Ultrafabrics releases six new Volar Bio colours

Dezeen Showroom: performance fabric manufacturer Ultrafabrics has launched six new colours for its bio-based animal hide alternative Volar Bio.

Volar Bio is made from 29 per cent plant-based materials, such as wood pulp and corn by-products, and designed to look and feel like leather.

"The six new tones were added in response to customer feedback," said Nicole Meier, Ultrafabrics' director of branding.

"There was a need for neutrals to round out the palette, and adding these six new tones brings a full spectrum of fifteen beautiful options," she added.

"The new hues come from biophilic inspiration – elements from the earth such as soil, sand, dirt – and it completes the colours that are inspired by plants and other organic dye sources."
