Sustainable Fabrics

Fiber Wall

  • Fiber Wall was designed to combine properties such as high structural stiffness, light transmittance, and the appearance of natural fiber. In its final form, Fiber Wall functions as a self-bearing, translucent space divider.


  • Ingeo derives its fiber from corn, an annually renewable resource. Bacterial fermentation is used to convert corn from a starch to a sugar and then to polylactic acid, which in turn is processed like most thermoplastics into fiber. Ingeo is a closed loop sustainable product: the natural origins of the polymer allow it to be safely biodegraded at the end of its useful life.

Xtreme Leather

  • Xtreme is an extremely hard-wearing leather that can withstand attacks from all the usual suspects such as dirt, chlorine, disinfectants, mould, oil, alcohol and ultraviolet radiation. In everyday use, this leather has also demonstrated exceptional durability. You can choose from 40 different colours finished in 4 different surface structures.

Solanyl Colour

  • Solanyl® BP color is based on a side stream starch of the potato processing industry. It is fully colourable using a biodegradable masterbatch. Production of Solanyl® requires 65% less energy compared to polyethylene production. The granules can be used to combine with natural fibres as well as being blended with other biopolymers.It is a patented and commercially available smart material which is bio based and biodegradable. It is possible to adapt mechanical properties of the product to meet specific end-product requirements by blending the material with other biomaterials.


  • Tyvek® is a water resistive barrier material manufactured by DuPont, which combines strength, protective properties and high vapor permeability. Offers the best characteristics of paper, film, and fabric in one material. 100% recyclable.
