More than a match
The first step in creating a bespoke interior is to match the colour of the car interior to the artefact our customer will supply - lipstick, tie fabric, artwork, yacht: any colour is possible and Mulliner will match it.
Colour-matching is a complex - and very scientific - process. Rather than relying on the naked eye alone, Mulliner’s craftspeople use state-of-the-art colour recognition software to analyse the composition of the sample – and design dyes that can reliably recreate a chosen hue in the necessary hides and fabrics.
And that’s just the beginning: once the hides have been dyed, they begin a sequence of tests to ensure that, even though they will only ever be used in one, unique, Bentley, they meet the exacting quality and endurance standards to which every Bentley interior must adhere. In fact, bespoke hides will undergo around 60 durability and safety tests before they can be passed for use in a customer's car.
