Hours of sitting in lounges or conference rooms? Sweating in summer temperatures? No problem for the breathable and water vapor-permeable functional artificial leathers skai® VyP Nappa, skai® VyP Lana and skai® VyP Coffee!

The skai® VyP Coffee variant also impresses with its sustainable recycled content made from coffee grounds.
Production and composition of breathable skai® VyP artificial leather
As a hybrid material made of vinyl and polyurethane, skai® VyP synthetic leathers with skai® technology combine the best of both worlds. They are abrasion-resistant and durable, yet the surfaces are pleasantly soft to the touch and appear organic and elegant with their realistic genuine leather grain.
This amazing combination makes skai® VyP artificial leathers suitable for almost any application where durability must not come at the expense of comfort. In addition, the breathable skai® VyP artificial leathers with skai® technology also impress with their responsible formulation and production: Only raw materials that are free of conventional solvents are used in the manufacturing process. In their place, high-quality aqueous PU systems and finishes are used.
skai® VyP with laif technology – breathable artificial leather in numerous color combinations
With realistic leather grains and varied color palettes, skai® VyP inspires designers and manufacturers in the creation of seating furniture of all kinds suitable for everyday use. skai® VyP Nappa impresses with its cowhide structure and classic color variations. The pastel shades and soft surface of the award-winning skai® VyP Lana artificial leather set trendy accents. The natural brown tone of skai® VyP Coffee emphasizes the organic character of this innovative fabric with recycled content made from coffee grounds. This artificial leather feels particularly at home wherever a sustainable environment is important.

Properties of breathable skai® artificial leather with skai® technology
The functional skai® VyP synthetic leathers shine in practical use with outstanding properties such as breathability, water and air permeability and soft, supple feel. In addition, the hybrid material also offers advantages in the manufacturing process: Thanks to their suppleness, the artificial leathers in the skai® VyP family can be easily pulled over edges or into recesses. This means that even intricate upholstered furniture contours can be reliably reproduced.
Another argument in favor of the breathable skai® VyP artificial leathers with skai® technology is their small ecological footprint. Water-based finish and PU components and a responsible, resource-conserving manufacturing process make the coated materials more sustainable than almost any other synthetic leather on the market.
Applications of breathable artificial leather
Wherever people sit for longer periods of time, seating furniture with skai® VyP as the upholstery covering offers outstanding comfort. For example, in conference centers, cinemas, hotel lobbies or offices, but also in public waiting areas or in all types of transportation.
Thanks to its excellent performance features, skai® VyP is perfect for use in restaurants, cafes, bars and bistros. The skai® VyP artificial leathers with skai® technology are also a popular choice in VIP lounges.
Sitting for extended periods does not become uncomfortable over time – instead, it actually becomes a pleasure thanks to skai® VyP artificial leather. Whether in a cafe, at your favorite Italian restaurant, at the cinema or in a trendy bar: Wherever people linger for longer, skai® VyP impresses with its outstanding comfort. The same applies to all seating furniture, whether in offices, conference rooms or cars: The permeable surface of the three functional artificial leathers from skai® VyP prevents unpleasant sweating, which can otherwise occur after prolonged sitting.
Advantages of breathable artificial leather
The skai® VyP artificial leathers with skai® technology are characterized by a number of advantages that make their use both convenient and economical.
