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

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.
