To achieve the elasticity level needed to create the perforations, we treat the flesh side of the leather with a finish and let it dry. We then place the finished leather parts on the machine along the perforation line and add the design methodically and precisely. Quality is our only option, and we guarantee our perforation workmanship will drastically improve the way your leather product looks, feels, and functions.

FAQs About Perforated Leather

One of the many products we offer here at IPS Perforating, Inc. is perforated leather. Below, we will go over the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about this material to help you decide if it is right for your project.

What is perforated leather used for?
Perforated leather can be used for almost any application where ordinary leather would be called for—it can be used to make shoes, purses, and many other items. In particular, perforated leather is especially popular as an upholstery material, and especially as a material for automotive upholstery. The only projects where it would be unwise to use perforated leather in place of solid is when the finished product needs to be waterproof.
What are the benefits of perforated leather?

The main advantage of perforated leather over standard leather is that the material is more breathable. Air is able to circulate around and through the holes, which creates a cooling effect that increases comfort. For example, sitting on standard leather seats on a long drive can leave you swimming in sweat, but sitting on perforated leather seats will keep you much cooler. Another benefit of perforated leather is that it provides more traction, which means people are less likely to slide around on a perforated automotive seat.

How should I take care of my perforated leather?
To keep your perforated leather in good condition, you will need to clean it regularly. Our team recommends using a vacuum hose to remove any dirt that has become trapped in the holes, then wiping the whole thing down with a microfiber cloth and a specialized leather cleaner.

At IPS Perforating, Inc., we offer perforated leather for customers in the United States and Canada.

Why Choose IPS Perforating, Inc.?

At IPS Perforating, Inc., we improve the quality of many types of materials with our exceptional, precise perforating services.

Today, perforations are used for heat and cool seating for automobiles, interior design, home movie theatres, filtration, acoustical treatments, and graphics on aircraft and windows.
