- Bentley’s unique Diamond-in-Diamond quilting offers unique interior personalisation option for customers
- Each diamond requires 712 stitches, mastered by a specially-commissioned machine, to achieve the pattern
- Exclusive design concept created as part of the Mulliner Driving Specification for the new Continental GT and GTC
- Diamond-in-Diamond Quilting proves so popular it is now reinterpreted in a fresh style for the new Flying Spur
With an exact 712 stitches per diamond, Bentley’s striking Diamond-in-Diamond Quilting pattern for the interiors of the new Continental GT and Continental GT Convertible models is now ordered by three-quarters of all customers, as part of the Mulliner Driving Specification.
The Diamond-in-Diamond Quilting requires a high level of skill to produce and has a complex design story and manufacturing process. The pattern can be commissioned for all four seats, door casings and rear quarters. It is soft to the touch and truly stunning in appearance when viewed from both the inside and outside of the cars. Combining intricate stitching and embroidery, the unique quilting concept features a grid of elegant diamonds.
Initially designed for the Continental GT and GTC, the Diamond-in-Diamond concept adds a more sporting look to the cars’ interior, alongside the other elements of the Mulliner Driving Specification: 22” lightweight forged alloy wheels, embroidered Bentley emblems, additional veneer options, a jewelled-finish fuel filler, sports pedals and indented leather headliner.
A new quilting interpretation, inspired by the Diamond-in-Diamond technique is now being rolled out for Bentley’s new Flying Spur, launched in 2019. The new design features an elegant series of ever-lengthening diamonds tumbling down the seat, in precise yet seemingly random formation – this new technique uses the same machinery as the original Diamond-in-Diamond pattern.
