I didn't mean to offend you. I have a swatch book of Gran Reserva, and it is an excellent fabric that would be a hybrid between vinyl and 100% polyurethane face materials like Ultraleather. Gran Reserva is better than Ultraleather as far as I'm concerned. I would compare it to Symphony and Naugaleather which are very similar except they have a pebble grain like a football. I'm seeing a lot of people who are unhappy with how Ultraleather wears, especially considering how expensive it is. I stopped using Ultraleather type products for seating applications. The object of the tech forums is to help and educate,...... I wasn't trying to criticize, only point out the differences.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
