Maestley Natural Leather Substitute from Teijin

Teijin Cordley Limited, the Teijin Group's  man-made leather business, announced on April 8, 2016 that it has developed Maestley, a new  high-grade natural leather substitute.  Maestley has equivalent texture and richness to natural leather and other superior attributes.  Sales of Maestley will begin this spring.
Maestley

Teijin Cordley developed Maestley through innovative developments in fiber selection, non-woven structures, based material density and lamination methods. The company will expand its series of Maestley products by adopting natural leather processing procedures in collaboration with Japanese tanners.

Prices for high-grade natural leathers like calf and kip are rapidly increasing in line with rising demand, while supplies in developed countries are decreasing.  New man-made leather products with superior texture and other attributes are being developed to meet such demand.

Teijin Cordley will expand the Maestley line-up by leveraging the company’s advanced man-made leather production technologies for high-end shoes and bags to improve comfortability and durability as well as breathability and moisture permeability. Teijin will also launch a new series of products developed jointly with tanners in Japan, with a texture and feel equivalent to that of natural leather, deploying the same production processes as those used for natural leather.
