Ultrafabrics, a pioneer in the polyurethane synthetic leather industry, has been selected to take part at the curated Future Fabrics Expo that is set to be held at London Olympia Exhibition Centre from 29-30 September 2015.

The Future Fabrics Expo showcases and promotes innovative and commercially viable fibres, fabrics and products that embody a range of sustainable principles and new technologies. The intention is to creatively inspire designers as well as educate them about the newest developments in sustainable fabrics.

Interior and fashion design

Ultrafabrics specialises in the engineering, manufacturing and distribution of the polyurethane materials. Various companies and brands use the company’s products as an alternative to leather or woven fabrics. The manufacturer’s collections offer a great variety of different colours and textures and allow for exciting collaborations across the interior design industry, the company reports.

Year on year the lines between interior and fashion design are becoming increasingly blurred and each season Ultrafabrics highlights key trends and chooses fabrics to represent them.

Low impact innovations

“For the past five years the Future Fabrics Expo has been showcasing some of the best low impact innovations in international fashion and interior textiles,” said Charlotte Turner, Project Manager for Future Fabrics Expo.

“The carefully curated showcase proves that higher standards of environmental and social sustainability need not affect quality, aesthetics and longevity of materials, and that the creative application of materials with a reduced environmental impact can help to push the industry towards more sustainable practices.”

“The Sustainable Angle is excited to share a wide range of new innovations at the 5th Future Fabrics Expo in London, including exciting alternatives to leather and standard cotton and polyester that are so widely used today.”

Environmentally conscious products

Ultrafabrics says it offers environmentally conscious products. As harmony with human and environmental interaction is important to the company, PVC free, and the low VOC (volatile organic compound) attributes are said to ensure a sustainable presence within customers’ inner and outer environment.

Ultrafabrics utilises manufacturing processes that are based on conservation of raw materials, toxic-free solutions, and minimal dependency on natural resources. Standards have been regimented to meet the emissions and environmental criteria from the numerous global markets that Ultrafabrics serve including the US EPA, USGBC, EU and Canadian sustainable standards.
