Interior leather repair? Need color..

My interior is a hellbeige 2 N6HC, can't seem to find the touch up dye for it, I'm trying to repair my leather seats. Can anyone tell me where I could purchase it? Thanks in advance!

have you checked leatherique ? you may have to get a leather specialty shop to mix dyes together to get a custom color

OP, remove the rear seat cushion and you'll find a flap of leather. Cut a 1 inch square of the leather and send it to Leathetique for matching. I did that for my grey seats but the color was a bit light. I ordered a bottle of black and the color matches.

Yup. The leather that's exposed to sunlight (uv rays) had darkened slightly when compared to the leather under (and not exposed to sunlight) rear seat cushion leather. Be patient when mixing the pigment.

How did this turn out? I have been reading thru a ton of threads about leather dye. I don't really see good things about leatherique
