Leather seat repair needed

Hi all.

Some of you may know that I picked up a little A Class merc for my wife a few months back (good swap eh? Lol).

Anyhoo, the car is generally in very good condition, and I've been working my way round it in an attempt to get it up to a good standard.

One thing that bugs me though, is that there are two very tiny dots on the outer driver's seat bolster where the coating of the leather/analine has been removed. I've attached a pic for reference.

Do any of you fine people have any experience of any product or brand that repaired leather damage well?

I'd be very grateful for any recommendations.

As always, cheers

Cooks

Hey Cooks, do you know if is it leather or imitation leather? Only ask as Merc are known for imitation leather and it might be a different fix.

I had to zoom in there to make sure the dog didn't have two heads. Useless observation I know.

Cheers. I'll have a look - I have some LTT cleaner/protector stuff, and it's good. The damage is literally less than the size of a pea. I'll see what they say.

Its vinyl bud, the material is ready available and most trim shops have it due to it being a very common problem.
