We recently purchased thousands of rolls of original retro/vintage auto upholstery dating from the 50s to the 80s. There is a huge variety of different kinds of fabric in the lot. Many of them (though not all) are appropriate for general upholstery.
This piece would work for general upholstery though it doesn't have a lot of give.
I don't know what car that this was originally made for though I believe that it is the 1980s. It is a plush red striped velvet that is 58 inches wide.
If you are interested in this fabric, please don't hesitate to request a sample. We send samples out promptly and at no charge.
