What Is Leather Edge Painting?

Leather Edge Painting is a process where the cut edge is painted to seal this from the element of daily use.

Leather edge painting is done at the point of manufacture and is carried out by passing the leather onto rollers to apply an even coating of edge paint to seal the raw edge. If the raw edge is left the fibres will soak in oils and body fluids and become damaged.

With the correct products edge painting can be carried out by hand using paint brushes and sponges to apply a nice even coating that’s almost as good as the original, care must be taken when applying the edge paint to ensure an even coating is applied.
