Re-Introducing Brisa and Brisa Distressed High Performance for Seating


We are happy to re-introduce the newly enhanced Brisa High Performance for Seating and Brisa Distressed HP collections! Our engineers have created an improved construction that takes both styles to the next level of performance in both upholstered seating and sound absorption applications.

While the previous line of Brisa products will be discontinued, we are excited to expand the Brisa HP color line. The (HP) High Performance construction was specifically designed for seating and offers excellent breathability and outstanding comfort.

Advancements include:
Backcloth featuring our proprietary reinforced rayon blended with an added polyester content to provide greater durability (exceeds 14 weeks hydrolysis testing)
Noise and sound transfer absorption for quieter environments when combined with foam and/or paneling in vertical applications
Refreshed color palettes, providing a myriad of design options
+50% improved Wyzenbeek results - 300,000 double rubs (160,000 rubs, Martindale)
+42% improved dimensional stability
+33% improved seam strength
+33% improved recovery
+25% improved breaking strength
An intelligent solution - recognized as the world's first and only breathable polyurethane, the Brisa family of fabrics highlights boundary-pushing innovation where looks, feel and performance matter.

Looking for a fabric specifically designed for acoustical applications such as sidewalls, or headliners? Our Bolero is still available and offers improved low and mid frequency absorption, significantly reducing cabin noise.
