Perrone Intros New Leather and Textiles

Perrone Aerospace is unveiling two additions to its premium leathers and textiles (Booth No. 1563) here at NBAA’12.

The Fultonville, N.Y.-based company’s new Contessa leather is an extension of Perrone’s successful Royalty leather portfolio. Through a proprietary milling process, Perrone craftsmen have created a luxurious feel with the appearance of a subtle “shrunken” pebble grain.

Aware of the market demand for customization, Perrone can create matching colors, color tipping and unique grains and textures in its new Contessa. According to president Bill Perrone, a large selection of pre-processed raw material “allows the company to turn around even custom colors within five days.”

The Marquis introduction to the textile line has its origins in Italy with a Maquis Epinglé weave that resembles tapestries and was commonly used in creating garments for royalty during the 5th through 15th centuries.

Today, this fabric construction is used most frequently in applications that require high durability and is therefore a premier choice for cabinets, storage closets and baggage compartments. Due to the precise construction, Perrone’s 10-color Marquis pallet is designed to coordinate with many of the carpeting and wood veneer options common in the modern aircraft cabin interior.

“These introductions support our commitment to provide the highest quality and broadest portfolio of premium leathers and textiles,” said Perrone. Samples of both Contessa and Marquis can be seen at the Perrone exhibit. – K.J.H.
