Our Product

Material innovation has never been more important. For Ultrafabrics, sustainability isn’t an add-on, confined to a separate, isolated product line. In order to be truly responsible, sustainability is infused and crafted into every material, with no impact on the fabric’s function, performance, or beauty. Not only do we consider the inputs of our products from a sustainability perspective, but we’re also committed to exceptional product quality and durability to support the principles of circular economy.

  • Designed for Longevity
    Our propriety process, Takumi™ Technology, involves applying the principles of craftsmanship to maximize the performance of each layer of our fabrics. In this way, we make the most effective use of resources already extracted from the earth to produce durable and desirable materials that exceed our customers’ expectations.
  • Product Health & Safety

    We’re delivering safer materials for our producers and clients alike. Green chemistry is a key focus at Ultrafabrics to ensure we’re managing and mitigating possible environmental and health impacts and supporting a healthy future for the textiles industry.

    As part of our commitment to safer chemistry:

    • By 2025, all products stored and sold in the US will be PFAS-free, and by 2027 all products sold globally will be PFAS-free.
    • All Ultrafabrics branded materials have low VOCs and are assessed to pass SCS Indoor Advantage Gold, the highest level of indoor air quality performance for furniture.
    • We assess Ultrafabrics products to semi-annual REACH updates to ensure they meet and/or exceed the criteria.
    • We have reviewed the Living Building Challenge Red List, and Ultrafabrics products do not contain any Red List chemicals, with the exceptions of Ultraleather Pro, Reef Pro, and collections suitable for outdoor


  • Material Innovation

    As we shift away from virgin synthetic and finite resources, it is essential that the replacements are scalable, plentiful, and derived from rapidly renewable or recycled sources. These new materials must also withstand the performance requirements of diverse applications.

    Our initial investment in these materials began about a decade ago when we became the first and only polyurethane branded partner to utilize TENCEL™ Modal in our collections. We then introduced our first biobased collection in 2019, Volar Bio. Since then, we’ve been working to increase our use of recycled, rapidly renewable, and biobased materials in our backings and resins to improve the sustainability of our materials portfolio.

    We are proud to have reached our sustainable material goal a full year ahead of our 2025 target – a testament to our dedication to sustainable innovation. By 2030, our Uf Select portfolio and applicable transportation-grade materials will also have at least 50% rapidly renewable and/or recycled materials.
