Aussie Steering Wheel Repair

My '88 300E developed a small wear hole in the steering wheel trim which has turned into a big hole.
Is there anyone in Australia who restores these trims?
I don't want to buy a new steering wheel but I want it to look original too.
Thanks!

If you can't find a restorer you could try those those leather wraps you sew around your steering wheel, they're pretty nice... performance products carries them I think.

I wanted to keep it looking as original as I could but that may not be possible.
Thanks very much for the advice. I'll look into it.
