What Is Alcantara®? | Ferrari Interior Materials

A sought-after interior material for numerous Ferrari models, Alcantara® offers comfort, style and resilience unmatched by traditional materials. Commonly mistaken as a type of suede, Alcantara® provides a similarly luxurious feel while remaining entirely synthetic - making it ideal for car interiors exposed to the elements and decades of usage. Available in a massive variety of colors, Alcantara® allows drivers to personalize their interiors with bright, bold colors without sacrificing durability or comfort.

Alcantara®: A Brief History

Developed in the early 1970s by Miyoshi Okamoto, a Japanese scientist at Toray Industries, in partnership with ENI, an Italian chemical company, Alcantara® combined an advanced spinning process with a delicate chemical and textile process that interact to produce a plush yet robust material. Similar to Toray's "Ultrasuede®" material, a synthetic microfiber material, the two differ largely in their percentages of polyester to polyurethane, and the fact that Alcantara® remains entirely made in Italy, while Ultrasuede® is entirely made in Japan.
