There’s far too much plastic in car interiors these days. At least that was the thought when the expert trimmers of Carlex Design redesigned the cabin of a Volkswagen T5 Multivan. Their mission to “un-plastic” its interior led them to cover nearly every bit of its cabin in either leather or Alcantara.

Carlex Design explains:

Our goal was to “un-plastic” the interior of the vehicle. Gladly we got to work (for we hate plastic!), then a new interior was born! We named it Criollo to honor a rare and one of the most luxurious kind of cocoa. As the colors ideally match the brown color of the cocoa tree and chocolate itself – we immortalized it, engraving the name on a nameplate made of solid piece of brass. The seat base, dashboard, doorsills and side panels on all doors have been covered in brown Alcantara and leather. Although the shape of all the elements was quite challenging and difficult to upholster, the final result is astonishing.

The attention to detail in this project will blow your mind:

    I can appreciate a very detailed and meticulous job…the french seams add a touch of elegance…by the way, it’s not so easy to do this kind of job

    Love the cup holders, now that’s impressive.

    • I’m glad you noticed that, the cup holders stood out to me as well. Now that’s attention to detail. When you take something as frivolous as cup holders and turn it into a work of art. Very few trimmers can pull that off as clean as Carlex did.

    I just starred at those cup holders for 5 minutes
