I highly recommend Bob. I had a one inch gash in my dash that over the years got wider and as the the sun baked the vinyl. I though it was too late but Bob saved my Dash! Thanks Bob.

Bobs work is pure perfection …my couch looks brand new …he is professional and very reasonable ….and he even has dog treats in his pocket …can't say enough good things about his work

I'mWe have had 2 large leather sleeper couches that we bought new back in the late 1980s. The leather was from Natuzzi and was thick and durable but the over the years from use the surface dye faded and wore out. I did a Google search for leather dyers and found Bob Dowdy of Fibrenew South on Long Island NY. Bob visited our home to evaluate our two couches and concluded that the leather could be repaired and re-dyded to match the original color and texture. Bob also suggested new stuffing for the armrests. Fortunately we were able to remove the sections needing repair and dye and brought them to Bob's shop rather than Bob doing the re-dye work in our home. The work that Bob did to bring our couches back to like new condition and color was simply astounding. The color match was perfect and the various surface leather scratches were repaired. Real leather couches nowadays are very expensive so it might make sense to check with Bob to see if your leather furniture is worth saving. I couldn't recommend Bob any more highly.

Right before New Year's Eve, I burned my leather sofa. Reached out to Bob at Suffolk Fibernew. Came and fixed the damaged area.
Great service, great job, great price.

Happy New year!!

I would highly recommend Bob .
I never thought my leather couch could be fixed .
I had an oil stain that discolored leather .
It was completely covered and color matched perfectly. You could never tell it was ever spiked .
Bob was friendly and prompt. He knows his craft without any doubt.

I highly recommend Bob, he was great! I had a one inch cut in my dash that over the years started to widen as the sun backed the vinyl. I was worried I waited too long but Bob made it disappear. Thanks Bob you saved my dash!

Gregory P Bouchard, Greenlawn

Highly recommend! Bob was great; professional - his work shows the years of experience. I had a large leather couch repaired, both cushions and re-dyed. Looks brand new. I will be a returning customer for other projects!

Jillian Sirico


Bob repaired our red leather chesterfield sofa and did a really good job on it. The arm and half of the seat of the couch was all worn out and cracked and he repaired it to look just like the other half. We were very pleased with the outcome.

Trudi Esposito, Ronkonkoma

Bob was friendly professional and very neat. He did an outstanding job on fixing my leather chair. I would highly recommend his services.

Rosanne Lombardo


Bob is fantastic, as is the Fibrenew Company. He took old, stained leather couches and made them look like a million bucks. I loved the work on the couches so much, I asked him to change the color of a leather chair I had, as well. See for yourself . Bob/Fibrenew Suffolk South represent leather renewal work that's professional, diligent, and perfectionists! I can't thank Bob enough for everything.

Rob K


Bob from Fibrenew repaired two holes in my Lazyboy recliner. He meticulously matched the color and it's near impossible to find where the damage was. He also was a pleasure to deal with. I'd highly recommend his services to anyone.

Thank you Bob! Our couched was literally shredded on many areas from a move recently. I was going to get a new couch but decided to see if it could be repaired, before I spent $$$ on a new couch. I could not believe the job Bob did! I can't even see where the damage was! It looks like new!!! And reasonable too!! Thank you so much for your amazing work!!

Maria Harris


Amazing job done on my leather couch! It got damaged in a move and before I decided to get a new couch, I called Bob. Well, let me tell you.... he did a wonderful job and I can't even tell where the damage was!!!

Maria Lamon


My brother and nephew slid our leather couch down a carpeted stair case. Well , who new we would scrape the leather along the top edges. We thing we just destroyed our couch. We Call Bob, the man is an artist. Couldn't believe the transformation, he also touched up the faded area of the leather couch. The man is a miracle worker! Joeg

Bob is highly professional and took the time to get the color of my leather couch cushions to match PERFECTLY ! Would highly recommend to anyone. THANKS BOB !!!!

Brian Kelly


Bob is the real deal. I never talked to him before and texted him a picture of my leather club chair. He called me back almost immediately at 7:30 pm. He said that, unfortunately, there was nothing he could do for my particular issue and explained why. He advised that, unless I was sentimental about it, I should just get a new chair. He then entertained my barrage of questions about leather and gave me excellent shopping advice. He did all of this knowing I was not going to hire him for this job.

He is both a genuine expert and a true professional.

Bob did a wonderful job on our recliner. He was very thorough and conscientious. He professional attitude was not only noted on how well our recliner looks but how pleasant and cordial he was.

Betty Velez, Medford,NY

We had Bob by for repair of a leather loveseat and chair we thought was unrepairable after accidently damaging them and was all set to put the set out at the curb. The finished product was so good we decided to keep the set for several more years and this was all done at the fraction of the cost of a new set. Bob is very friendly and professional and I would highly recommend him.

Patti Passarelli


Bob was a true professional! I couldn’t be happier with the job he did on my sofa cushions. I definitely would use him again!

John Misturini


Stanley's Furniture referred me to Bob at Fibrenew for my couch repair. This was after I tried a "do it yourself" video on You tube, that made it worse! Bob was great to work with. He explained everything that was needed and helped me make the best decision for my repairs. He is trustworthy and his craftsmanship is outstanding. I had small cracks throughout my couch and he spent nearly 2 hours perfecting the look and match. The couch came out beautiful and I couldn't be happier with the whole experience.

Dawn Pezzuti


Bob is a gentleman and a professional Great work on time and budget as promised.

John Testa


Bob, the company owner, restored a leather club chair by removing a large stain and dying the chair. He came to our home, was on time, and in short, did a spectacular job. He is a professional and his prices are very reasonable. I have no reservation in recommending him. RJL

jeff lobb, water mill, ny

Bob came on time he cleaned and repaired the leather furniture as we agreed-upon. He even repaired parts that were not part of the quote, going overboard to make our furniture look new again. Very Pleasant and courteous person never rushed the job and was meticulous with his work.

Thank you, Bob, for doing a wonderful job and giving me several more years out of my leather couch. It was such a pleasure doing business with you.

If I could give Bob and fibernew 10 Stars I would. My 20 year old leather sofa loveseat and club chair was restored to new again.
I never thought the stains and darkened color could be restored to its original light color and beauty.  The professional, caring service was excellent !!

I was amazed at the incredible job Bob did as my 20 year old leather sofa was renewed to its original color and condition. I could not more highly recommend the services and professional care!!

Lu Steele


Had my leather sectional couch cleaned and repaired today by Bob Dowdy of Fibernew Suffolk South. Friendly, professional, on time. Couch is 10 years old and looks great! Spotless work, reasonably priced. Told me ahead of time what the approximate cost would be based upon results after cleaning. Right on the money! Thanks Bob for a job well done.

George C.

Awesome work - i just bought a new seat for my bike i figured i could do it myself but when i put it on the ground i scraped the bottom on the cement. Bob took one look at it and said that's nothing ill make it look like you just pulled it out of the box.  I dropped by seat off to Bob Dowdy and he fixed it the same day.  Nice work and thanks for saving my $500 mustang seat.

Mark S.

Bob Dowdy did a magnificent job! He attempted to remove a stain on a delicate fabric that several people had already attempted with no luck. He removed the stain completely and the fabric looks as good as new! I would recommend him without hesitation for any cleaning or repair job. He was on time, very professional and did a great job. Thank you Bob!

Bob made my brand new leather couch look brand new again after my cat clawed it up! You can't even tell there was any damage, there were several punctures! I cant believe how good it came out. You couldn't find it if you tried! He was so nice and very helpful. Would totally recommend and use him again. I had called a couple other places and they said they couldn't repair it. So thankful I found Bob!

Kim P.

I have a 2015 Toyota Camry XSE- the seats are light gray, leather & suede and had dye transfer from my dark blue jeans on them.  Bob cleaned not only my seats, but also the center console.  Looks as good as new!  Friendly, great communication, punctual - highly recommend!

Juliet G.

Bob came and fixed my sectional that had damage to the leather. I was all set to get rid of ii but this will save me a few years. I called him Monday and it was fixed by Wednesday. I recommend him higly.

Bill S.

Bob did a spectacular job on my 2005 Altima SE-R, had a huge rip in the leather on the driver seat bolster and after only 2 hours the seat looks like brand new! I also had the passenger seat refinished as well and looks amazing. Would definitely recommend Bob's services to friends and family, I actually heard about Fibrenew from my own family member. Bob even took care of painting my jetski's seat and side covers the same day! Couldn't be happier with Fibrenew
