Is it that proper material not.available locally? All pics including that Hilux show cheap looking leatherette type material.

Quality synthetic leather not available?

I need to redo 2 front seats in my Mazda and while it's not real leather or anything, it does have the grain/texture and perforated inserts and I would gladly pay the money to get it done in similar material.

Synthetic leather = Faux leather = Leatherette.

All the same. So you would actually be looking for expensive leatherette.



If you find out let us know as I may reupholster my vehicle next year once kids out of car seats.

I know there is another thread on this somewhere but...

There are two main types of synthetic leather materials: polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polyurethane (PU).

You should look for the PU if you want something that feels very close to genuine leather.

He has both leather or the synthetic leather

I did not ask if he had the perforated one because I was not interested in it

Thanks for the input. Maybe it's just how the pics are showing up. I will have to pass through and see in person.

Symphony leather is the term they use for the high quality synthetic material.

I bought genuine leather at Rahamans on Cipero st. It's shaped just like the cow ,with legs and everything , one problem is that anywhere the cow had a Bobo or any cut , the spot is a hole. The next thing is that because of the shape, the patterns have to be laid out to get optimum use of the hide. They were selling for over $3g for one , but the boss gave me for $2g.

Elsocorro Auto Supplies had an upholstery Dept and were the agent for Katzkins a high quality leather available in a variety of colours. I believe that they still have some stock although they closed down a while ago. They did a Rolls that I painted with tan leather . It was one of the best jobs I've seen.

Their no. Is 638 2430 .Ask for the manager. They wanted to sell out all the stock so they showed it to me. If it's sold , ( which I doubt) ask who bought it.

The Katzkin website will actually do the seats for my car via their configurator but I'm hoping to find something slightly less than 1k USD if i can.

Bro the material looks good but who the hell is this upholsterer?

Why do you all tolerate this kind of half ass jobs that people like to say is “bess” work? Stand up and say this is sheit and do it over or get back your money.

If this is what u could have afforded, then forgive my comments.

That material has to pull and tighten alot more, threading and stitching has to be more neat and straight. And imagine i seeing that clear as mud in the pic, could just imagine how it looks in person.

Send your seamstress these pics, tell him i said he is a waste.

Let me know if i can leave these pics here of your car or if you would like me to remove it. But i suggest leave it so people can see an example of the type of work to look out for and stay far from.
