The objective of installing real leather upholstery in your car is to enhance the luxury of the interiors. The reason should not be merely durability or hygiene as most real leather is durable. The property of high-quality leather is a luxury feel that must be enjoyed. This is what makes superior leather upholstery a specialty product.
Re-upholstering is a process where all the existing soft coverings on the seats and door pads are removed and replaced. The existing fabric or leather covers are removed and custom covers are installed as per the original equipment in the car. These are not the average slip-on covers that are used on top of the existing seat coverings. This is a complex job depending on the model and make of the car and must be carried out by experienced professionals only. At Karlsson, once an order is placed the leather hides are marked, cut, and sewn as per the original design templates of the specific model of the car while ensuring the custom design choice. Subsequently, on the day of the installation, the seats and door pads are first removed by our skilled installers. The existing soft coverings are removed and replaced with custom leather covers. The fitment of the custom seat covers is directly on the foam and secured as per the contours of the seat. This is one of the reasons why our seat covers are more comfortable and durable than the average slip-on covers. The soft covering on the door pads is also replaced with matching leather. Installation takes about 6 to 8 hours depending on the car.
Our high-quality leather imported from Italy is luxurious to touch and offers superior comfort. The majority of car makers or car seat cover vendors offer cheaper leather to lower prices and increase volume. This compromises the feel & durability. Karlsson is a luxury boutique business that custom makes & sells directly to end-users. While choosing the leather in the aftermarket, make sure that you pay attention to the feel, quality, and thickness of the leather. This is what determines the intrinsic value of your purchase.
