Can this even be done? We've had our leather furniture for about 10 yrs. and it is in great shape besides scratches on the seat cushions from - yea, the cat. Can anything be done about this?

A leather repair tech can fill and recolor the scratches. It's not really a DIY job.

RE: Removing scratches from leather seat cushions.

Recently heard of HOWARD refinishing products and heard they have one for leather pieces. One person said it cleaned up their leather car seats. You can call the company directly for particulars. I really like their Restor A Finish and Feed N Wax-esp for antique treadle machines. ( Am not related in any way to this company). Many of their products are non-toxic. I also plan to get their ButcherBlock Conditioner for the bowls I turn. Many of the Ace and HD folks carry this line.

If you try their product for leather, please let all know.

Why not have them recovered ( if the desgin allows) in a heavy weight fabric?

I am thinking about doing that w/my leather sofa, though, the leather is in perfect like new condition. I'm just tired of the all leather look. Luckily, my seats and backs are removable so it will be easy to get them made by "someone". Certainly not me...When I bought my sofa I made sure the leather was one that didn't scratch and I have a small dog and I don't have any marks on it.
