Leather seats with cloth sides?

This is a quite random question...
Is there a reason behind Ford not fully wrapping their seats in
leather/vinyl? I have always owned Ford/Lincoln/Merc products and most
have cloth on one side of the seat. Just curious, likely a cost cutting
thing... but I would think they could just as economically wrap it in
the "pleather" vinyl.
Thanks,
Joe

Re: Leather seats with cloth sides?

Our '02 Explorer EB has std leather seats. The front bucket seats have cloth
on the sides facing the center console. Remember, cloth will not squeak
against the plastic console, and the vinyl on the outside sides is less
costly than leather.
