Ultrafabrics expands its innovative Volar Bio range with six new colours
Ultrafabrics, the world’s leading animal-free fabric manufacturer, introduces a bold new range of colours in its Volar Bio range.
The six new colours are inspired by the earth’s surface, and complex shades that reference organic dye sources: Indigotin, Matcha, Spinach, Porcini, Pitch Black and Café Noir.
Popular with brands such as Herman Miller, Jaguar Land Rover, Airstream, Gulfstream and United Airlines, Ultrafabrics continues to show its commitment to building a more sustainable future – incorporating renewable plant-based materials into the multiple layers of unique product construction. A first of its kind, the collection includes corn by-product and wood pulp materials to create a 29% biobased leather alternative that is suitable for upholstery, vertical surfaces and fashion.
Crafted in Japan, the natural-feeling surface means it can be used to upholster anything from residential furniture to commercial-bases surfaces in offices, hospitality, retail or healthcare. Ultrafabrics products can withstand serious, frequent cleaning to C.D.C standards and are sought- after solutions where post-Covid hygiene is a priority. This fabric can also withstand bleach without losing its colour or altering its appearance. The fabrics are also suitable for use for vegan interiors.
Ultrafabrics aims to pioneer innovative materials that conserve resources and protect the wellbeing of people, animals and the planet, and Volar Bio marks the beginning of the company’s dedicated journey towards a sustainable future. By 2025, the Ultrafabrics goal is to include bio-based ingredients and/or recycled content in 50% of new product introductions. By 2030, that goal will increase to 100%, with existing collections evaluated along the way. The brand is addressing sustainability from all aspects including product quality, material innovation and transparency.
