Why Buy From World Upholstery?

World Upholstery & Trim is a pioneer in pre-made replacement upholstery kits. The idea is to provide classic car restorers with "authentic reproductions" of the interior parts of their cars allowing for more genuine restorations that car enthusiasts can enjoy. Our focus is on authenticity, which means paying attention to detail, investing on molds, dyes and embossing machines, and actually doing research to make sure that the products that we make is as close to original as possible. Precision cutting combined with artful handcrafting from experienced sewers produces a final product that is not only authentic, but also very well made.

Even after more than 35 years of reproducing all these seat covers, carpet sets, interior panels, headliners, convertible tops and more, we've never lost sight to our core focus of providing "authentic reproductions" to restorers. We never gave in to the commercialization that pervades the industry and we keep making sure that each of our products, made by hard working Americans, has the high quality and standards that restorers has come to expect from us. And because the company itself is a bonafide car enthusiast, we combine this focus on quality and authenticity with very high standards of customer service. We understand that interior restoration has a lot of twists and turns so we make sure to stand by our customer through the entire process. Our classic car experts has the knowledge to make sure that you are well informed before making any decisions.
