Leather enrichments help showcase the personality of a vehicle brand. Welding, quilting and perforation can all offer subtle – or dramatic – looks and dimension to the vehicle’s leather interior, while embracing other design details such as tone or contrast. Additionally, supporting our customer and supplier teams from concept through production helps to minimize cost and time - and maximize design impact.
From large repeating design elements to custom shapes and sizes, our ability to execute a broad range of perforation options is part of our DNA. Our design elements drive the unique aesthetics that help to differentiate each customer’s vehicle brand identity.
The embossed design of our 3D embossing process provides definition and depth to leather. It can be layered or combined with different technologies to achieve desired design aesthetics.
