Restoring Red Suede Sweater Jacket
Here is another example of a suede jacket that had been cleaning improperly by another cleaner and was brought to me to restore. Again notice the faded out color and if you could feel it, it is stiff and hard to the touch.
Never accept this kind of work. If this is the best they can do, they are not a leather and suede specialist. Leather and suede have to be cleaned in solutions that remove the soil but replace the natural oils and finish. If the color is lightened after cleaning, then redyeing is done to restore the color.
