Alcantara Uses

Alcantara is a vastly popular material for both customers and upholsterers to use, there is a wide variety of uses for the material. Whilst we are the sole UK distributor of automotive Alcantara, we can recommend the material for the following:

Steering wheels

We've seen many great steering wheels upholstered in Alcantara by our customers, which has looked great with a contrast stitch, to really liven up the already prestigious look of Alcantara. 

Headlinings

Upholstering an automotive headlining in Alcantara has been a staple of luxury cars for decades, to add to the luxurious look of the car itself. 

Seating

Alcantara cover/seating is a different quality of Alcantara which uses a cotton backing to help endure harsher impact environment. 

Door Panels

Upholstering the accents of door panels in Alcantara can give an up-market feel to any automotive project. 

Although we've only listed a few uses for Alcantara, don't let this stop you being creative and finding other uses for the material!
