Dyeing A Suede Leather Couch

Hello,
I’ve inherited a 10 year old suede leather couch. It’s a light brown color that I don’t much care for and has faded over time due to sun exposure. I was wondering if there is a leather dye product that I could use to dye the couch a dark brown?
PS, I love your website, full of lots of great info.
Thanks,
Carole

Dear Carole,
For this kind of thing you need to consult a leather expert. Since you live in Calgary, I suggest you go to a Saddlery and see what they say. Leather can be dyed, but I am not sure about suede. Keep in mind, also, that you will only be able to go darker than the current color. Good luck and have fun with your project!
