The use of the materials has no limit in the automotive interior : seats, door panels, dashboard, headliner, package tray ..  

Colour obsession

The multitude of materials must coexist in harmony color-wise in the automotive interior. Our expertise in colour adjustment relies on our broad range of dope dyed and yarn dyed yarn stock and on our dip-dyeing amenities. From prototyping to production, we control the conformity of our products step by step.

Personalization, our credo

The vehicle has its own style in terms of aspects and materials assembly. This specificity is often reinforced by distinctive embellishment : embossing, padding, patch, flocking, digital printing, screenprinting. All these personalization processes are adopted by the OEM to distinguish and reinforce their brand image/identity.

Smart textiles

Materials are intelligent, and we cultivate it. Besides the design value of the materials, their functionalities become inevitable : stainless, antimicrobial, smell absorption, luminescent, or the integration of sensors to detect the presence of passengers, and to deliver data in regards to their behaviour in the passengers’ compartment … we are in line with the requirements of a new way of living in the automotive interior with the rise of shared and autonomous vehicles.

Materials that contribute to energy usage

The second generation of our materials have integrated heat conduction properties. They are an alternative solution to existing systems with great assets : weight reduction and low usage of energy.

Tesca is one of the first suppliers in the world to replace synthetic materials with biosourced or recycled materials, hence contributing in the ecology of materials. Recycled polyester or cellulosic fibres obtained from wood, the incorporation of wool, linen or new vegetal polyamides, the spectrum of materials keeps expanding.
