Answer: Katzkin is the nation’s premier manufacturer of custom leather seat replacement covers.
This is not a slipcover. Katzkin leather interiors completely transform the look and feel of your vehicle’s interior. The factory cloth (in some cases leather) is removed from your front and rear seats and replaced with your new Katzkin interior. This sometimes also includes the door panels and center console covering (depending on the vehicle). As a general rule: if it has cloth on it, you will receive the parts to replace it with your kit.
- Katzkin is not simple, easy to install slipcovers. Professional installation is recommended.
- We do not sell seats, just the material to cover them!

Answer: A seat cover simply slips over over your current seat, often resulting in a loose or wrinkled look. Katzkin is way more than a seat cover. It is a precisely engineered automotive premium interior that completely replaces the cloth in your vehicle, including all seating surfaces, plus any center consoles or door panels (unless they are covered with hard plastic or vinyl). When professionally installed, Katzkin interiors meet or exceed the fit and finish of a factory leather interior.

Katzkin uses only Premium automotive leather. It is top-grain aniline-dyed leather, produced in Brazil from hand-selected hides of local origin. This industry-leading Premium leather receives a special retannage which enriches the leather and tightens the grain structure. A correction process then refines the surface of the leather, preparing the material for grain enhancement during the finishing process.
Katzkin Premium leather features a durable protective finish that is impregnated into the leather, becoming an integral part of the material. This unique recipe for tanning and finishing results in a superior hand and a smooth surface touch. Katzkin Premium leather has been tested extensively to confirm that it meets or exceeds industry specifications for use in automotive interiors.
Katzkin Barracuda is a unique preparation of Premium leather, providing a striking visual effect. In production, the leather is aniline dyed, with rich colorful dyes that fully penetrate the leather. Barracuda is then finished with a solid (usually black) protective finish. Finally, the leather is perforated with a square-shaped perforated design, revealing the rich contrasting dye color around the edges of the perforated squares. Barracuda adds an element of drama and sophistication to any application.
Katzkin Suedezkin is a luxury microfiber suede that is made primarily from recycled polyester fiber and is 100% recyclable. It meets the most stringent requirements of the automobile industry for luxurious, timeless beauty, as well as the needs of the most demanding drivers for comfort, elasticity, and breathability.
Katzkin synthetic materials are designed to complement the leather. They are proven to be stain resistant, easy to clean, durable, antimicrobial, and antibacterial resistant. These materials are soft and supple to the touch and available in matching colors for Katzkin's Premium leather.
Answer: Katzkin uses premium automotive leathers and synthetics, which are designed to meet or exceed the quality of the leather interior option offered by the manufacturer. These leathers have received a protective treatment during the tanning process, which will protect the grain from the soiling and staining of everyday use.
For Spots and Spills: Blot excess liquid immediately with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. If necessary, use clear, lukewarm water and gently wipe the spill. If water is used, clean the entire area where the spill occurred. Dry with a clean towel and allow to air dry. Do not dry wet areas with heat dryers, hairdryers, etc. as this will damage the leather.
For Stubborn Spots and Stains: Use a mild solution of Ivory bar soap and clear, lukewarm water. Apply the soap to a clean wet sponge and blot the affected area. Do not apply force or pressure, as the heat and friction of rubbing will damage the leather. Rinse and allow to air dry naturally.
DO NOT USE: Any Saddle soaps, oils, abrasives, cleaners containing detergent (such as dishwashing liquids), solvent-based cleaners (such as mineral spirits), varnish or ammonia water or silicone-based products as these types of cleaners will cause damage to the protective top coat of the leather and may void your warranty. Your leather has already been preserved in the tanning process and needs no maintenance other than the simple cleaning recommended.
The synthetic material in the seats may be cleaned using the above methods.
