What Are Scuffs On Leather?

We hope this article will help you understand what a scuff is, so you can learn all about the different types of issues on leather.
Scuffs are typically a larger area that’s been damaged or worn away, scuffing is more common on furniture usually happening when moving home and the corner of the sofa / couch gets scuffed getting in or out of the home, normally scuffed against a brick wall.
With automotive leather scuffing normally appears after trying to get something large in your car, causing this to scuff the leather as you’re getting this in the car, scuffing is always a bigger amount of damage compared to scratch.
