Brentano unveils line of eco-friendly faux leathers
Apr '14
Always high-performing, Brentano’s carefully curated line of eco-friendly, polyurethane faux leathers includes the full range between soft, neutral textures and graphic, eye-catching prints and embroidery. 
But the spring Discovery collection pushes those boundaries with Komodo, the fantasy leather of a giant lizard that stretches previous technical limits for embossed polyurethane. 
This spring’s two nature-inspired, faux leather patterns add shine to Brentano’s line: the 10 colorways of Komodo, each with a subtle sheen, and the six colorways of Splint, whose printed metallic pattern creates the soothing vertical texture of wood grains or the fissures in tree bark. 
Despite an illusion of delicacy, both 54” Komodo and Split exceed 100,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek) with solvent resistant, antibacterial and bleach cleanable properties that make them durable to wellness, hospitality and retail project standards.
About Brentano:
Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house. Brentano's fabrics stem from Wang's philosophy of balancing beauty + performance. Their growing collection of eco-fabrics expands this ideology by demanding textiles meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty.
