What are the hides used to upholster the cars interiors? The most used hides for cars upholstering are the bovine ones. They are available in ranges of different colours and processing: in black, beige, red, blue so on and so forth. For those that instead wish to have a real unique car there is the possibility to upholster the car seats with high quality skins, as for example those of snakes and crocodiles.

How to choose them?

How can we choose the most suitable hides for our own car?  Obviously a lot depends from your personal taste and from the colours of the car. A car that has dark exteriors could possibly need clear hides and vice versa. However it will be necessary to think about the functionality of the upholsters: clear hide seats, in fact, have the tendency to get dirty easily and need more maintenance. Those too dark, instead, can warm up quite easily when hit by the sun rays. Red seats can look tacky on cars that are not luxurious ones. In order to be sure about acquiring quality leather, always favour full grain leather: it is the best one from an aesthetic point of view and also the strongest one over time.
