New Colors for Torale® Luxe from Ultrasuede®

Torale® Luxe, the supple, pliant luxury leather alternative from the makers of Ultrasuede®, adds six, on-trend colors—Gold, Dove, Truffle, Tarnish, Pewter and Pear – to its selection of subtle iridescent hues.

The high-performance luxury of Torale® Luxe is ideal for upholstered furniture, both residential and commercial, and is especially popular for application on benches, headboards, gaming chairs and other occasional seating. Complementary to metallic finishes, it works well for upholstered barstools and the like. It may also be directly applied as a cover to hard surfaces.

Characteristics of Torale® Luxe include: rich grain for a solid “grip”; full color range; fire-retardance; colorfastness; resistance to abrasion, sagging, crocking and shrinking; and easy cleaning with mild soap and water.

Manufacturers will appreciate that Torale® Luxe can be stacked for cutting, which greatly reduces waste and creates greater yield per square foot, a significant economic advantage.

In addition, the construction of both Torale® Luxe and its backcloth meet industry needs for stretch and recovery—thick enough for industrial use, but versatile enough for the fashion, home and transportation applications.

Consumers and designers want the stylish, sophisticated look of leather, but not the environmental or ethical consequences of using animal skins. Thanks to the advanced science of Toray Industries, which produces Ultrasuede® and Torale® Luxe, they can have the look, comfort and flexibility of leather plus greater durability in a product that better fits today’s green-minded attitudes.

Environmental advantages include an environmentally friendly production processes that help reduce CO2 emissions and eliminate the need for harmful chemicals and by-products typically associated with tanning.
