Alcantara® is the choice of the most iconic and leading brands in the world because it is very luxurious but also extremely strong and durable yet still being sensual, soft to the touch and breathable. Virtually indestructible and elegant like nothing else makes it impossible to imitate, though many try and fail. It is in a category all of its own and nothing is like genuine Alcantara®
Alcantara® is a unique, innovative material, developed and manufactured through a unique, proprietary technology. It is an extraordinary material due to its aesthetic properties, its softness and comfort and its functionality, with being a breathable material, its ease of maintenance and resistance. Thanks to the combination of these properties Alcantara® covered objects can be used on a daily basis with maximum freedom. Alcantara® s colour palette is very rich and makes it suitable for use with other materials; see the colour cards for the full range.
It is difficult to categorise Alcantara® with existing materials or products due to its properties, usability and its qualities. Any classification would be wrong or provide limitations, Alcantara® is Alcantara®!
