This sofa had been damaged and had a burst seam located on the left hand side of this two seater sofa. This is a common problem in sofas as there is a vast amount of faulty stitching.
Our technician arrived at the customers house and used a curved needle and cotton to stitch it back together. However it can often be very difficult to conduct as it is hard to get the needle through the leather. Therefore the technician has to use pliers to assist him. This is known in the trade as slip stitching using a special curved needle. Also allowing us to sew from the outside of the sofa without having to remove the covers from the sofa. However this leaves the stitching invisible as it remains inside.
The above image shows the repair after our technician had sewn the seam back together.
We also offer a machine stitching service. This is offered when the seam lines have torn rather than just the stitching coming undone. When we repair it we pull the cover in to re-machine stitch it which makes it look as it would of originally done. When this occurs the technician comes to your house and collects the cover for the sofa upon the first visit. It is then taken away to the workshop for approximately 7-14 working days (dependent on technicians workload at the time) to enable one of our technicians to undertake the service. The cover will then be brought back to your home upon a second visit where they will re attach the cover to your sofa. The sofa repair is then at this point fully completed.
