Leather Connolising is a term coined for the recolouring of leather
The Connolly Tannery (now no longer in existence) was next door to the Rolls Royce factory and they built up a reputation based on the fact that they supplied Rolls Royce – many other tanneries also supplied RR including Bridge of Weir etc. whose leathers were actually much better quality!!
The recolouring process created by Connolly has now been far outclassed by modern techniques and products and so is now a rather redundant system although the name lives on as a description of the process and I think there are one or two companies that can still use the name for the system they use to recolour.

Working in leather repairs or as its known back in the day as leather Connolising it isn’t actually a dye that is being used its more of a paint pigment and its actually mixed as a paint. This is what gives it the durability vs a dye.
Our products are designed to get the best out of your prized leather possessions. Whether that is your leather car seat, leather furniture upholstery, your treasured antique chesterfield sofa or the comfy leather couch and settee in your living room, your favourite leather handbag and jacket or those trendy suede shoes and boots – we have the products and the knowledge to help you!
We have a wide range of leather cleaners for gentle yet effective regular cleaning to stronger cleaners to remove heavy dirt and grime on all types of leather. Different types of leathers (Aniline, Pull Up, Suede, Nubuck & others) need special care and attention and from our range of leather conditioners we will be able to recommend the best one for you.
Ink, Biro Marks, Oil & water stains are a little trickier to remove using normal day to day cleaners. Certain leathers are porous and normal cleaners can cause the stain to worsen. Our specialist stain removal products can get rid of the most stubborn stains.
Tears, rips, burns and holes on leather can be made good by using our leather glue & patch repair kit and a couple of other products. Our filling products are very useful for filling deep scratches, cat scratches. They are flexible, soft yet durable and what’s even better is they are available in 46 colours to make the repair completely invisible. We can put together a customised Leather Repair kit to include all the products you need!
One of the most common problems in leather is colour damage caused by scuffs, fading due to sunlight & general wear. Our water based leather paints & colours can be used for localised repairs and also full restoration.
