Espresso Vinyl & Leather Dye


Espresso coffee colored paint restores and conditions vinyl or leather furniture. It won’t peel, crack, flake, or stain clothing and is anti-UV.


Espresso is a dark chocolate color. It is similar to Mahogany, but is distinctly less red when viewed in bright sunlight.


Changing the color of bonded leather or ultraleather is strongly discouraged due to the unstable nature of these materials.

Espresso corrects fading, discoloration, stains, and minor scuffs on leather and vinyl while adding UV protection. Dilute it withClear Prep+Finish to make a glaze for use on aniline or multi-toned leather. Espresso permeates leather and vinyl, behaving more like a stain and less like a paint. Application is easy and versatile with a sponge, brush, or spray gun. It will not rub off on clothing once dried. Do not get wet until fully cured. Each bottle comes with an extra-long stir stick and gloves. Sponge not included.

  1. wonderful product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Feb 2019

    I received my Espresso Rub n Restore product a couple days ago. So far I have changed my outdated green leather chair and love seat into the beautiful espresso color. It looks like totally different furniture! I honestly cannot believe how well your product works! Now off to do the couch! Thank you so much for this wonderful product!

  2. Leather looks like new! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Aug 2018

    I had a tear in my leather couch, in addition to some wear that has caused the original dye to rub off in some spots. This dye was easy to apply and my couch looks like it is new again. Thank you so much!

  3. Delighted with results 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2018

    I love this product! I "risked" it on a $35 pleather chair and absolutely transformed it. Now, I see tons of opportunities and applications for this product. I followed the easy instructions and the results were as claimed - beautiful color, soft and supple surface. Thank you.

  4. everything worked perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2018

    The arm padding on mybBrand new (expensive) poker table came much brighter than I expected. I was really excited only to be disappointed in how bright the vinyl was when I was expecting a more brassy or even browner tones. After researching reupholstering and deciding that was way too much to do right after just getting the table I came across Rub n Restore as an alternative. I contacted them directly through email and showed them my dilemma along with other furniture in the room. They gave me color recommendations and what process to use. I figured what the hell even if wrong I'll dye it all black if I hate it....I get the Espresso and Clear Finisher and planned on the Glazing technique as recommended. I am no handyman and tend to rush everything so I over prepped to make sure I don't ruin the rest of the house in the process...I CANNOT BELIEVE THE RESULTS. Now my table matches the other brown elements in the room and there is still brass notes to it. I would never believe it was same table if I hadn't done it myself and now it even means more to me that I did it myself!!

  5. WOW! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2018

    I'm not a handy guy, but when I got done, my wife walked in and was amazed at the transformation of our two leather chairs. She said they looked brand new. Just done so don't know how long it will last but didn't use much. Highly recommend

  11. Worked great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2018

    Watched video how to apply and it worked great on a synthetic "leather" couch. The finish had worn from a brown to an orange and after several layers, blended in perfectly. Thank you!

  12. impressed! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2018

    I have used your Ivory leather dye and the espresso die and the prep and finish. I am so incredibly impressed with your products! They made it to dingy white couches look practically brand new and repaired ugly scratches That were all over the seat cushions of my dark brown couch and have restored it to mint condition! And lastly I died a chair and ottoman with the espresso to match my couch and they look like they came from the same store! Fantastic product super easy to use and lots of help when I call to figure out how to do these projects. Thank you

  13. Fantastic 5 Star Review

    Easy... color blended extremely well with existing color.

  14. Great product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2018

    I have to admit, I had my doubts. My in-laws had a beautiful leather couch and love seat but unfortunately they were royal blue. My son bought his first house and but wasn't interested in the color choice. It was either try out the Rub n Restore or donate to charity. The product worked wonderfully! I chose the espresso color and it turned out a beautiful dark brown with a little gray tint. Beautiful and you saved my son thousands!

  15. Amazingly Simple 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2018

    I was so apprehensive to start the process of changing my livingroom set from burgundy to espresso. The bottles sat on my counter for more than a week before I convinced my self to do it. Once I started I couldn't believe how easy it was. I kept reading and rereading the brocher to make sure I wasn't missing steps. Nope! It was so easy and the results are amazing. If you can use a sponge you can do this!!

  16. Awesome Coverage - So EASY 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2018

    I bought a used light grey leather couch - got it home and decided it did not look right with our carpet and wall color. Googled how to change color of a leather and found Rub and Restore. It was so simple and easy. 2 coats and I am in love with my new Expresso Brown Leather Couch!

  17. Excellent coverage & color 5 Star Review

    My couches were still in great shape but the leather stain was fading - this gave them new life again!!

  18. New Old Sofa! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2017

    I can’t say enough good about your products. I looked for 3 solid weeks to try and find a new leather couch and just couldn’t stand the thought of giving up our comfortable 25 year old couch. I actually bought 3 couches and cancelled them before they were delivered. There were various reasons why they wouldn’t work for us. I felt like Goldie Locks; this one was too little, this one had bad reviews, this one would stain really easy, and none were as comfortable as our old sofa. Then, I learned of the possibility that our old couch could be restored. I did a long research for the best product and yours seemed like the best solution. Love that it is water based and I didn't have to remove the couch from the room or have harmful vapors in the air.

    I also fixed a few rips in the leather after applying the first coat. And since we had zippered cushions, I was able to add thin pieces of foam that I cut from an old camping mat and tucked them in behind the back pillows and underneath the end reclining seats. This plumped out the seats perfectly.

    When I started out I said out loud “This is a joke, this is ridiculous!” because it just didn’t seem like it was working very well. Then, I remembered that you said to be patient and apply more coats until the color covered well. Then, after about the 3rd coat, I said, “Oh my gosh, this really is working…I can’t believe it!” I applied 5 coats total and one coat of sealer and it looks fantastic. It only took about maybe 10 hours total to do it and now I am one of your new best advocates!

    We just couldn't be happier with our old/new sofa! Thanks so much. You were so helpful too when I had questions. You were right, our friends just can’t believe its our old sofa!

  19. AWESOME 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2017

    I was pretty skeptical about this product on how well it would actually work. But it did AWESOME!!!!! I'm so excited for how good it did. My parents bought these real leather couches 19 years ago. Well I wanted them and wanted to see if I could get them back to their original color. Well it WORKED!!!!! They were almost a red worn out color now they are back to a dark brown and I'm so excited!!

  20. wonderful product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Sep 2017
