Ultraleather Volar Bio by Ultrafabrics

A hybrid by design, this exciting collection incorporates renewable plant-based materials

24/09/2019 1 min read

Dedicated to reducing dependency on finite resources, Ultraleather | Volar Bio is the first of its kind and signifies a new direction for Ultrafabrics. A hybrid by design, this exciting collection incorporates renewable plant-based materials into the multiple layers of Ultrafabrics’ proprietary construction and has achieved a 29% BioPreferred Program Label.

Volar Bio combines subtle organic texturing with a semi-lustrous base. The uniquely matte surface will add a touch of understated elegance to any setting, while the colour palette has been selected to offer a sense of calm, taking inspiration from the healing powers of minerals.

Ultrafabrics aims to pioneer innovative materials that conserve resources and protect the wellbeing of people and the planet. 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. We can applaud that.
