go to a ford dealership and have them order you the material, by the yard. theyll have it but its VERY pricey. they can order it cause the dealership doesnt change out seats when they rip, they reupholster it under a private company

go to a upholstery shop then, tell them what you want. they have more resources for fabric. if anything theyll have something that comes close. but honestly, king ranch interior is leather, youre going to spend some money but will be worth it when its done

thats the thing I share a building with a upholstery shop, and im friends with the other upholstery shop , the other shop did some king ranch seats in a bubble chevy and he had to get the material from ford


i dont mind payin for the material but i know the actual cost of leather an its no where near what they are tryin to get @ ford , about triple the price through them

look up sms fabrics or hamptoncoach fabrics. theyll send you samples too. or go to a auto fabric shop and tell them you want leather that matches king ranch, theyll have it

King ranch leather is supposed to mimic saddle leather, I would check with someone who makes saddles, or a leather shop.
