Fibrenew is a "niche market" business refurbishing and re-dyeing all leather and plastic, offering clients a "GREEN" environmental and cost saving alternative to replacing or recovering damaged pieces. Fibrenew supports men and women worldwide into owning and operating a successful home based mobile service business. Fibrenew accomplishes this by encouraging cooperation between our franchises to share their knowledge and experience. We promote education through seminars, workshops and self-directed business and personal studies.

Fibrenew strives to be environmentally responsible. Our services prevent thousands of tons of used leathers, plastics, and vinyl from filling our landfills annually.
