How is Supreen fabric made for our supplies?

Supreen is a performance upholstery fabric, made in an innovative production process. Supreen is more than just a layering of advanced materials, but thanks to a proprietary process utilizing cutting-edge technology, silicone, polyester textile, and performance polyurethane layers are permanently embedded in and to one another, making a true composite material.

 

 

 

See how Supreen is made here:

  • The fabric is woven to the highest performance specifications, to ensure seam strength, abrasion resistance, and pilling resistance.

  • Woven Polyester Fabric

    The fabric is woven to the highest performance specifications, to ensure seam strength, abrasion resistance, and pilling resistance.

  • Dyeing

    Dyeing brings the fabric to life. It can be dyed in a rainbow of colors, with a variety of tonal effects possible for special visual appeal.

  • Purification

    The fabric is purified in a proprietary, patented process which removes 99.9% of all contaminants, such as dirt and oil from production.

  • Silicone Solution

    The fabric is bathed in a silicone solution, during which the silicone is embedded into the fiber and merges with the fabric. This does not affect the appearance or texture of the fabric.

  • Embedded Polyurethane Backing

    A high-performance polyurethane film is thermo-bonded to the fabric, without the use of any adhesives or solvents. This polyurethane backing weaves itself into the fabric, creating a new, composite material.

  • Voilà

    Supreen: a soft, supple performance fabric that blocks liquids and assists stains.

 

 

 

WHY YULEX?

YULEX is a luxuriously soft, renewable neoprene alternative made with a natural rubber, sustainably obtained from the bark of the Hevea tree.

No rainforest is cut down and all sources have been certified by the Rainforest Alliance. By combining a naturally occurring raw material and renewable solar energy in the production of this fabric, the Co2 footprint was reduced by up to 80%.

The result of a collaboration with outdoor retailer, Patagonia, YULEX was initially used exclusively for Patagonia water sports products. It has now been released worldwide and we are thrilled to be amongst the first to adopt it for our new pet products!

It is by adopting products like this that we all get to change the world one bag at a time.
