on this and I can't thank you enough! The booths "V's" had been stark white and you matched them perfectly to the ivory we needed.

The color resulted exactly what we were looking for. Excellent results!
Better than New

Just finished doing the upholstery on my 2003 Searay. I was a little apprehensious about doing it, but I could not be happier. They supplied me with Color # 9139 (re-mix from color on file) and Clear coat which I applied with a damp pponge. I worked in the color evenly and after drying, applied the Clear Coat Sealer. I bought this boat new and the finished product is better than when I bought this soat. I have been Showing it around the marina here and people are amazed. Thank you again for all your help answering all my questions. I hope to send you some business in the future.

We have 3 cats that have done a number on our 3 leather pieces in the living room and the custom color we chose was a very close match to the original color. I was impressed by the coverage provided by the dye.
Easy to use and works great

Great product! Love it!

I used the customized "Creamy Tomato" this weekend, and it is a perfect match! The couch and loveseat look 100% better. I need to learn to smooth some of the areas a little better with the filler but even so I am happy with the result. A big improvement. *:) happy
second time user
Posted by Frank Stone on 12th Aug 2016
This is the second time I have used a custom color. It does an amazing job of making tired old cracked leather look great. Added some clear conditioner to the color to give it some shine and it worked perfectly. I have never seen a product for leather renew that worked this well. Highly recommend.
Looks like brand new
Posted by Kenneth Rower on 20th Jul 2016
There was light spots in a few places from my constant moving around on this loveseat & we had tried other dyes which either wore off or left darker spots where we covered the light spots. This is part of a three piece couch set which is no longer made & would have had to be replaced entirely. Now the entire set looks like the day it was delivered.
NOT QUITE NEW BUT ALMOST!

MY 2011 BUICK ENCLAVE HAD THE DRIVERS SIDE SEAT LOOKING BAD. I FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS AND IT BROUGHT IT BACK TO ALMOST UNNOTICEABLY NEW CONDITION. THE COLOR WAS SO CLOSE THAT AFTER APPLICATION YOU COULDN'T TELL ANYTHING WAS DIFFERENT FROM THE PASSENGER SEAT. GREAT STUFF!
