The material was received quickly and in good shape. It's easy to work with, so we're happy with the purchase so far. We'll see how well it holds up to everyday wear.

Faux Leather by Ottertex for 1952 Packard seats

The faux leather was very pliable yet strong enough to stretch in just the right ways to make completing restoration of the seats in a 1953 Packard. It was a pleasure seeing even French Seams that were easy to stitch across several plies of materials.

Sample Order, Great Quality not the right color

Sample arrived in a short turnaround time. Quality is great for a swatch. The color wasn't exactly what I needed.
