This environmentally friendly, biomimetic fish and reptile skin, made of polyurethane, gives the impression of being vibrant and real. This is due to the numerous scales implanted in the soft fabric. It is possible to imitate every type of fish or reptile pattern by printing fabric and scales in different colours. The material offers a number of user-friendly functions including hydrodynamic properties, impact resistance, water repellence and wrinkle-free qualities. That makes it eminently suitable for the manufacture of many products including fashion items.
Statement by the Jury
