What Is Naugahyde?
Naugahyde Fake Leather Vinyl Material
Naugahyde ® is an artificial material designed to represent leather.
Naugahyde ® was invented in 1914 in the USA, in Nugatuck.
It was a world first in innovation and material. When it was launched it was the world’s first rubber based artificial leather made.
Naugahyde is in fact a just a vinyl like other fake leathers, that claim the name leather in its title when they shouldn’t as it has no leather content at all.
Naugahyde supply products into many sectors including marine, automotive, hospitals, corporate, fitness and much more.
Naugahyde are a Uniroyal Group of Companies member, who claim they are market leaders in vinyl coated fabrics and soft trim technologies.
Another member of the Uniroyal group is Ambla Upholstery Fabrics based in Lancashire, England.
On the back of the Naugahyde ® can, is the Nauga, a mystical horned creature that’s native to the island of Sumatra. Naugas almost faced extinction as they became over hunted for its soft leather like skin, the silly thing is there was no point in this as Naugas shed skin naturally and it re grew automatically.
