Our superstar seamstress Kath in our trim shop has been designing and manufacturing a bespoke gear knob for the 1967 Jaguar E-Type Racing car.

She’s use the existing gear knob to create the pattern. “I make sure I leave the thread tails,” explains Kath, “as I’ll use these later to sew them together later.”

“I’ve then put all the pieces together and used those thread tails to sew the pieces together in a crisscross and pull tightly to secure.”

We’re super impressed with the final look. Now it’s time to couple the gear knob with the gear shift gaiter Kath made earlier and this part of Jaguar E-Types restoration is complete!
