We are proud to offer these Land Rover Series seats that add instant style and comfort to your beloved classic. Our seats are upholstered in genuine Harris Tweed, a strong and stunning wool fabric handwoven on the Outer Hebrides.
At the Autoboerderij we believe that, when it comes to classic Land Rovers, originality is key, but we also recognize the fact that their simplicity makes them a blank canvas for your dreams and ideas. While we are not followers of the chequer plate and ‘chromed modular wheels’ school, we do often fantasize about personalizing our cars. How could we tailor a Series Land Rover to our own taste, but with respect to the character of the vehicle and the people who designed and build it. And how do we make sure that any modification we do is fully reversible, easily?
Harris Tweed Land Rover seats
Enter: Harris Tweed seats. As a huge fan of handmade, artisanal products we adore this sturdy fabric, which is woven on the Isle of Harris, one of the Outer Hebrides, from wool donated by Cheviot and Scottish Blackface sheep. For the purists: tweed is not completely alien to classic Land Rovers, since the last of the Series 3’s were available in ‘County’ specification, which were equipped with seats in grey hounds tooth tweed upholstery.
These County vehicles are quite rare so most of us drive ‘farmer’ specification, which make do with standard vinyl seats and although they do what they are designed for, they are not exactly comfortable or attractive to the eye. They are cold in winter, hot in summer, and add zero charm to an otherwise attractive vehicle. Our Harris Tweed seats are exactly the opposite!
Tailormade, by hand
Every seat (front & rear), set of seats, or rear bench is made to order to your own taste and specification. Should you wish, we can provide Land Rover Series x Harris Tweed seats in many designs (tartan, plain, hounds tooth or herringbone pattern) and colours. If you provide us with the colour of your car, we are happy to advise you on which Harris Tweed suits your vehicle best.
Land Rover Series x Harris Tweed seats are handmade in Europe. The wool is woven in Scotland and our seats are upholstered by a professional sewing department in the Netherlands, NOT by children in a factory in Bangladesh. We can reupholster your existing seats, provide reupholstered used or new seats or make covers for used or new seats.
All Land Rover Series x Harris Tweed seats are made to order, to your own preferred specification. Current waiting time for the seats is approx. 2-3 weeks. For possibilities and prices, please send us an e-mail: email@example.com or a whatsapp to Ronald: +31 6 51553097
