a material like no other

01.

woven fiber layer

Creates a supple hand while providing high performance.

02.

micro-foam layer

A ultra-thin layer of foam mimics the natural properties of skin.

03.

Texture

Our unique texture is impressed into the resin layer, capturing the subtle look of natural gain and long-lasting color vibrancy without any of the toxins associated with traditional leather dying and tanning. This process allows for ultimate inspiration to occur.

04.

protective surface

Our top surface adds extreme durability and low maintenance. It protects against stains, liquids, moisture, odors, and scratches. The top layer can be tuned for added function like anti-microbial or ink resistance. This gives you the freedom to live worry-free.

05.

Liner

All of our bags are lined with microfiber made from 100% recycled plastic water bottles. Our lining looks and feels incredibly similar to suede made from animal hides, but without the negative impact on animals or the environment. It has a refined and supple texture that pairs beautifully with Technik-Leather.
