The quickest and easiest way to repair leather and suede

Our illustrated step-by-step guide below shows you how to easily repair any type of hole, rip, tear or damage using a MastaPlasta patch. Other repair kits are quite time-consuming and involve the use of tools, chemicals and heat. Our self-adhesive patches offer a simple peel-and-stick solution and can be applied in seconds.

Can be used on all natural/synthetic leathers and suedes plus vinyl and many other upholstery fabrics. Please note, MastaPlastas are not suitable for machine-washing.

  • It is important to note that the backing adhesive is very strong and once the patch has been applied it may be difficult to remove. MastaPlasta Ltd cannot accept responsibility for any damage that may be caused to any substrate surface that the patch has been applied to or its subsequent removal by physical or chemical means.

  • Top Tip 1

    The patch does not have to be centered over the hole. As long as the hole is well covered by the patch, try to square the patch up on the item to be repaired. That way it looks like it was always meant to be there!

  • Top Tip 2

    MastaPlastas are specially designed so they do not have to match the underlying fabric – the engineered super-thin edge helps give it a smooth finish so the patches look like embossed leather – part of the design of the sofa or jacket.

  • Top Tip 3

    When cutting the XL MastaPlastas, please use your sharpest scissors to get a clean-cut edge.
