Coverking Custom Fit Seat Covers

About Coverking

Coverking was formed in 1989 as a dash cover company.   At the time, dash cover manufacturers took almost a month to deliver a custom dash cover!  Ordering was extremely difficult because there were six different size/price categories.  Not all models were offered - only the best selling vehicles.   Color selection was limited to 6 basic colors, and only one fabric was offered.   In addition, the inferior blind stitch was used and the prices were actually higher than today.

By pioneering advanced CAD/CAM (computer aided design/manufacturing) systems, Coverking changed all that.  Coverking's products are made within 24 hours, color selection is near 20 in 2 fabrics, the superior zigzag stitch was adopted, one price category was formed, and prices came down.  In addition, Coverking achieved ISO-9001 and QS-9000 quality standards, has become a leading OEM supplier in it's product lines, and continues to add patterns to an already enormous pattern library.  Coverking has continued to innovate by introducing the molded dash cover and other accessories.

The Best Fitting Custom Seat Covers Available

Seat Covers have been available for decades, serving to protect the original seats from damage, cover up existing damage, or to provide a new texture material for the user.

As the major automotive manufacturers have introduced new luxury seats and seats with integrated airbags, the traditional one-size-fits-all seat covers don't fit. Coverking has a solution - Coverking Ultimate Tailored Fit Custom Seat Covers.

What's Important in a Custom Seat Cover?

Custom Seat Covers are available from dozens of manufacturers and thousands of distributors. There are vast differences in the look, fit, construction, price and even what is included with the various Custom Seat Cover programs on the market. Hopefully, every manufacturer produces a product they feel is the best. Coverking is passionate about it's Custom Seat Cover program, the results of which are illustrated below.

When buying Custom Seat Covers, one should consider the following areas: Pattern Design, Material, and Construction. Consider the Return Policy, Pricing, and Customer Feedback of the retailer.

Pattern Design

What does "Custom" really mean? Because there is no governing body over "Custom Auto Accessories", companies are free to classify their products as anything they would like them to be. Coverking's definition of a Custom Seat Cover is a product which will fit a vehicle's seats so well that many people will mistake them for original upholstery. The fit is dependant on the pattern, and Coverking invests a lot in their patterns. With a full time staff of professional pattern makers and advanced computer aided design (which was pioneered in the custom auto accessory field be Coverking 20 years ago), Coverking has the tools to assure a consistent, perfect fit. All Coverking Custom Seat Cover patterns are CAD designed from the original vehicle seat using sophisticated software. The process of making a Custom Seat Cover pattern takes upwards of 3 weeks but results in a near replica of the original seat upholstery. In some ways, the Pattern Design of Custom Seat Covers is an art - conflicting qualities of ease of installation vs. fit have to be balanced to produce a product which fits very well but can also be installed and removed by a layman. Very complex patterns are also time consuming to sew, resulting in added product cost. Coverking has addressed these issues throughout it's 20 year history and lives up to our product description - A fit many people will initially mistake for original upholstery, with installation of 30 minutes or less.


There is no single material which is perfect for all conditions! Just as you wear different clothing based on the temperature and activity, Custom Seat Covers should be offered in different materials based on the use and budget of the customer. Coverking offers Custom Seat Covers in several materials and colors. If you would like, a sample swatch ring of material can be sent to you free of cost.

Unfortunately, well paid and happy employees often mean an expensive product. Coverking uses technology and automation to keep prices down, quality up and happiness high. A heavily computerized production area optimizes every operation and results in superior quality at prices often associated with third-world labor. Coverking Custom Seat Covers are made to install easily and fit perfectly by using appropriate stitching machines, hooks, elastic and other tools to do the job right. No shortcuts are taken by trying to use only one kind of sewing operation, or skimping on attachments.
