FC1 Soft Leather Filler compound repairs scaly, cracking, or thinning leather, as well as holes, cuts, or tears in leather and vinyl. We do not recommend repairing bonded or PU leather due to the unstable nature of these materials!
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!
FC1 Soft Filler is water-based.

The product is very expensive for the amount you receive. Also was not informed that duties and customs are not included when shipped to canada. I purchased the larger container of the compound. There was not enough to repair 4 dining chair seat cushions. All showing wear on the leather. I had enough for only 2 of the seat cushions. I am using a leather paint to change the colour. After painting the chairs the wearing was still noticeable. In the end I went to home depot. Bought paintable caulking, smoothed out the wearing parts painted, sanded them painted again. The chairs look great and only paid $10 for the caulking as opposed to the Rub n Restore order of 1. Scraping tool, 2. Patch kit and 3. Compound. Which cost me $89 with US exchange, then another $37.80 in COD with arrival of the product.
great, easy to use

Great, easy to use and easy instructions.

When it dried the filler compound is peeling making it difficult to sand and finish as directed. There seems to be no way to remove and start over.

Believe I tried 3 different products. They either would not cure or made a total mess. Finally I came upon Rub and Restore's Compound. The product worked like a charm. Thank you!
Dissapointed with results

I did NOT have success with this product. I was very disappointed that it did not achieve the look that the company said it would. :( I have a leather couch with small worn areas with little cracking in the leather.
leather chair fixed

I bought a nice leather recliner that had a rip in one arm. The FC-1 soft filler did a great job of making the tear go away. The best thing about this product is the wealth of online video information about how to use it. First try and it looks quite professional. Thanks!
Repaired my Western Saddle seat
Posted by Rhonda J on 14th Nov 2018
I bought a western saddle and it had damage to the seat. It had two holes in the seat and I could see someone tried to fill them with some kind of filler. I found your YouTube video and watched it several times to see if the Soft Filler might work on a saddle. Well it did and I can say I’m so glad I bought the filler and followed all the directions. It took five applications to get the holes filled. I did let the filler dry in the sun and waited 24hrs to apply the next application. I just need to die that section of the seat to blend in with the saddle. Great product well worth the money.

couldn't be happier

I just wanted to say that the chair repair went very well. You can't even tell unless you get right up on it, and even then, it still looks fine. I couldn't be happier. This saved us hundreds of dollars, and kept really comfortable chairs from ending up in the landfill. Thank you so much for your help and kindness.
Best leather repair I've ever used
Posted by Unknown on 29th Oct 2018
The stuff is the best leather repair I've ever used but I've noticed that instead of using a sponge to smooth it out what's your fingers and smooth it out with your fingers Works twice as good

All Around Great!

I was using the leftovers from a friend who ordered the leather repair products from a company in Canada. I liked the repair compound or filler just fine. It worked well up to the point in my repair that I needed more. But I ran out of repair compound from the other company before my job was done, and I didn't want to wait so long (my friend said it took a couple weeks to get. So I found Rub-n-Restore and ordered the repair compound. Omygosh, I cannot tell you how much better this product is. The product from Canada was only a month old, so it wasn't because it was expiring. The Rub-n-Restore filler was so much easier to to work with and to get to look smooth without sanding so much! And the price through Rub-n-Restore was very affordable. Plus I got the filler in the mail two days after I ordered it! The repair compound was high quality and made my repair look great! And the customer service was excellent! Thank you Rub-n-Restore!
Filler and dye

I have done several chairs and repair projects and am thrilled with the quality and ease of application. I have another chair waiting now to be “changed” and know it will turn out as well as all the others.

I can't believe how easy this product is to work with. My patches in my vinyl seats are barely noticeable!
Filler & Color

Color match was perfect!
Posted by Nancy on 24th Jul 2018
Two applications so far and it's working well. I'm saving my 25-year-old leather couches from the dumpster. They had tears and a lot of cracking. Patched the tears first, then applied this filler, then the leather paint. It's working well, but will take a few more applications to make it completely smooth. All-in-all, I'm very please with the product. For $100 investment, it's worth it to keep the couches for a couple more years.
This Product did what I believed wasnt possible
Posted by Perry Novak on 18th Jun 2018
Easy to use just like repairing drywall. My wife couldn't believe that I could save my Leather Recliner. Very little work and mess. I give it ten thumbs up.
Posted by Maryann on 28th May 2018
Easy to use, great product, quick shipping!
Looks great and I'm hoping it holds up because it sure looks good at the repair site.
Leather car seat refinish.

The FC1 soft leather filler did a great job filling large defects and cracks. Worked well and easy to use. I am very satisfied with the result.
Posted by Barb 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.
