Sonus Faber peeling leather


Hi
I recently bought a pair of SF Lilium, BNIB, and upon unpacking, found that the leather had started to peel. The dealer took them back. The dealer is having it re- wrapped but I was wondering if anyone has done this properly (not just sticking another layer over it) or does it have to go back to the factory to be done properly?
Thanks

I wouldn't accept nothing less than a NEW pair that the dealer has to order.

Unless they were thinking of a hack glue job,I doubt there is a place in the U.S that could do such a repair. I would think the speaker would be disassembled for a new skin.

@OP,
That is a sad way to be introduced to a new speaker.
I think the advice tablejockey gave is appropriate.
If Sonus Faber is reluctant, I would get my money back.

Never had peeling leather and I had Cremona auditor, Stradivari, and now Olympica 3.

Im not ok with a refurbished speaker or fixed speaker.  If it were like a year old then fine.
