Q&A

with Iwan Nassimi
Exec. Vice President, Nassimi LLC
What is something exciting happening at
your company that you'd like to share?

The reception to the launch of our newest product,
Supreen™ - an innovative new performance fabric
with a proprietary, impermeable liquid barrier has been overwhelmingly positive. Supreen™ has
the luxurious softness of a woven fabric with the
durability of a coated textile.

How do you incorporate sustainable/ecofriendly practices in your company?
Sustainability is a key tenet in our product
development process. As the first company to
eliminate phthalates and FR chemicals from
our faux leathers, we have pioneered ways to
increase our products' physical performance
while reducing environmental impact. And with
Supreen™, we're pushing sustainability further
using a proprietary process that removes 99% of
all contaminants and offers a bleach cleanable
solution which is fluorocarbon, PCT-and-PFOAfree and Healthy Hospital Initiative (HHI) and
Proposition 65 compliant.

How do you continue to innovate when it
comes to product design?
Our goal in design is always to elevate the
performance, aesthetics, and comfort of the

materials that we produce. To do so, we
research new technologies and new materials
from other industries and adapt these to our
needs. We created the first true faux leather
in the market, utilizing innovative vacuumembossing technology, and we adapted
medical-grade silicone for upholstery use.
Now, that pattern of innovation culminates
with the development of Supreen™, which
merges textile, faux leather, and silicone
technologies.

What do you have planned for the
upcoming year?

We have several more rich Supreen™ textures
in the works, offering a wider range of colors
and patterns.

What trends are you paying attention
to?

We are seeing diverging trends - increased
performance, specifically as it relates to
disinfection and bleach cleanability - as well
as softer, more comfortable materials that lend
themselves to unique upholstery capabilities.
We aim to incorporate both to directly address
what the market needs and what designers,
specifiers, and manufacturers are looking for.
