Using leather in car interiors has become a luxury due to its fabulous appearance and feel. But Bentley has expressed that this material could be life-threatening towards animals.

As a result, Bentley has announced plans to use animal-friendly materials in future models. 

The growing vegan customer-base was what inspired this possibility, and Stefan Sielaff (Bentley's director of design) says, "you can't sell an animal-containing product like a Bentley, with 20 leather hides, to someone with a vegan lifestyle". 

He added that, together with Milliner, Bentley would present a vegan interior made with protein leather, mushroom leather and possibly jellyfish material (although this is still an animal). 

There is no estimated date of arrival for these new, vegan-friendly interior, models just yet. But the design, colour and trim guys are interrogating the matter.
