Automotive - Leather is great!

Nikki Gustafson from the City of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa comments on Linkedin – simply put, leather looks great. It creates a classy appearance to any item or line, whether you’re seeking a modern or classic vibe; it never fails to impress. 



Leather’s ability to mix classic aesthetics with traditional techniques and still create a contemporary product sets it apart from other materials. Moreover, it’s not only long-lasting in a durability sense, but also in a fashion sense. 


Leather has never come out of style in upholstery. It will continue to look good for years to come and your line, whether they’re cars, airplanes or yachts will stay on-trend in the future. Leather is a real investment of practicality and style, making it a great investment financially.


A naturally tough material, leather really comes into its own with wear and tear. Its durability and breathability make it ideal for automobiles.


Many mass-manufactured, mass-produced and man-made fabrics seek to find a perfect finish. Leather, however, is a natural substance. This makes leather a unique material – raising the game for your car/ yacht/ airplane /sofa.
