  • Cattle leather is one of the most demanded raw materials in the light industry. The quality of tannery pelt product manufacturing depends on the quality of leather processing. The professionally handled skin, and, in particular, cow leather represents the upholstery tannery material with such qualities as:
    • flexibility;
    • durability;
    • uniformity.
  • Result of a unique, proprietary technology, Alcantara® is a thoroughly avant-garde material with aesthetic, technical and sensory qualities that no other material can equal.

    Made by a sophisticated industrial process with no rivals – the recipe is still a secret – Alcantara embodies the new paradigm of the contemporary lifestyle typical of those who search, in the products they use every day, besides functionality, also the emotion of beauty, respecting ethics and the environment.
