  • Restoring leather is sometimes known as "Connollising", due to the respected reputation of the Connolly Leather company, a British company supplying highly finished leather to car manufacturers. "Connollising" basically involves scrubbing down the leather with a cleaner or soap and a stiff brush or slightly abrasive sponge. This thins and removes most of the original surface color and finish. The leather is then moisturized and recolored, bringing it back as close to original condition as possible.
