looking for a place to have a custom made seat

So for my birthday I wanted to do a few things to the bike, im thinking about buying a used seat on ebay, and then taking it to an upholstery shop and having them redo the foam and maybe add some gel.

anyone ever do something like this, i would tackle it myself, I just don't know how to make it look as nice as OEM

im thinking leather would get hot, whats a good material to choose.

There's a place off of 2920 close to dowdel that does great work for a reasonable price.
