Eco-Flock & Leather-Free

The eco-flock padding can be defined as an eco-feather. In fact, it offers extra comfort compared to animal down because it adjusts more evenly inside upholstery, again blending aesthetics, functionality and ethics.

It is indeed an innovative material that retains its properties over time and whose maintenance is quick and easy.

Tosconova has decided not to choose animal leather upholstery, focusing on expanding and diversifying the upholstery fabrics collection, hence the leather-free approach.

Thanks to research, the company has selected the finest fabrics as per quality and aesthetics. Tosconova goes one step further towards sustainability, choosing made in Italy fabrics only, in order to limit pollution by favoring local, very high-quality materials and processes.

An ongoing commitment

Eco-Friendly material

Since the foundation of the company, there has always been the commitment to reduce the footprint as lower as possible. We research and upgrade regularly the material for production as well as the ones we use within internal operations. A proud example is that we decided to not use real leather, substituting this with high-level luxury material that does not harm anybody. This choice follows a continuous research in enabling to conserve the environment even more. In this way, we contribute to making the world a little better.

Tosconova prefers the use of water based, solvent-free adhesives without environmentally harmful elements. We do care to reduce the footprint as much as possible and in this case it is because one thing is clear: water is the foundation of life. Tosconova is a proud customer of Simalfa for water based glues.
