Why do we use Alcantara?


If you ever considered complimenting your sophisticated aesthetic with suede accessories, but did not go for it because of suede’s difficulty in maintaining the material or negative environmental footprint, you will be pleasantly surprised with Alcantara!


Alcantara is an Italian avant-garde material that has top-grade aesthetic, technical and sensory qualities rarely found in other materials. 


The appearance and tactile feel of the Alcantara is similar to suede, and it may be erroneously identified as such. Alcantara is superior to suede in functionality and practicality. It is more durable, stain resistant, water resistant, scratch resistant and easy to maintain, making it an excellent choice, not only for us! We share the same passion with companies like Ferrari and Lamborghini.


You may think handling and maintaining this top-grade material involves intricate care procedures. We can assure you that Alcantara is very easy to clean and maintain. The hydrophobic properties ensure the fabric doesn’t absorb dirt and fluid. This gives Alcantara stain-resistant properties and the ability to retain its color.


Last but not the least, there is another reason why we love Alcantara! It is 100% Carbon neutral and non-animal, which gives us a chance to express our gratitude and love towards animals and the planet Earth.
