Default Re: Feeler: Group Buy Replicate Smooth Nappa IMOLA RED Leather

It's Relicate, not Replicate.

His leather is not indistinguishable from OE. He uses US cow hides that have a different texture, scars (barb wire in the US) and pores filled in than Euro hides. The color wasn't 100%, but even OE hides vary depending on production date. However, they are excellent from my samples. We've already been down this road before and canceled because we thought we had a true OE Euro source available. That never happened. As most everyone knows by now, Ian did follow through with an Imola hide purchase for his seats.
