Our very first car made with Banbū Leather raised $275k for charity. Our second showed off at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles!

Once again, it’s made with Banbū Leather, which is crafted from bamboo, yet maintains automotive-level resilience and performance at a fraction of the environmental impact.

While most car interiors are made with leather and petroleum-based vegan leathers, Banbū Leather is a rapidly renewable resource. It has

33% less Global Warming Potential and saves 16,307 gallons of water

in production per car. While Banbū Leather is durable enough to last as long as leather, it can biodegrade in a landfill in less than 250 days at the end of its life. Standard PU takes centuries in comparison.

Nothing goes together like red and plaid. This Tesla Model S Plaid is upholstered in a rich red shade called Serrano, a new color inspired by speed and classic automotive design.
