Fixing scratch in leather seat

My 2016 MS with black next gen seats somehow ended up getting a long, curved scratch in the passenger seat. I'm guessing one of my passengers had something in their back pocket that scratched the leather as their were sliding their rear end out of there. Is there a product anyone would recommend to try to stain the scratch to match the rest of the seat again?

There are leather repair people who are quite good and can typically make such scratches disappear. It's a bit of an art form. It's not uncommon for car dealer repair departments to accidentally damage a seat while servicing a car and need to have it repaired. I suggest calling a couple of local car dealer service departments and asking them who they use.
