How to distinguish the original from fake?
You can find the car seat covers poorly resembling CANTRA covers on the market. If you care about quality, long term use of car seat covers and you like original branded items, please pay attention to a few important points that distinguish CANTRA products from other car seat covers.
It is a next-gen fastenings. Designed for convenient and reliable installation of car seat covers on both ordinary and electronic types of head restraints. This type of fastenings is made of durable steel, and also has a rotation angle of 180 degrees. The fastenings can withstand a heavy load due to its robust design and will not tear off the car seat cover even under severe tension.
This is the patented design of CANTRA car seat covers. The tab performs a very important role for reliable fixation on the car seat. One of the main advantages is that the tab is a continuation of the main part of the car seat cover, rather than just a sewn detail. Without a doubt, this eliminates the possibility of tearing off the tab even under a severe tension and this ensures maximum fixation of the car seat cover.
Fastenings (under the seat)
In order to fasten the car seat covers under the seat, we use two fixation elements. At first, the car seat cover is fixed with wide tight elastic ribbons which need to be tied with each other, then an additional hardware with a metal hook is added for a solid installation. When the car seat cover is properly installed, it’ll fit the seat like a glove.
Edging is an important element of CANTRA car seat covers. In addition to the aesthetic function of completeness of the product, the car seat cover keeps the necessary shape throughout the entire operation due to properly tailored edging. We use the method of bias binding, plus a double seam - this makes the process of products manufacturing more complicated, but massively increases the quality and appearance.
While experimenting with different types of lining, we found a perfect solution. We use high-quality durable light-colored fabric. The selected material will never dye a light leather even with many years of regular use of car seat covers. Also the lining of CANTRA car seat covers does not slide and perfectly holds a form. Basically, it is really worth looking into the lining of covers when purchasing them. Because this side interacts with the leather of car interior, and therefore it can be irrevocably spoiled by the unfair approach of a manufacturer.
Accuracy / clarity of lines
Each CANTRA car seat cover is manually sewn by a certain seamstress from the beginning to the end; on the back side of the tab there is even a tag of the seamstress who is responsible for the quality of your car seat covers. In addition, our products undergo quality control before packaging, so any defects, imprecision in the performance of work are excluded. We pay attention to every detail, evenness of stitches, correct diamond shape, strict correspondence of sizes and shapes. This can be easily assessed both visually and during usage.
Any embroidery order is considered as a custom order. We know how often such sets are ordered for a gift, so we approach the creation of embroidery as professionally and responsibly as possible. Expensive professional equipment and only high-quality, durable threads, which do not dye clothes, are used in order to create embroidery on our car seat covers. Special attention should be paid to the work of the designer who transfers your ideas into embroidery machine format - to prepare the drawing correctly is 50% of success and we worthily face it out.
