Leather Seats May Become Rare As Nappa Leather Runs Short

Saturday, 12. November 2011

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

There’s nothing nicer than to plant your bottom on a nice bit of soft leather. The feel and the smell is just wonderful – I’m sure you agree. Just me then eh! Anyway, if you like a bit of quality premium Nappa leather covering your seats you may be in for a bit of a shock soon with the increased cost of Nappa over standard, bum itching leather. It follows warnings from the UK’s number one Nappa leather supplier, Bridge of Weir, who have advised that there is a serious shortage of quality hides from which Nappa is made. It would seem that sales of this premium leather has soared as many car makers offer it as an option even on some of the most modest of cars.

Nappa leather sales have risen by 50% over the last 5 years according to sales director, Jamie Davidson. Unfortunately, according to Davidson, only 20% of the bull hides supplied are sufficiently blemish free to be turned into Nappa.

The problem is that even cars like the Audi A1 city car now have a Nappa leather option so expect prices to rise considerably in the near future if the trend continues and supply doesn’t increase. Not just me then! By Graham Hill
