Apart from silicone itself I think you may be onto a looser here - very little sticks to Silicone.

Thanks rick! will try silicone... any idea if using sandpaper on the silicone surface would hekp it ?

The silicone will bond with the new silicone, you just have to make sure that it is clean and dry. (moisture will speed up the setting and you don't want that before it is bonding) Sanding the leather might help though.

I believe that adhesives made for leather are water based and it is flexible when dry. You may have to check leathercraft suppliers.
