What glue we can use on the textile backing on leather back side for reinforcement (being laser cut), so that glue can evaporate from stitch holes and doesn't give leather a bad look by remaining in stitch holes...???

Hi Ankit. We're having a little trouble understanding your question. Are you asking if we can please use a glue when laser cutting the leather to try and give the leather a better look when finished? Can you please reframe the question clearly.

Currently we use protective tape on the back of leather when laser cutting it. The charred finish (We think you're talking about) on the edges of the leather are unavoidable when laser cutting. Since it's a laser beam cutting through a natural material.
