It is not a microfiber, a nanofiber, a simple engineered fabric, or even a tecno-enhanced skin.
It's not easy to describe Alcantara, but if you make an effort to go beyond simple definitions, and to understand its characteristics, you will discover a material that is full of surprises. It is strong, it breathes, and it is soft and velvety. And it can be washed and ironed. All of which makes Alcantara a versatile and unique product, suitable for use on a great many different surfaces and in quite varied environments, from cars to boats and from household furnishings to fashion.
Choosing it provides functionality, strength, softness, and elegance. In order to demonstrate its versatility, Alcantara has, in cooperation with Moleskine, decided on an unusual transformation. The result is a personalized notebook with the Alcantara logo elegantly reproduced on the cover and a blind emboss on the inside that tells the story of this innovative material. The presentation case has an elegant lining cover and is available in several different colors. This exclusive set is offered on two occasions: during Fashion Week in Milan, when it is given to the journalists who attend the presentation of the Alcantara Collection, and at the Salone del Mobile, where it is on display in the company's showroom.
