The latest artificial leather material was developed in response to the question: Is it possible to overcome the weaknesses of natural leather and impart functions not possible with natural leather with an artificial leather having a fiber layer with random three-dimensional conformation and a polymer material layer having a continuous microporous structure? Teijin Cordley Limited is the global leader in the utilization of cutting-edge technologies in functions and environments.
