Initially established to manufacture sheepskin seat covers Easirider very quickly added Lambswool Over Rugs to our production portfolio. Traditionally found mainly in Rolls-Royce & Bentley we set about making them available for owners of all marques. They became, and remain, our principal activity.
The Easirider Company was formed in 1971 by Peter Robinson.
Peter had been travelling through Europe and discovered the superb comfort that sheepskin offers as an upholstery material. On his return to the UK he found it impossible to buy sheepskin seat covers locally so he set about finding a suitable tannery and persuaded them to prepare appropriate sheepskins so that he could make his own.
Soon, friends and neighbours and their friends and neighbours started to ask where they could buy them. Before long business reached a point where Peter decided to leave his job and set up a dedicated company specialising in sheepskin for the car.
In 1976 Charles Afford and Christine Fisher joined Easirider and they still form the back-bone of the company.
Very few things have encouraged universal enthusiasm as much as the motor vehicle. We have customers from all walks of life in every corner of the globe and the one thing they have in common is the enjoyment they derive from their cars.
Easirider make rugs for specialist car manufacturers, restorers, dealers and owners throughout the world.
WHAT WE DO
Ours is a Bespoke Service.
Your rugs will be made for your specific car and you will be able to choose from an extensive colour range.
Premium quality fleeces are cut to shape, backed with automotive industry fabric and padded with cushioning wool needle-felt.
Drivers’ rugs include a shoe friendly quilted black natural leather heel pad stitched in black (it can be left off if you prefer).
We normally box quilt the heel pad in six or eight sections dependant on size of rug.
We can also offer smaller or diamond box quilting and contrast colour stitching on request.
For owners of MPW and HJM cars we can incorporate Heavy Duty Moulded pads which are rivetted into place
Wherever possible we try to incorporate the type of fixing used by the specific car manufacturer.
When this is not possible we will use generic type fasteners (please note that with some earlier cars it is not possible to use any fasteners – we will be happy to provide you with advice).
Our overugs are always shipped using trackable services provided by companies like UPS, PARCELFORCE, DHL & DPD.
A visit to our ACCESSORIES page will show you our range of associated sheepskin products such as Lambswool Wash Mitts, footrests, cushions and storage bags.
In addition we can supply flame tested & certified fleeces which are suitable for use on aircraft seating.
