Working in the early Porsche area for many years I have sourced, reproduced, & manufactured interior materials to factory specification and can supply vinyls, seat materials, OEM leathers, seat foams and original or replacement interior parts for the home or professional restorer.
In my journey for Porsche trimming perfection, I had 50m of “Pepita” houndstooth fabric woven in black & white by a weaver here in the UK.
Although there are some good replacements in the marketplace I couldn’t find one which matched 100% to the original for my customers.
The process started with an original piece of seat fabric sent to the weavers for analysis, they then recreated the pattern, colour and repeat used by the original manufacturer which resulted in an exact reproduction of the original fabric.
Once the fabric had been produced it underwent testing using the “Martindale Test” which resulted in 100,000 rubs (severe contract quality).
The first run of fabric arrived and has since been shipped around the globe to the delight of Porsche owners.
Another 60 metres is now in stock, 20 metres in black & white, 20 metres in red black & white & 20 in blue
One pair of comfort/sport seats will require 2 metres of fabric for the centres and most other seat applications.
Cost is £109 per metre plus UK & worldwide shipping (TBA)
