Ultrafabrics announces a colour refresh of its classic Ultraleather collection

Published: 15-May-2024

These additions expand the offering to over 70 choices, ensuring its relevance in today's design landscape and beyond

Ultrafabrics, the world’s finest performance fabric, presents a refresh of one of its best-loved, classic collections, Ultraleather. Recognised for its supple touch, natural grain, and lasting performance, this classic collection has received a contemporary update with 10 fresh shades. These additions expand the offering to over 70 choices, ensuring its relevance in today's design landscape and beyond.

Ultraleather is the ultimate choice for any application. From contract furniture and lounge seating healthcare, RVs, marine, and aviation, Ultraleather’s durability and ease of use unlocks limitless possibilities. The timeless texture and soft touch is what this fabric is known for but it is also bleach cleanable (1:5 bleach/water solution) and incredibly durable [400,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek), 180,000 rubs (Martindale)].

Ultrafabrics has made great strides since Ultraleather launched in 1999 as the top performance fabric brand across 11 markets around the world, including partnerships with brands such as MillerKnoll, Fitbit, Jaguar Land Rover, and Virgin Galactic. This year, Ultrafabrics celebrates its 25th anniversary and a quarter century of inspiration and innovation, with bold sights on a long and inventive future.

Nicole Meier, Director of Branding at Ultrafabrics, says, “The new Ultraleather hues are inspired by the appreciation of colour nuances, otherwise known as colour sensibility. We reflected on the enduring impact artists have had on colour application across design, and we thoughtfully introduce this selection of timeless, yet modern, shades into the Ultraleather palette. In a way, Ultraleather is the ultimate representation of what Ultrafabrics does: we create beautiful, durable fabrics that last. It’s one of our most popular collections so we thought it needed a little colour uplift for the 25th anniversary of the company.”

Sustainability has also come a long way for Ultraleather as it now contains over 50% rapidly renewable resources.

By 2025, all Ultrafabrics collections will include rapidly renewable and/or recycled ingredients. Ultraleather's woven backcloth incorporates TENCEL™ Modal, a man-made cellulosic fiber produced from renewable beech wood.
