Zebra Hide, Zebrahide, Zebra Skin Cleaning and Repair in Los Angeles

A Zebra Hide was brought in by a client a couple of weeks ago. He mentioned that the hide did not stay flat on the floor and wanted us to install backing and leather straps on the edges to put some weight on it.
First we did a test to see if it was dirty. Yes, it was. We cleaned it before we started the rest of the process.
Our client wanted a light color and preferably white backing and this was what we selected and cut to fit the size of the Zebra hide.

We then started the process of installation of the backing which took us a day to finish. After this, was the process of sewing the straps on the edges by one of our repair personnel on site. We had to use tiny stitches so they would not show and this was time consuming.

Our client was so happy with the result of our cleaning and installation of the backing and straps on the borders of his Zebra hide. He came back in a day and brought us another custom repair job. This time, a real Chita blanket for repair. I will write about this in a separate post.
