Note: Leather that has more than one color is more difficult and therefore more expensive to repair. Some multicolors are impossible to re-dye exactly.

*Bycast (bicast, bi-cast)  is a leather and synthetic combination. The quality varies tremendously and a lot of it is very poor quality, so it is wise to only buy bycast from highly reputable stores that guarantee the quality.
