(double post, also in Softgoods)
I’m a professional industrial designer in the softgoods industry- I design bags, packs, soft cases, and other similar products.
Over the next several months, my company is trying to adopt a PVC-free manufacturing initiative, among other Earth-friendly practices.
Can anyone offer some suggestions for a PVC fabric backing alternative?
We’re currently using PU, even triple PU coating, but it does not have the same unique performance characteristics as PVC.
As of now- we’re using a variety of Nylon fabrics, polyesthers, polyurethane, and canvas blends in the manufacturing of our products.
Suggestions? Pros? Cons?
Thank you- take care.
