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.

How is carbon leather made??
A. Very Poorly
B. To Fade on drivers door, if you rest your knee on it
C. With 100% Organic Carbon Fiber
D. Excess shavings from the carbon fiber roof, aggregated into interior accents.

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.
