The average leather hide is 48 to 55 square feet. Fabric, or vinyl, or anything else (other than leather) is measured by the running yard, which is 54" tall and 36" wide. That makes a leather hide about equal to three yards of vinyl, including the waste factor.

A bench seat and rear seat, done in leather, will take about 2 1/2 to 3 hides.

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