Leather Filler and Vinyl Repair Compound


FC1 Soft Leather Filler compound repairs scaly, cracking, or thinning leather, as well as holes, cuts, or tears in leather and vinyl.

Our 1 oz. container is generally enough to repair a 1 in. x 1 ft. hole that requires a few layers of fill plus a layer of texturizing. Or it can do two thin coats on a 2 ft. x 2 ft. section of scaly, rough leather. Opt for the 2 oz. size for larger areas of damage.

Subpatch Kit is sold separately and is required if your leather is torn, and the substrate is exposed!

Repair instructions and gloves included. Get the filler plus application tools and sandpaper in our Leather Filler Kit

FC1 Soft Filler is non-toxic and water-based.

  1. Works Fine 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2018

    I used FC1 Soft Leather Filler to fill in a cracked area on the side of the chair. The area was roughly 3 x 2 inches and had several thin surface cracks which had not went all the way through to the base layer. I worked the filler into the cracks, 4 thin coats, and then applied the dye. I can no longer see the cracks and the area feels more supple, not brittle anymore.

  2. I would order again! 5 Star Review

    I bought this product to repair a hole on a vintage vinyl ottoman. It was very easy to work with and it did exactly what it said it would do. I saved a ton of money doing it myself, fantastic product!

  3. WORKS REALLY WELL 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jan 2018

    I had tried another product which had not worked very well. I then did some more research and found this filler and used it to repair a faux leather sectional. It worked as described and I am extremely pleased with the results. It is easy to use and dries to a flexible finish. I used a leather vinyl paint after the repair and it has blended in to give an exact match. I would certainly use this again.

  5. two thumbs up 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Oct 2017

    I applied several very thin layers to the mesh substrate where the vinyl had cracked and flaked off on a car seat and made sure there was good adhesion with the remaining vinyl fragments. I only removed a few small pieces that were peeling away. I allowed each layer to dry and very lightly scuffed the final coat with 600 to ensure it was smooth.  While I was tempted to try and texture the finish I was satisfied with the way it turned out and made a custom color dye to reasonably match the surrounding seat material.
    I’m very pleased with the way it turned out and hope that the repair holds up to the wear it’s going to see. Thanks again for your advice and videos.

  7. Best I've found 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2017

    I've tried some other brands, but love this filler the best! Easy to use and dries quickly.

  8. The best product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th May 2017

    I tried other products from different companies before I found Rub n Restore. They didn't come with a filler compound which is just one of the reasons why they didn't work. Can't say enough about this filler compound. Filled in the hole so I was able to dye and save a very expensive leather couch.

  9. Such a large hole to fill 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2017

    I had a 4 inch hole in my couch thanks to my dog and didn't want to replace the $900 piece. Your product filled the hole, stain was perfect. I had trouble smoothing the filling but no one notices it but me.

  10. Filler Use 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2017

    Easy to use. Only negative is that it is hard to get a smooth finish.

  12. Not too happy 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2017

    It took very long to dry. When it was finally dry, it was tacky to the touch and didn't sand well. I was not very happy with the results

  13. Great Material! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2016

    I used 2oz this product to fill large wholes and to texture a 3 piece set. It looks and feels great. Nobody can believe how great the couches and chair turned out. I'm very happy and would recommend this product.

  14. worked great! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2016

    Took a chance and ordered this to try to fix a peeling bonded leather sofa. I had 2 cushions that had extensive peeling on the front half of them. Ordered 2, 1 oz jars. Glad I did, as I needed most of that! Skimmed the surface with this, and re-did parts as needed. It dried pliable and filled in cracks. Just had a problem after it dried, as it says to lightly sand if needed, but the marks didn't sand out. Recommend reallllly making sure you have a smooth surface after your application. So happy with this product!

  15. Wow and thanks 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2016

    Hi Lesandre and CC:

    Got the 'slate' and 'stone' dyes (along with the patching compound) yesterday.

    2 words: 'WOW' and 'THANKS'. Both the sofa and chair (approx. 15 years old) literally look brand new. Unfortunately, I didn't take 'before' pictures, but the transformations are truly incredible. You're selling a phenomenal product (but you already knew that)!!!

  16. Success! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2016

    I love your products! After finding you on youtube and watching several videos multiple times, I ordered the supplies I needed to repair our torn couch. This was my first attempt ever at leather repair. I am very pleased with the results! I used espresso. Thanks!
