The fag jacket

A new concept of leather is being developed by Grado Zero Espace for Corpo Nove. The new leather is ultra-thin but its association to a layer of thin cigarette-paper makes it very resistant.


Besides, a shape memory polymers membrane has been added to the paper-skin binomial. This third material provides an unusual impermeability and some temperature control, in feedback with body’s heat, which allows a good perspiration when the body’s heat is high and, on the contrary, creates a barrier to the cold and the moisture when temperature is lowered under certain predetermined and programmable limits.
