Default 200 My 1 Accord EX leather seat problem

We purchased a 2001 Accord EX coupe in Dec 2004. The leather on the
front seats is "mottled." There are light spots with the majority of
the leather slightly darker. Upon examination, it appears there is a
"coating" on the leather that is coming off. I have actually been
able to work at one of the spots and pull of some of the darker
coating. The funny thing is the leather underneath more closely
matches the interior of the car.

What would have been the purpose of the coating? The best guesses so
far is some kind of fire retardent, or some kind of protectant for the

Has anyone ever seen this? I am resigned to using a solvent, probably
acetone, to remove the remainder of the "coating" to improve the
appearance of the seats. What should I do to protect the leather
after this layer is removed?

Suggestions/comments are appreciated.

Sounds like some of the dye is coming out... have no idea why. You
didn't spill anything on it? Is this a localized problem?
