Leather Seats vs Cloth

Leather Seats vs Cloth

Having leather seats in your vehicle as apposed to cloth is a great idea. But why? Well, leather has a number of qualities that make it a better alternative to cloth. Some of them might surprise you!

Leather can actually save you money in the long run!

Leather is much easier to maintain than cloth seats, which means less money spent on detailing! It is also more long-lasting than cloth, so you likely won’t have to spend much on repairs or re-upholstery, at least for quite a while. Vehicles with leather-trimmed interiors also have a greater resale value!

Leather is easier to clean than cloth

Because liquids don’t soak into leather, it is much easier to clean than cloth! Instead of having to get your cloth seats shampooed every so often, simply wipe your leather down with a damp cloth, or use a leather cleaner, to make sure everything is nice and fresh. Be sure to avoid chemicals that are too strong, as they could damage your seats! Stains are much easier (and cheaper) to remove from leather than from cloth fabrics–so don’t feel bad about spills on those beautiful new seats!

Heating & Cooling Compatibility

Something different about leather is, if you opt for perforation, it allows for heating and cooling components, whether they’re factory or aftermarket. Nothing beats turning on your seat-heaters in the winter on chilly day, or throwing on the seat-coolers in the heat of the summer. This is something you just can’t get with cloth seats!

Leather is Durable & Long Lasting

Leather is much more resistant to wear and tear than cloth seats. Cloth can get ripped or misshapen easily with everyday use. Leather on the other hand is much more durable and will hold its shape for years to come.

It Has a Luxurious Look & Feel

There’s no denying that leather looks great. Leather is a high-end material that can add a sense of sophistication and refinement to any vehicle, making your car, truck, or SUV stand out from the rest.
