Camira launches Deca, a vegan friendly and bleach cleanable PU

Camira are global textile innovators who love designing and manufacturing fabrics for a huge range of commercial interiors from offices to education to healthcare and hospitality. The company is forever pushing the boundaries of sustainable design and is the name behind industry leading textile innovations such as fabrics made from harvested nettles and commercially grown hemp.

Design meets performance with the launch of Deca. Engineered from polyurethane (PU) to withstand the intense heat and moisture demands of ten-week hydrolysis, equivalent to 10 years’ real life exposure to these harsh elements, this super soft vegan friendly alternative to leather blends aesthetic qualities with technical capabilities. It’s also bleach cleanable, making it perfect for the most demanding of commercial interiors in the post COVID-19 age.

Ensuring technical performance doesn’t come at the cost of consumer health, Deca is free from the harmful substances commonly found in vinyl and polyurethane and is certified to Oeko-Tex standard 100, demonstrating that it is harmless to health. For added peace of mind, Deca not only offers incredible protection in the harshest of environments, it is also bleach cleanable for quick wipe down cleaning and disinfection. It is suitable for higher level disinfection protocols at 1:4 concentration, making it perfect for a wide range of commercial spaces which rely on heightened sanitation and hygiene in this new world.


Buttery soft, Deca is luxurious to the touch. Providing the aesthetics of the highest quality leather, this delicate PU not only looks the part, it feels it too. With a pure cotton backing, Deca is supple, malleable and ideal for upholstery. Available in a select palette of 20 delicate and delicious shades, these refined colourways are the perfect complement for the most sophisticated of schemes. Deca is available to order in the UK, Europe and APAC now.
