ripped leather seat

so i was helping my gf move and in the process we made a rip on the back of one of my car's leather seat, its about 2cm in length and everytime i look at it my heart sink... without replacing the whole chair, is there anyway to fix it? patch it up? change out that particular leather piece? Anybody have any recommendation for shops that can make it look as OEM and as scarless as possible? How much am i looking at here to get it fix?

they can probably replace the leather panel, and if its on a seam, you should be able to just get it resewn.... depending on the leather and stuff... should run you a couple of hundred bucks, and should look factory when they are done.

To repair it, try New Creations at 944.0664. If you want to replace the panel, give Mark a call at 604.862.6085. His prices are reasonable and his work is excellent.

Nice, this is exactly what I need too. I was about to drop $550 on a new seat - I'm sure this'll be much cheaper.

Really can't say. Repairing will be cheaper for sure but by how much I can't say as Mark is very good at what he does and his labour rate is reasonable.
