Have you ever come across a leather that has tiny holes in it? Well, that’s what perforated leather is. Its most commonly used in car interiors as car seat covers. To fulfil the requirements, this leather is dyed followed by a color-protecting spray. You must be familiar with aniline leather, it’s almost the same as perforated leather but that one is too delicate to be used as car seat covers. The coloring used in certain paints makes the leather less breathable. That could be the reason why your car seat covers lose their texture at certain spots.
To cater to that issue, leather is perforated at certain points, meaning that small holes are created that serve the design purpose as well as fix the breathability issue as well. Talking about the car seat covers, they usually come in two textures. One is perforated and the other is smooth. Perforating leather simply involves cutting holes into the leather at regularly spaced intervals and smooth leather means a uniform surface throughout the leather.

How To Clean Perforated Leather?
Perforated leather is quite different from other types of leather. Hence these types of leather car seats or other furniture items need special treatment. Water and sun exposure can damage your leather. UV radiation degrades seats and makes them lose their original color.
When it comes to cleaning them, always be careful and only use the products that are specifically made for perforated leather. Make sure to wipe away any debris or food leftovers quickly. Use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of the dust or other particles at least once a month. To begin the cleaning process, spray the cleaner directly onto the leather, or a piece of cloth and start rubbing it throughout the surface in gentle circular motions. Wipe it off using a dry piece of cloth.
Apply a small amount of leather conditioner followed by a moisturizer to avoid dryness.
