What a great job done by this very professional and exceptional man. His repair of my couch and car seat was more then I could have ever hoped for. He saved me a ton of money if I had to replace them. He was prompt and returned by call the same afternoon and had the job done before I even knew it. I would highly recommend him for all of your repairs.

I had a tree come through my roof and it caused some damage to our sectional cream leather sofa, I loved this sofa, and Mark from Fibrenew helped us make it as good as new, hard to come by such a cozy item. I had a new looking sofa when Mark was done. Better than before the accident. Thanks for helping to bring the cozy back to our lives! We appreciated you superior work! And it was a reasonable cost, so glad I found Fibrenew!

A truly amazing job for an impossible project. My leather car seat had a tear and long rip. The leather was also showing its age. The dealership said I needed a new leather cover ($1500 plus labor to install). Mark pulled out his magic and I have 2 seats that look brand new. The seats have been restored back to a nearly new condition. I had him refinish both seats. Completely happy and looking for other projects for restoration:) He can restore anything leather.

I have an off-white leather sofa that I love and use constantly. Unfortunately, it tore. I called Mark from FIBRENEW. Mark returned my call promptly, made an appointment and came over as scheduled. Mark was extremely professional and conscientious in his approach. Mark completed the job beautifully. You cannot see where the repair was made. His color-matching was beyond compare. The cost was more than reasonable. If I had to replace the sofa, something comparable would cost thousands. Thank you Mark for your meticulous and professional approach. I would highly recommend Mark and certainly use your services again without question.

I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Mark. I'd been crazy to try to fix my couch and ottoman myself by painting them with fabric paint to hide the discoloring and fading. Needless to say, the end result from my efforts were awful. Within a week, Mark was able to rework and recolor them both so that they now look as good - if not better - than they did when they were brand new. He was timely, professional and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him. Next time I have a need, he will be the person I contact right away!

I had a car seat repaired by Fibrenew and the results were great. The technician was easy to work with and flexible as to timing. I dropped off and picked my car up the same day! The color match was very good and the overall appearance was greatly enhanced, and at a very reasonable price.

Dave, Chapel Hill, NC

Mark worked his magic on a badly damaged leather recliner. The thing is that it was not our chair! We borrowed it from a friend. The chair was almost 20 years old which means the style was discontinued and the sage green color was a non existent choice in today's furniture selection. Mark not only allowed us to return the chair repaired to perfection but our friends asked him if he could touch up the matching ottoman since it looked terrible next to the flashy recliner ! Thanks Mark!

Mark did a fantastic job repairing the leather seat in my Tahoe. I was very impressed with his professionalism, attention to detail and work product. He did a great job. I will definitely use him again in the future.

Trey, Chapel Hill, NC

Mark did a great job in repairing a hole in the leather driver seat on my older car. The hole was completely gone and he dyed and topcoated the remainder of the seat so that the color and finish was flawless. He was on time, very neat, well organized and completed the job efficiently. I am very happy with the results. I would highly recommend him.

G Howarth, Durham, NC

Called Mark about saving my leather seat in my 2004 Mini Cooper. He came to my office the next day and did the job in about an hour. The seat looks like new!! I am very pleased with Mark's work and his attention to detail. I highly recommend him for all your leather upholstery repair needs.

Peter Goswick, Durham

I contacted them yesterday to a get quote on a piece of furniture that needed fixing and Mark replied almost immediately. He was honest about the work that needed to be done and explained what needed to be done. I liked the honesty and the timeliness of response. Definitely will refer my friends to Fibrenew.

Very responsive to emails. Mark was punctual and knowledgeable. My couch had a structural issue and he came to my place, assessed the problem, and fixed it (on site). Affordable and professional. Frankly, couldn't be happier.

We have used the services on several occasions. The repairs are professional and the process is seamless.

Tonnika Haynes


I was very pleased with the results of my restoration. The technicians who worked on my repair were named Mark and Patrick. They were friendly, timely, and did a nice restoration. Great job, guys!!!

Tanya A


Patrick did an outstanding job on the front seats of my Acura today. The color was a perfect match and he was very professional. Had them done once before by Fibrenew and they held up for 6 years so wanted to do it again. For those of us who keep our cars a long time and take good care of the body, nice to know there is a way to fix how bad leather wears.

Steven Hymanson


Convenient (next appointment), Quality work (looks like new), Speedy service (less than 30 minutes) that how I would describe Fibrenew. Thank you Patrick Blakely

Sylvia Williams, Durham

I had Patrick do a re dye of my leather automobile seats. The results were excellent. He did a great job on matching the colors. The seats look new again! I would definitely use his services again in the future. Thanks Patrick!

Mark Ethridge


Patrick showed up on time and did a fantastic job! We are very pleased with the final product.

Patrick did a wonderful job repairing my leather couch. He was able to fix the base of the couch so that it was no longer sagging, and the cushions were re-stuffed and new fabric was put on the back where the velcro is located. As you can see, the couch no longer droops in the center, you can't see the fabric peaking out, and it feels great sitting down on it. Patrick was very communicative, knowledgeable, and worked diligently to get this project done in a timely manner. I recommend Fibrenew to anyone who needs furniture repairs!

I have been looking for someone to repair the rear headrests on my 2002 Lexus for quite sometime. No one seemed to be interested. I came upon Patrick while he was doing a job at the YMCA in Burlington. He stopped what he was doing to take a look at my car and said he would take care of it! His workmanship was beautiful! His price reasonable as well. He was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely contact him again for any restoration that I need done.

Sue Bugno


This has been an absolutely blessing finding Patrick fixing my bmw leather. The guy was a true gentleman and fixed my leather perfectly.. I would absolutely recommend him and his company again!

Dustin Burke


Patrick did a phenomenal job on my faded leather sofa. I didn't realize how the California sun had bleached the back of my sofa until I moved. Patrick re-dyed and restored the “newness� to my sofa. He is very professional and thorough with his work. Most of all it's a mobile service.

Theresa Moore


I have worked with Patrick twice and every time it's alway an amazing job performed! I have a throne chair business and he keeps my chairs up and in good shape. Will be using him again soon! Please contact him asap!

Kamal Simpson


My experience with fibrenew was excellent. The young man who came out did a beautiful job on my chair and I am beyond pleased. He was so professional and a joy to have worked with.

Donna Burden


Even if we couldn't do business, they found away for me to understand why.

Andre Evans


Patrick is extremely professional and skilled! Always does a fantastic job!

Bryan Littlejohn


Patrick restored an authentic Corbusier chaise lounge which had been damaged badly by our cats over the years, with lots of scratches and punctures. I am thrilled with the results. Patrick was responsive and friendly and is a great communicator. I highly recommend this company.

Linda Taylor


I recently bought a used car that was pristine aside from a small gash in the passenger door. Patrick said it wouldn't be perfect, but much less noticeable. I'm a Type-A personality and wasn't sure if it would be good enough, but I have to say I'm thrilled with how it turned out. I highly recommend Fibrenew.

Tresa Pickup


Service person was prompt, courteous and professional. He explained the problem and the appropriate solution. He made sure I was satisfied before completing the repair. Highly recommended! Would definitely use again.

Michael Minozzi


We would definitely give Patrick and Fibrenew five stars. We have a large leather sectional that has become like one of our family and didn't want to replace it. It was showing a lot of wear on the seat cushions and Patrick dyed them, matching the color perfectly. Patrick was a pleasure to work with and we would definitely recommend him.

Karen Rockhold


Patrick came out and repaired a tear and restored my leather seats in my car. The end result: They completely look like new! I highly recommend Patrick and Fibrenew for all of your leather restoration needs.



Patrick and his team are amazing, Great attention to detail and customer satisfaction. Our leather sofas needed some TLC and they received just that. We had some concerns about the foam filling, they were immediately addressed and our sofas are in wonderful shape now. Would 100% recommend them, thank you so much!
