Title: Just a question: Pirelli or Perelli?
Post by: Inger-in-Norway on December 13, 2017, 07:59:44 PM
This shop, to which the forum belongs, sell among other things 'Perelli webbing'. When I added it to the webshop, I was told to call it so. I'm wondering if the name should be Pirelli, as I know that there is a big company in Italy by that name, that produce various rubber products. Here in Europe, they are best known for car and motorbike tyres, but in an earlier discussion here some of you were talking about Pirelli webbing. Please take a look at the page http://www.upholster.com/upholstery-supplies/upholstery-webbing/perelli-rubber-webbing.html and compare it to this: http://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/pirelli-webbing . To me, they look the same. Am I right or wrong?

I'm pretty sure it's the same as the tire company. Now you have me wondering.

The brand (of rubber webbing) that is the industry standard is spelled Pirelli.

Pirelli. That's what I have on the '65. Not.

I have never seen the spelling 'perelli'.
