About World Upholstery & Trim

World Upholstery & Trim is a wholly owned division of XKSS Inc., a California corporation. XKSS was formed in 1978 and was initially designed to supply authentic interior parts that were no longer supplied by the original manufacturer.

Today, located in Santa Paula, CA, World Upholstery & Trim is a manufacturer and mail order supplier of soft interior trim products for a wide range of classic and collectable automobiles. One of our primary goals is to perpetuate the originality of interesting automobiles for future generations. Authenticity, originality and information are our primary products. Our company targets professional restorers and do-it-yourself owners not satisfied with trim shop designed interiors. Our inventory fills the needs of a select segment of the upscale automobile market.

World Upholstery only manufactures parts that are either difficult to find from other vendors or parts that are made substandard from other vendors. Most of our products are no longer supplied by the original manufacturer. All products are supplied in original materials when available and are sewn in original designs. Substitutions are only made if original materials are no longer in commercial existence. Years of pattern and product development have given us the knowledge of original material manufacturer and suppliers as well as a large supplier base for manufactured items. We continue to restore our interesting automobiles and develop new products from those restorations.
