Ultrafabrics introduces Mokume performance fabric

Brisa features acoustic properties as a solution for quieter environments

UltrafabricsTARRYTOWN, N.Y. - Ultrafabrics, a manufacturer of high-performance polyurethane fabrics, introduced Mokume, a new member of the Brisa family of intelligent performance fabrics.

Its name derived from the Japanese characters Moku, meaning “tree,” and Me, meaning “eye.” Mokume’s aesthetic was inspired by its resemblance to the unique vertical wood graining of mature tree trunks. The natural, textural appeal is highlighted by an earthy palette of fourteen hues, adding a natural touch to any environment.
