“Ultraleather’s Takumi construction provides a balance of comfort, quality, durability and weight, helping create the ultimate seating experience,” said a release from Tapis. “The product is manufactured using proprietary technology to create four-layer high performance fabric. This process does not use adhesives or bonding agents creating an extremely durable product and eliminating the risk of delamination."

Ultraleather can be engineered to achieve specific requirements for color, grain, finish and technical specification. Tapis can also adjust the material for gloss level, weight, breathability, and thickness. Ultraleather has ink and stain protection.

Promessa has been built for significant weight reduction; and is manufactured for heat and moisture management and ease of cleanliness. The company’s non-toxic process makes Promessa environmentally friendly and animal friendly and also allergy-free.
