Question Faint Leather Lines

Hi Guys,

This side bolster on my car, are these lines actual marks or are they something that happened pre-manufacture?

Not even sure how I would get them out, or even if they can be got out, anyway here's a pic and thanks;



Thanks.

No ideas on this one?

They look like lines that were there before the seat was even turned into a seat but then again I'm not a leather professional.

If anyone had any ideas that would be great.

Thanks!

I've downloaded the picture and zoomed in on the areas as best I can, but it would be a lot easier to see it in real life.

I'd normally say that one line that looks like this is a fine healed scar or open scar under the finish that has been covered with a technology called stucco, that has 'popped' as the leather has been pulled into shape during the seat manufacture. You wouldn't see it normally, particularly if the leather has a heavy emboss on it.

But.......

I'm also seeing what appears to be a duplicate line that looks extremely similar. To have missed that in the grading process of the leather or during seat manufacture would amaze me these days. It could be a form of machine damage to the leather prior to finishing, but possibly it is a damage that has occurred after the seat was made.

Alternately it could be that the leather has machine damage under neath on the flesh side of the leather, causing the leather to definitively flex along the underside fault line.

Is the top coat damaged at all?

Question

Thanks for that Darryl - very helpful.

This small indentation in the leather is that caused by someone getting in with something in their pocket or was that also manufacture?

Just noticed it when cleaning the side bolster

Picture;



Thanks again for your help.

both leather defects thats should of been picked up before cutting, saying that as mentioned above the scars have probably come out due to tension and depending on where the blemish is on the seat it may off been excepted, generally out of direct view panels are fair game...base boarder, back of the seat etc
