Default Can small tear in leather seats be fixed

Title says it all. It is about 2 inches long on the back of the seat. Not really visible just don't want it to get larger. Any interior experts?

after seeing them fix my leather couch the answer is YES.....not sure what it costs since it was a warranty repair but the guy i used was from the Ethan Allen store and he was a subcontractor.....you can't see the repair...

This is a timely thread. I have a tear in the driver's side seat, about two inches, and was curious if it could be fixed. Well, of course, it could be fixed but there is fixed and, then, there is really fixed! I'm going to try out this suggestion. Thanks!

Default Can be fixed!!!

I bought c5 seats for my vette, and the drivers side had a tear were the fiber glass, at least i think thats what it is, pushed through the leather. Tear was about 5-6 inches long, hired a professional to fix it for 80 bucks. Looks brand new. perfect.

Leather won't really rip more like vinyl or cloth. If it does keep ripping the leather is rotted and its shot anyway.
