What is eco-leather?

04.03.2019

Our car seat covers are made of a modern, eco-friendly material – Arigon eco-leather”. Eco-leather is made using cotton, that is both strong and light.    

Advantages of eco-leather over imitation leather

Imitation leather seat covers are made of fabric coated with special film, mainly made of PVC (polyvynil chloride). It contains many harmful additives, such as plasticizer, to make the material more elastic.

Eco-leather seat covers are made of fabric with polyurethane coating. This film does not have harmful additives, which makes eco-leather seat covers safe for people with allergies. The base fabric in eco-leather is made of cotton, which makes it soft and elastic without chemical additives.

Eco-leather is a “breathing” material

Eco-leather car seats have special micro-pores on the surface. This allows the material to “breathe” just like ordinary fabric (unlike PVC). Thanks to this “breathing” effect, the material does not acquire odors. With eco-leather seat covers you won’t feel like your car is a greenhouse – it doesn’t get hot in summer and does not thicken in winter. Besides, unlike PVC, it does not release any harmful chemicals.

Taking care of eco-leather

Eco-leather does not require any special treatment. To remove contamination, just clean the surface with wet cloth, then wipe dry. This way you can get rid of dust and dirt. For those tough stains that cannot be removed with water, use 40-50% solution of ethyl alcohol or ammonia.
