Made to Measure:
Working with Ruskin Design

At Arkonik, we work with carefully selected suppliers to kit out our restorations with the highest quality products inside and out. Ruskin Design® have adopted a ‘fashion house’ approach to vehicle upholstery and we work with them for this very reason. With a large range of leather types and finishes, each interior created is bespoke and unique to its owner.


These interiors lean towards a connection to nature with earthy tones in browns and greys, complementing carefully chosen exterior body colours often from the original Land Rover range. Below, HERITAGE D110 is trimmed in a dappled grey Manuscript Vintage Thatch, perfectly paired with cream suede headlining.

Our Urban Editions are a mixture of sleek and dark or bold and bright combinations to match their environments. RENEGADE is a D110 with attitude and includes Elite Sports seats trimmed in super-soft black leather for an elegant finish.

For our adventure bound Defenders, it’s all about durability. These interiors have been trimmed with Ruskin Inside™ Auto Grain or Smooth Nappa leather which is impregnated with additional treatments and finishes to make them the most hard-wearing within our current range. These treatments give them a higher tensile strength for added flexibility which is also more resistant to UV light.
