Breadvan_update_047: Interior upholsterer
One off car interior upholsterer for coachbuilding
Our coachbuilt Breadvan Hommage will feature significant changes to the interior. It was designed inspired by heritage models. Therefore, the design process started at researching 1960 race cars. There is a lot of character in these distinctive gentleman racers. In addition, we looked at trim and materials installed on hand-finished cars of these days. In other words, classic sports cars were very inspirational. However, we do take design liberties. We push our project into the future. For instance, the unique design will boast unique materials and colours. The research done starting the project, will ensure only relevant changes are made. Sjoerd Brouwers is working on the interior. Regarding the bespoke seats design, we chose to pronounce original volumes and proportions. We do not only honour the original Breadvan, but also the base car. Above all, the new design is an enhancement of the original, rather than a complete re-design.
Headrest embroidery for coachbuilt car
The subtle headrest embroidery stands out just enough. The logo is not too big and not too small. The colour of thread used is slightly lighter. This coloured thread thus is complementary. This makes the contrast between the Alcantara and the stitches sufficient rather than strong. The headrests embroidery is depicturing the outline of the Breadvan Hommage. Captured in only a few striking lines embedded in the Alcantara of the seat. Alcantara a beautiful material and relevant for this specific coachbuilt car. It comes straight from the world of racing. The subtle ornamental aspect of the headrest embroidery in the hand-made seats showcase way of working. It is a design exercise of nuance. The simple lines in the logo on the headrest are celebrating the Breadvan Hommage exterior design. An ode through stitching and embroidery.
Leather and Alcantara bespoke car interior upholsterer
The Breadvan Hommage will feature a bespoke interior. Everything will be hand-tailored. Therefore, constructing a new door panel is an important part of the redesign. A lightweight unit will replace the OEM panel. Consequently, these door panels will be minimalistic. Cleaned of clutter. The team will use a unique blend of materials. We will apply black leather and blue Alcantara. Above all, the aim is to achieve a look of sportiness. The leather wrapped base will link with the design of the original Breadvan, for example. We will be using black leather elsewhere too. For instance on the headliner. A special quilted pattern will make a consistent design. Above all, this will blend the different parts harmoniously. We will also cover the newly designed centre stack in leather. The upholsterer will install blue Alcantara inserts in the interior on elements the driver will touch. Components important for their tactile properties.
