New collection to mark 25th anniversary

Ultrafabrics has reintroduced its Volar Bio collection with a 66% mix of recycled, rapidly renewable and bio-based content.

The company, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary and counts numerous boatbuilders including Princess Yachts as customers, says it is six years ahead of its sustainability goals with the launch of the new collection.

The collection was initially launched in 2019 with 29% bio-based components.

 “We are six years ahead of our initial sustainability goals and 19 of our fabric lines now have content that is recycled, rapidly renewable, or both in the backcloth,” said Nicole Meier, director of branding at Ultrafabrics.

“Whether brands are ready or not, there are multiple global trends that will likely mandate transparency, traceability, and bold sustainability targets. We want to ensure our partners in all of our markets know we have a critical eye on these mandates.

“Like with every partnership, we want our specifiers to do what they do best: design cars, planes, shoes, handbags, spaceships, yachts or furniture for the future. We will worry about not only the quality and scalability but sustainability compliance issues as well.”

All Ultrafabrics products can withstand frequent cleaning and the fabric can also withstand bleach without losing its colour or altering its appearance and is suitable for use in vegan interiors.

The complete Ultrafabrics branded portfolio contains at least 50% recycled and/or renewable materials.

Backcloths are made of either a 65% recycled polyester/ 35% ECOVERO viscose blend or 100% TENCEL Modal.
