You could sand the surface which would create a Nubuck leather surface.
What is Nubuck:
"Nubuck (pronounced /ˈnjuːbʌk/) is top-grain cattle leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside, to give a slight nap of short protein fibers, producing a velvet-like surface. It is resistant to wear, and may be white or coloured." (Wikipedia)
Is Nubuck the same as Suede?
Nubuck is similar to suede, but differs in which side of the leather is sanded:
"There is not much visible difference between the two. Suede leather has been sanded on the inner layer of the skin, while Nubuck is sanded on the outer or exterior skin of the animal, since the outside layer of a skin is tougher Nubuck tends to be more durable" (Wikipedia)
Depending on how the leather was originally dyed, you may need to redye it, but if the original dyeing fully penetrated the leather, you may not need to.
