- Custom Colors
Match the leather color of your car, man cave or furniture!
Send us a sample of your leather color, and we will match it (excluding metallics or fluorescents)! Custom Colors cost a little more but save time and labor (unless you're color-changing a piece). Turn-around time is swift -- usually 24-48 hours after receipt of your sample.

We mix a small amount of dye and test it on your original sample, examining it under sunlight and indoors. We adjust the color accordingly and re-examine until we are content with the formula. This is a painstaking process done with a professional eye. No computer can read the color and write a formula as accurately and certainly not without human refinement (this is especially true with base-and-print or multi-toned samples). We then expand the formula to the desired volume. This final color is tested once more on the original sample and adjusted if necessary. We then use the Custom Color to dye a piece of scrap leather, half of which we send to you, and the other half we retain on file with the original sample in the event of a future re-order.
We ask that a sample be at least 3" x 1" in size, though we have worked with smaller.
A sample can be any of the following:
- Swatch of the original leather or vinyl (found underneath cushions, along inseams, or stapled to the frame)
- Cushion case
- Paint chip from a hardware store
- Fuse panel or headrest from a vehicle (wrap carefully to protect from a box cutter)
- Piece of drapery or flatware
Photographs of your pieces are helpful in determining quantity of dye needed, but we cannot mix a color to a photograph.
