Thanks for the link.

Is there any aftermarket product for cleaning? I visited the site and the instruction only told me to use sponge and brush it lightly with water, then comb it softly with a brush. Anything like a protectant etc would be great.

I went to the site and I still don't understand what the heck it is. Is it fake suede? Looks like that stuff they use to make synthetic sport jackets. (Also looks like something Porsche would use and then make us guess what it is -- like the covering on the standard 987 steering wheel.)
