    Classic Car Restoration at its finest ~ An upholsterer’s love for leather

    John Reumers is a no nonsense guy.

    The sort of guy who will look you right in the eye and squeeze your hand so firmly that if you don’t match it, he will crush your hand.

    So, you know you can trust a bloke like this when he says he loves The Italian Leather Company products. 
    He chooses to buy exclusively from them.

    That is why he chose to use their commercial grade Puccini Cotto leather to fit out his own 1938 Ford Club Convertible.

    A labour of love, John worked on restoring his cherished classic car for over two years. Setting aside his Mondays, he has worked long hours to lovingly bring every aspect of this classic beauty back to life.

    A family owned and run business, Reumers Trim & Upholstery have been fitting out cars, trucks, boats and aeroplanes in the Taranaki region and for over 43 years. 
    They pride themselves on high quality workmanship – quality that is clearly evident on this classic car restoration.

    Cleans and Protects

    “You can’t beat leather, it is a durable and versatile product,” says John. “Some people are scared of it because of the cost but you only have to make a few mistakes and you soon learn.

    It’s the old carpenters’ rule – measure twice and cut once.”

    John has been using The Italian Leather company since its inception in April 2005 having previously used one of its sister companies. 

    Hearing about them through word of mouth, he gave them a try and has never looked back. “Their service and support is great so I buy exclusively from them,” John says. “That, and their range of quality products. Italian leather is a prestige-product and you know you are getting the best.”

    So, when it came to reupholstering the seats, doors and lining of the boot of the Club Convertible, he knew he could find the perfect product in the Italian Leather Company range. 

    Puccini Cotto is a soft yet durable leather in a warm terracotta colour.  It  contrasts perfectly with the bone coloured paint finish while providing comfort and style for many years to come.

    John’s journey is marked by unwavering dedication and a commitment to quality,

    In every stitch and contour his craftsmanship is shown and he has  showcased the timeless elegance and prestige that Italian leather brings to the world of motor trimming.


    The PUCCINI range has a choice of 50 colours.
