Q: The headrest on my leather armchair has gone dark in one area and the colour looks like it is cracking, what caused this?
A: This is usually caused by head grease that has penetrated the leather and caused the colour to begin to crack. This can also be a problem on the arm pads due to perspiration. Certain medications i.e blood pressure tablets can cause this problem to when you perspire. The affected areas can be de-greased and re-coloured.
If the leather has worn into a hole then the damaged panels may need to be replaced.
