    I would also check your local area if you have someone in your area that makes repairs.

    You can paint leather with chalk paint. When you are happy with the coverage and it's dry, put some clear wax on and buff to a nice soft finish. There are instructions on Hometalk if you want to check it out to make sure! Cheers!

    If you don't want to paint the leather you can easily fix the cracked leather using Kiwi shoe polish. You may have to use a few different tins of polish to create the right color. Rub polish into cracked area; allow to dry completely and lastly apply a coat of Kiwi's clear shoe polish. After polish is completely dry buff with a soft cloth. This will not last forever but it holds up quite well and prevents more cracking. Save the polish you have made by combining different colors of polish for "as needed" touch ups.

    There is a product on Amazon called 'mastaplasta first aid kit' that can be used on leather and vinyl. I've never used the product personally, but my neighbor did and she loved it. It comes in a variety of colors: cream, white, brown, black, beige, etc. and runs around $15-$18 per kit. I would NOT use oils, paint or polish of any kind on leather as leather is a natural product and needs to breathe. Once repaired, you can purchase a leather cleaner/conditioner at your local grocery or online (Amazon has many of these also), to help condition the leather and provide needed moisturizer to prevent further cracking. By the way, I am not an Amazon employee or affiliated in any way, but I am a dedicated Amazon shopper!
