Default Side Air Bags how do they work?Re-upholstered LEather

My sister wants to ger her Jetta re-upholstered with leather.

One person said the side Airbags in the seats arent a problem, 1 person said it is.

Wont Side Air Bags just rip through the leather? I mean **** arent those suppose to stop a car? I wouldnt know
