Debunking interior leather myths

Sophisticated drivers enjoy their cars’ performance and quality interior leather. Leather is comfortable, stylish, makes a classy statement. However, many drivers may shy away from this remarkable natural material due to myths about interior leather.

Interior leather finishes are only for the wealthy

While leather may be slightly more expensive than most fabric interiors, a leather interior will outlast a cloth interior by far. As such, a leather interior can be considered an investment. Most high-quality goods indeed have a bigger price tag because they are more durable and withstand wear and tear better. Since cloth interiors should be replaced every few years, a leather interior will offer longevity.

This long-term investment allows you to purchase good quality leather because it will save you money in the long run. In addition, a leather interior helps to retain your car value if you decide to sell it later.

So, you don’t have to be wealthy for a stylish and comfortable leather interior. And a good leather interior is physically and visually pleasing.

Leather’s quality is fleeting

Interior leather, like most quality leather, is anything but fragile. It’s durable and stretchy, unlike fabric that offers no resistance. A natural leather interior is resistant to most external factors.

Leading suppliers like Philton Autotrim offers full-grain leather that is strong and low maintenance. As a result, the quality won’t diminish over time.

A leather interior is high maintenance.

Most leather interiors mature beautifully, and they should instead be left to come into character naturally. In addition, any detergent and resins will ruin the leather and shorten its lifespan. Since leather is inherently water-resistant, it’s easy to clean. Simply wipe spills with a damp cloth and vacuum up crumbs and debris.

A leather interior damages easily

Leather is tough, durable, and resistant to harsher conditions, pets, and kids. It’s unlikely that a leather interior will tear or fail. Thanks to its insulation qualities, the leather retains its natural oils that contribute to protecting the material.

In addition, being liquid and stain resistant, a leather interior will ensure a long-lasting classic look.
