What is Coating?

Manufacturing coated fabrics is our business. We select our textile bases with care, while choosing different structures (cloth or jersey, etc.) and materials (cotton, polyamide and polyester, etc.). We then coat them with polymers, primarily PVC and Polyurethane.
With our finishing processes, we can offer aspects such as leather or textile ones. We protect the surface of our coated products with varnishes, which makes them resistant to use and adverse weather conditions (light, spots, etc.).



The Cotting Group is an international specialist in the manufacture of coated fabrics. We have been present on the world market for more than 70 years. Our know-how and experience have allowed us to diversify while constantly striving to provide innovation and quality. All our products are certified and recognised for their technical and aesthetic properties. We have gained the trust of major brands: in the Automotive Industry (Citroën, Peugeot, DS,  Renault, Nissan, Infiniti, Audi, GM, Ford, etc.), as well as in luxury leather goods and the health, transport, industrial, fire retardant furniture and hotel and restaurant sectors, for such customers as the Accord Group and McDonalds.

Cotting is a human-oriented group with high added value products. It maintains a very close relationship with its customers. This makes it easier to understand their needs and requirements. It also allows us to provide the right creative and technical solutions, whether within the framework of our new collections or of bespoke ones.

The Cotting Group complies with the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and, in the Automotive sector, ISO/TS 16949 standards.
