Jaguar XJS - fingers crossed
We know that there are far fewer cars on our roads (and hence in our recycling yards) that contain leather seats. So for us its a case of recruiting a large number of suppliers that will each send us a small volume of material for us to turn into high quality bags.
Its not always easy for a potential supplier to see merit in what we do as it means a small amount of extra work and at the moment whilst there is a positive return for them, its not massive. So when I visited an Authorised Treatment Facility yesterday to chat about our Seatgear project, I was very pleased to be offered two Jaguars from which we could access the material.
There is a catch though, the cars may not still be held (they are at another site) and may already have been destroyed. Hopefully we can locate them, they are still intact and we can access the material which should make some really nice products.
