Are you “really” sitting comfortably?

WE LOVE:

  • Feeling safe and protected at home and on our journeys…​
  • …knowing that our seats have no hazardous contaminants inside or on it, and that a small spark will not get out of control​

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Unprotected surfaces can be contaminated by bacteria or viruses …​
  • … and most traditional processed synthetic leathers or fabrics focus on coloration and wear resistance only. ​
  • … but forget antibacterial properties and their potential impact on flammability ​
