Toray Industries of Japan was the first company to successfully create ultra-microfibers. They then perfected the manufacturing process that transformed the microfibers into an amazing fabric; a non-woven material that combined luxury with unprecedented performance. This remarkable fabric became trademarked as ultrasuede®, a material that combines the rich aesthetics of a suede surface with benefits no animal product could ever offer. ultrasuede® is soft, supple and sensuous to the touch. Yet it’s also resistant to stains and discoloration. It’s even machine washable and dry-cleanable.
What makes this material so unique? It begins with ultra-microfibers so fine that they can not be seen by the human eye. In fact, these fibers are so microscopically minute that a single pound of them could be stretched from the earth to the moon-and back! Obviously, transforming ultra-microfibers this fine into a practical fabric demands an incredibly complex, multi-patented manufacturing process. To support this fabric and process, Toray maintains one of the worlds most advanced R&D facilities of its kind anywhere in the world.
