Bentley Motors has announced a limited series of bespoke leather cabin cushions to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III, writes ILM.



A team of craftspeople at the automotive manufacturer, based at Bentley’s Dream Factory in Crewe, digitised the special Coronation Emblem before creating each bespoke cushion by hand.

Reportedly, three full days and four iterations of embroidery processing were required, with nearly 30,000 stitches in each emblem needing careful refinement.

Each cushion took three hours to produce and uses hides sourced from Northern Europe where Bentley notes that the temperate climate and lack of barbed wire fencing reduces imperfections.

Each hide is checked and marked by hand and eye before being precision cut, stitched, shaped and finished entirely by hand. The cushions are designed to match the interiors of the company’s cars and will not be available for purchase.
