Q: I see you have N.O.S. fabric featured on your site… what is it?

A: We now offer N.O.S. fabric, which stands for New Old Stock. This is fabric which the car manufacturers produced (or purchased) when the car was originally made.


These are new materials, in the sense that they have never been used in a car, exposed to the elements, or cut from their original bolts of cloth. But they are called “old stock” because it is the original material which may have been made in the 50s, 60s, 70s, or 80s.


There are very limited quantities of N.O.S. fabric and seat cloths materials available. And when it’s gone, it’s gone! Barring time travel, it will not be possible to obtain more of the actual original fabric which is contemporary to your car’s original model, if you want to restore your classic car's original material.


For those collectors and devotees who want to restore their car’s interior fabric to the factory original, N.O.S. fabric is the clear choice. If you don’t see the car or the fabric you’re looking for, please contact us to ask.

With high quality products and considerate service, we will work together with you to enhance your business and improve the efficiency. Please don't hesitate to contact us to get more details of Automobile Textiles.
