Need matching cognac leather to my 68 mercedes w108

Hello, I was wondering of anyone know where I can go to purchase a portion of leather hide that matches my cognac leather seats in my 68 mercedes 250s.

I need about 3sq ft of it. I got quoted from someone about ordering half a hide which is 25 sq ft if they have it in stock. Which would run me about $200-300. If they don't have anything close that matches I can get it custom marched to pretty much identical but I would have to order a full hide which wound run me about $800ish.

If someone knows where I can go to purchase a portion it would be much appreciated. Here is the color of my interior just I case anyone is wondering.

Thanks

Phillip

Give World Upholstery a shout and see if they would be willing to send you a smaller piece. Good folks

World Upholstery & Trim, American Manufacturer of Car/Auto Upholstery, Carpet, Convertible Tops, Car Seats, Headliners & Door Panel Parts for Classic European Cars like Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Jaguar, Fiat, Ferrari and Alfa Romeo

Alternately, try to find a local leather craft store? There is a big leather supply store here in downtown Portland, must have been there for over 100 years now, but they have plenty of smaller pieces of leather in just about every color you could want. Usually really cheap too.

Thank you for the reference. I sent them a email hopefully they can help me out.

I wish we had a leather craft store aroud my area but we don't. I'm going to go see if we have any maybe a little further out from me.

Thanks for all the help!

Yeah I've actually seen those sets not to long ago. For sure a good deal if you're looking to replace your seats.

I'm actually only look to purchase a small portion of the cognac leather material for a project I have going on. My seats are actually in pretty good condition still. Down the line I want to change it up but not at the moment.

Talk to a auto upholstery shop, they can probably dye a piece for you.
