Any hole or tear where the substrate is exposed requires a subpatch prior to filling. We like denim mending fabric, because it is thin and strong.
Use a flexible fabric glue (NOT super glue) to adhere the patch to your leather or vinyl. We like 3M Plastic Emblem & Trim Adhesive. This adhesive and denim patches are available together in our subpatch kit.
Larger holes and tears require a flexible repair medium. We walk you through the subpatch process, filling, texturizing, and dyeing. Suitable for repairing leather and vinyl.
