comprehensive guide to leather repair and restoration

It has always been our desire to help those that either currently do what we do, or desire to do what we do. We want to pass along ideas and experience that will help those interested in the leather repair and restoration process at every skill level achieve success. To this end, we offer the following.

Formerly known as the Leather Technician Field Guide, the Comprehensive Guide to Leather Repair and Restoration has been expanded to over 300 pages of instruction, including theoretical, hands-on, and anecdotal information gleaned over thirty years, as well as external links to additional resources, such as task-oriented YouTube videos. Our experiences, and those of our many, many friends in the trade have contributed to the most comprehensive, exhaustive manual available anywhere. It provides insights and information with a single goal - to make you better at what you want to do. Better still, it is still expanding, and everyone who purchases the Guide is automatically eligible for all future versions. Considering spending tens of thousands on a franchise? This investment could save you a lot of money!

The ADV Leather Repair and Restoration Forum is an interactive extension to the Guide. It's a place to ask questions online about information in the guide, as well as those that arise during day-to-day projects. Join now and receive a discount on the the Guide!
