no its from cows that have a diet of carbon fiber. It's a new thing now in the cattle industry. pure fiber injected with nano-carbon particles. It not only strengthens their fallopian tubes but also makes for some really, really full-of shit reading

Not buying it, linking to an aftermarket DIY isn't telling us what ours actually is.

It's embossed leather. Raw carbon fiber fabric will not hold up.

In some thread I read that the carbon patterned part was vinyl and the trim strips were leather. To really find out, someone would have to do a cross section.
