Fibrenew Alameda County

Leather, Vinyl, Upholstery Repair Customer Testimonials

I had my beautiful, 10 year old aniline leather sectional sofa cleaned and conditioned by Harry G of Fibrenew Alameda County and it turned out better than I had hoped!  Stains, fading, spots etc made the whole piece look and feel very worn. The service was immediate, fast, efficient and so professional. Really easy to contact, explain what I needed and make an appointment.  I also learned a lot about my sofa and the process of making the aniline finish product.  I bought a cleaning/conditioning kit also, and just conditioned the sofa again.  It's back to beautiful!  Thank you Harry - i'll contact and recommend you again!

Outstanding service! My leather recliner had scratches and needed to be repaired.  Harry was prompt at returning my email. He was very knowledgeable and professional. My chair looks like it did when I first bought it. I am beyond pleased.

Harry did a great job on 2 leather sofas from Roche Bobois that had
some kitten scratches on the cushions.  He did a complete cleaning, conditioning and some light sanding and dyeing.  The job was excellent and the furniture looks great.

From:
Great service! I called and emailed photos of a love seat that had some cracks and discoloration. Harry emailed back by end of the day with a quote and offered appointment times. Harry was prompt, professional, friendly and did the repair in my home in a couple hours. Was so grateful not to have to move and be without my furniture for a week as other companies had said was necessary. Furniture looks like new.

I just had Harry come by today and well if you are as anal about me about cracks in your leather interior, dirt and all that, then he is the guy for you. He is quick and to the point. I love it and I love how my car seats looks like showroom new (ok maybe not that but damn close). I WAS AMAZED and you will be too.

Harry restored a leather sofa for us that was badly stained in two areas.  We had considered replacing the sofa, but decided to try to try Fibrenew first, so glad we did the sofa looks amazing!!!! The color is matched perfectly and the sofa looks NEW!!!! Harry was very professional and great to work with.   I would highly recommend Fibrenew and Harry for any leather repairs you may have.

I'm writing this review as a VERY satisfied Fibrenew customer, NOT in any way otherwise connected with them or in receipt of any "freebie."  I was referred to Fibrenew by another company highly regarded for REPLACEMENT, not renewal, of leather furnishings.  I was favorably impressed when I first met Harry George and heard his appraisal of my project, especially his fair assessment of the likelihood of good results.  My expectations were not inflated, and they were fulfilled in every way.  The work was done and delivered BEFORE the date estimated and for the price quoted.  One must understand my sense of the project's importance:  These are the original leather cushions for an Eames lounge chair purchased in 1971.  We're talking a very valuable design icon here!!  After my 45 years of use and that of friends and family, indeed it was showing some wear.  But most distressing was that the plywood shells of the back and seat had separated, requiring shipment to Herman Miller in Michigan for proper repair.  When they return, and when the cushions are reinstalled, I'll sit in that chair with delight and pride, until ... Hey: I'm 75 years old!!

From:
Harry restored two badly stained and scratched leather recliner chairs for us.  They now look like new, or maybe even better.  He matched the original color perfectly, which maybe wasn't easy, as it is a reddish brown.  His mobile service helps a lot too.  Great job, and prompt!

From:
Excellent work! Scott was meticulous when repairing our beautiful leather chair that our cat scratched in multiple places. He did a terrific job. Looks amazing!

From:
Harry did a great job repairing the leather seats in my BMW. There was a puncture hole on the seat and a few spots that were discolored where I rest my arms/elbows while driving. It is like the imperfections were never there. It was very convenient for me because he came to my work place and did the repairs in the parking lot. I highly recommended him.

From:
Harry performed miracles on my leather dining room chairs, damaged during a recent move across country.  He will treat your leather like it's his own.  Highly recommend !

Karen L.
From:
We have over 40 leather chairs in our office and one in particular had large ink stains while others had ink marks and one other chair had the dye worn off on the arms form a lot of use.  Harry came in and got rid of all the ink stains in yellow leather chairs and touched up the arms, and we then had him clean them, so the 8 year old chairs now look as good as new.  Fantastic!

Steven H.
From:
Thank you Harry George for restoring my leather sofa and chair. They honestly look as good as when I bought them 6 years ago.  Couldn't be more pleased

Nancy M.
From:
Harry was referred by Lazy Boy.  I called him and he promptly got back to me.  He came to the house, saw a the tear in my leather chair, told me the choices I had, told me how long the repair would take and took the back of my chair.  
When he returned the piece, I was absolutely amazed.  It looked as good as new  completely exceeding my expectations...  This is a professional service I am happy to recommend here on Yelp and to all my friends and family.   David B.

WOW - amazing!!!  I got my couch and love seat bottom cushions redyed and my 10 year old couches look brand new.  I'm calling him back to redye the back cushions.  I should have done them all at once.

Call Fibrenew Alameda Co. - it's worth the $$ plus you'll recycle your leather and not add more huge pieces to our landfill.  It's soooo worth it!!!!

Harry George did a fantastic job repairing the leather on my wood steering wheel on my 2008 Mercedes S550. My leather was badly worn on both sides of the steering wheel and Harry matched the color 100% restoring it to brand new in appearance. I highly recommend him and his technique he uses to diligently repair steering wheels believe it, you won't be disappointed!

From:
GREAT communication! I phoned Harry, he asked me to e mail a couple of photos ,he e-mailed back right away with a reasonable quote ,we set an appointment for two days later! I had a deep burn hole with puckering in my sectional leather couch which is a slightly odd color. Harry came on time and did a beautiful job ,repair actually turned out better than expected.

Patty W.
From:
Harry of Fibrenew did a fantastic job repairing one of the cushions of my leather couch.  It had about 5 different tears, one of them quite large.  I really didn't want to replace the entire couch.  It is a Hancock & Moore and very well made.  I've had it for about 25 years now.  I was amazed at the quality of Harry's work.  You'd never know it had been torn.  I highly recommend Harry and his service.  I understand he also repairs car upholstery as well as many other products.  I will definitely use Harry's services again,

From:
I needed to repair holes in two leather recliners and contacted Scott for help. Not only was he very helpful, he directed me to the best approach for the job rather than just making sure he got the business. You don't find that often. Thanks!

Robert F.
From:
I have 4 expensive leather recliners (2) and incliners (2).  My primary theater seat's headrest became discolored because of oil from hair.  Harry came over within a few days of my service request and refinished the headrest.  After 10 days the oil resurfaced and he instructed me how to extract the oil.  Once the oil was extracted he came back and refinished again at no charge.

Excellent service and ethics.

Richard J.
From:
Harry was so easy to deal with. He's a mobile service and he just so happened to have an appointment around the area the next day.
He came over and restored it on-site!
It was nice that he answered his phone as I left messages on the other fibrenew locations.

Cay A.
From:
We were pleased with our new SUV's leather upholstery. Then six months later, blue ink was scribbled a few inches onto the back seat leather. I tried to rid mark, using among other methods - an ink eraser, a sponge with cleansers Ajax, Clorox, and Shout. The later made the upholstery worse, taking out the dye.

I was advised to use a company called FIBRENEW, specialists in leather and vinyl repair. I called their number and contacted Harry George, who asked "How deep are the markings and the dimensions? " He said he could repair, but needed an electrical outlet, daylight, and no rain. Job would be done on driveway.

Harry was able to remove the ink, then fill and apply matching new dye on the leather.

We are happy with the work results, which was done in January 2012. On occasion, we have the interior cleaned and detailed, but even then we cannot find the previous blemish. The repair and re-dye has withstood the test of time, thanks to Harry and his skill set.

From:
Harry restored the leather on a black leather sofa and an aniline armchair for us. We could not be happier with the results! What a great way to rehabilitate our living room furniture! Harry matched the colors perfectly and worked very carefully on the items. He cares very much about the quality of his work and communicates well with updates on progress. Highly recommended.

Susan S.
From:
I've used several leather repair shops/services in the past and Harry's work is the best.  I'm a perfectionist and very particular about my cars. He's worked on two of my BMW's, a Mercedes and my Porsche. His prep work and color match is awesome as I can't tell the difference between the repaired leather on my seats and the factory leather. I live in San Jose but drive up to the East Bay for Harry's services because he's that good.  Highly recommended!!

Thien D.
From:
Hands down best service I have ever had. I have a 2007 Lexus IS250 that had chips on the dash around the navigation screen from my installing an iPod interface. The dash is made of textured rubber that looks like leather. He was honest and told me that in the many years of him working on interiors he had never seen a rubber dash. He called some colleagues and did some research and was able to fill the chips and cracks and my dash looks like new now. I was very impressed with his honesty and his persistence in finding a solution to my problem.

Harry was on time, very professional, repaired a tear in my  leather couch.Looks brand new.Would recommend Fibrenew Alameda County highly.

Mary Ellen R.
From:
Harry was very nice to work with, very professional and knowledgeable.  He was on time, came to my home and repaired my upholstery, as we discussed over the phone.  Very smooth transaction.

Would def recommend him and his business to others!

Rashell D.
From:
I found Fibrenew with an internet search and was contacted promptly to set up an appointment.  Harry George showed up for the appointment and clearly described what would be required to restore and re-die the leather on my 15 year old chair and ottoman.  I was provided with a reasonable quotation and Harry took the items to his office to perform the work.  Harry kept me up to date with status as the work progressed and delivered the finished product this morning.  The chair and ottoman look great and I could not be happier.  I highly recommend Harry George and Fibrenew to anyone in need of leather work, and will use him again in the future.

Paul A.
From:
My dogs had scratched up my couch so bad that I thought I would have to replace it.  I decided to give Fibrenew a shot before replacing it.  Wow, they did a great job.  Looks almost as good as new.  Harry was on time for the appointment and repaired it in about an hour and a half.  I would highly recommend this service.

Jim R.
From:
I used Harry for my Buick leather and his work was so good it was impossible to tell any color difference. So I hired him again for my leather couch and chairs. A real craftsman.

George Z.
From:
I've used several different leather repair shops and Harry's work is by far the best,not something I say lightly because I'm a perfectionist. He's done work on three of my cars and the color match and special coating used makes the leather look factory new. I live in San Jose but have no problem driving up to the East Bay for his work because it's so good. He's very deliberate and takes his time with the color match and prep work.

Did a very good job on my cars interior! 6 Stars if possible

Michael B.
From:
Our black leather sofa had a roughly 6 inch semicircular tear on one of its un-removable seat cushions. I contacted Harry at Fibrenew through his website and he called me back in a timely manner. After looking at some pictures I sent him of the damage he said that he could make a repair. We set up a time and date. He showed up on time explained the process and was very professional. I am pleased with the out come. Working on a soft surface to repair a large tear is difficult. Harry did a wonderful job and I would recommend him to anyone.

I am a competitve figure skater and my figure skating boot ripped around my ankle area (about a 4 inch rip) and I have the Pacific coast competition less than a week. I went to a whole bunch of places, but all were telling me impossible to fix. I found Fibrenew and talked to Harry if he could repair my skate. After some pictures sent to his website to see if he could, he called me back saying yes. I went to his place and he started on my skate repair. After leaving and going to work, he called 4 hours later said done. Amazing!!! I am now able to do my competition! Let's see if I win and get to go to nationals!
