Unique three-layered microstructure－where quality and advantages begin
Lamous is composed of a three-layered microstructure; front, core and back. The front and back layers consist of three-dimensionally entangled polyester ultra fine microfibers (roughly 1/18 the thickness of hair). The core layer is composed of a fine, specially-woven fabric called "scrim," which improves strength and dimensional stability. Impregnation with water-based polyurethane in the spaces between the ultra fine microfibers imparts a soft and highly flexible texture. This unique three-layered microstructure enables Lamous to meet various kinds of customer requirements and create a wide variety of designs and fields of application.
