We only work with the highest quality, durable materials to create our robust and rugged car seat covers. Our car seat covers are made from the most heavy-duty canvas material, the strongest nylon thread, and the softest cotton drill. 12oz canvas is an extremely durable plain-woven fabric. We chose to manufacture our seat covers from canvas because it is well renowned for its durability. This heavy-duty fabric is made from a blend of polyester and cotton. Cotton drill is a high strength mid weight cloth, which is both abrasion and water resistant. It is also coated with UV protection and rot/mildew resistant finish.
All Rugged Valley products are designed, manufactured, tested and continuously improved by our team in Masterton, New Zealand.
