ADVERTORIAL - 

Evohide™ Mistral FRee is the latest addition to Morbern’s MorGreen™ collection of eco-friendly coated fabrics produced without any chemical FR (Fire Resistant) additives, yet still achieving the European Fire Norm EN1021 (Part 1&2).

As well as being 100% vegan, phthalate-free and REACH compliant, Evohide™ is formulated with bio-attributed PVC resins (originating from agricultural and forestry biomass) and bio-based plasticisers derived from non-feedstock bio-waste such as vegetable cooking oil, including soya bean oil. Furthermore, the 100% recycled polyester backing fabric is made from used PET plastic water bottles, with 2.5 post-consumer bottles making in each metre of knitted backing fabric.

The combination of these ISCC & RSB certified renewable ingredients makes for Evohide™ – a 75% sustainable content vegan leather, suitable for all indoor and outdoor upholstery applications.

Just like the other 2 existing MorGreen product ranges, Eden FRee and Geo FRee which are already OekoTex Standard 100 certified, EvoHide™ Mistral has been submitted to receive this green quality label which is expected early in 2023.

Owing to its eco-friendly credentials, EvoHide™ Mistral FRee is evocative of the environment, named after the strong, “masterly” (in Occitan) wind that plays an important role in the Mediterranean region’s climate. It comes in a range of 25 colours developed with several market applications in mind: neutrals for marine upholstery, pastels for outdoor furniture as well as bolder accent colours for contract and hospitality decors.

In addition to the Mistral FRee stock range launched in 2022, the appearance and properties of Evohide™ can be tailored to meet designers’ expectations (subject to minimum quantities), from plain leather-look surfaces to textile-inspired grains, always achieving an excellent haptic. EvoHide™ can also be specified to reach higher fire norms as well as IMO MED where required.
