Alcantara Upholstery

Invented in 1970, Alcantara is an extremely innovative material result of a unique and proprietary technology, offering a combination of sensory, aesthetic and technical qualities that no other material can match.

Entirely made in Italy - every single metre comes out of the only production plant set in the heart of Italy, Umbria - Alcantara was chosen by Renault to dress the seats, the seat cushions and the steering wheel of New Mégane R.S. and New Mégane R.S. Trophy.

Renault has therefore followed in the footsteps of many big names in the world of fashion, accessories and design, where Alcantara is widely used, to offer its customers both a lifestyle and driving experience.
All this with an ethically and environmentally responsible attitude: Alcantara is certified Carbon Neutral from 2009, generating a net balance of carbon emissions equal to zero over the entire product life cycle.

Alcantara is a registered trademark of Alcantara S.p.A., the only world’s company that manufactures and markets worldwide the original material.
