First developed in 1970 by Toray Industries scientist, Miyoshi Okamoto, Ultrasuede® still stands as the finest sustainable alternative for animal hide suede even 50 years on since its inception. Going beyond just function in fashion, Ultrasuede® is notoriously common as upholstery for automobiles and even airplanes.
Aesthetically almost identical to actual suede, the merit of Ultrasuede® is that it does not discolor or stain, and can even be washed in a conventional home washing machine. Furthermore due to its weave composition, it is resistant to fraying or piling even with extended wear.
