Quality & Luxury

Leather will always provide timeless appeal. No other medium can match the superior texture, durability or level of comfort that leather provides. The softness, warmth and aroma of the finest leathers will not only enhance and retain the value of your vehicle, it will actually guarantee a superior level of motoring comfort and enjoyment.
Plastic, fabric and leather substitutes undoubtedly have their place, but there remains no substitute for leather’s natural warmth, softness and remarkable ability to improve with age.

Today leather is available in an impressive array of colours and textures allowing the discerning customer to rediscover the authentic qualities of one of the world’s most desirable natural materials. Once you experience leather, you will realise forever that there is no substitute.

Blackman’s was founded in 1950 by Alan Blackman in the backyard of his East Bentleigh home. Alan recognised a need for Motor trimming in the area and put his skills to use taking on repairs and restoration work.

Blackman’s leather interiors was born. He quickly procured a factory in East Bentleigh until his retirement. At this stage, Blackman’s began to see a need for aftermarket leather in new vehicles for dealerships. From this point on, Blackman’s have continued to grow and be at the forefront of the industry.

Blackman’s can also provide aftermarket leather kits (a manufactured to ordered kit that is ready to be installed at any motor trimming factory in Australia).

This facility has increased Blackman’s manufacturing capabilities and helped Motor Trimmers across Australia increase their ‘bottom line’ by reducing the amount of time previously spent on patterning and manufacturing an interior.

Today, Blackmans work from

•    A trimming and manufacturing shop at 49-51 Cochranes Rd Moorabbin, Victoria specialising in new  and used cars
•    A repair centre at 6 Nelson Rd Rd, Moorabbin, Victoria
