Yes, we can


You can sand leather.
We scuffed theses scratched and abused leather chairs with a palm sander loaded with 220 grit sandpaper. It took some time, but here are the results.
The graffiti and scratches have retreated. Some traces are still evident, but the subtle remaining marks look more like an aged distressed patina than the original wanton, perverse vandalism. Moving on, we'll rub in some generous squirts of a leather lotion to see if we can't coax these beautiful, time-worn ladies to come out and party once again.
