Lexus leather as you’ve never seen it before

We pride ourselves on our ability to Create Amazing, and what better way to do this than to make a designer dress from our cars’ leather?

Lexus cars are engineered to deliver hundreds of thousands of miles of service, witnessing occupants climbing in and out and sitting in its luxurious interior thousands of times in its lifespan. That’s why we’re committed to using the best materials which still feel special even after many years of use.

We collaborated with Guardian Labs on a series of digital and print features which focus on amazing craftsmanship.

As part of this, we commissioned award-winning leatherworker, Úna Burke, to design a high-fashion leather dress made from luxurious Lexus seat leather.

Speaking about the project, Úna said: “Lexus commissioned me to create a piece that was really unique from the leather they use in their CT car.”

“My first point of contact for every project is always my leather and my tools. Lexus leather is quite a bit softer than other leathers that I’ve worked with… worn on the body, it was more flexible”.

Lexus leather is not just luxurious, but also strong and durable. This is due, in part, to the rigorous testing process we use to ensure that we have the highest quality leather. Find out more about our testing process: The Lexus Hard Way.

    1. Hi Nick,
      This will depend on the Model Year of the UX you will be receiving.
      We would recommend confirming this with your Lexus Centre so we can provide you with accurate information.

        1. Hello Nick,
          Thank you for your reply.
          The Model Year 2022 UX 250h F SPORT comes with F SPORT seats with Fabric/Tahara upholstery.
          Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    1. Hello,
      Thanks for your question.
      The only information we have on record states that your vehicle has leather.
      Based on that, the only assumption we can make is that it’s made from Cow’s Leather.

  4. Can you please confirm that the model year 2023 lexus UX F Sport comes with Tamara (man made) leather. Does this change if you get the premium plus pack with larger 12 inch screen?


    1. Hello Denis, thanks for your question.

      The MY23 UX 250h F Sport comes with Tahara leather. Tahara leather is not available on the Premium Plus Pack.
