I do know someone who is quite good at recovering saddles. He did a terrific job on a Fi'Zik for me. That's one I haven't used...but to be honest, if I'm going with a non-Italian saddle, I'd probably just go Brooks. I've never heard of one being dyed...maybe I can call some leather shops.

Nikkorod - I think black would be better if going the Brooks route...but the mandarin might be worth checking out. They actually had some of the white professionals but only have one left...and they won't sell it.
