Who are we

Vyva Fabrics was founded from a small warehouse in a quaint Dutch harbour in 1990 as a supplier of upholstery materials for boats and yachts. Now, 34 years later, we are a wholesaler specialised in the distribution and production of high-quality artificial leathers and fabrics for in and outdoors.

Our innovative and durable fabrics and vinyls are suitable for every sector, ranging from architects to shipbuilders.With our three decades of experience and diverse network of long-term relationships we try to offer excellent service, fresh ideas and lots of inspiration.


We love what we do, the materials and the people we work with, so we will always go the extra mile - or knot.
We have a hands-on, typically Dutch no-nonsense mentality. We enjoy supplying you with original, modern day solutions that benefit your clients and your employees as well. And we believe in durability; working with environmentally friendly materials and maintaining long-lasting relationships with our clients.


Econic is a durable and high-quality artificial leather that looks like natural linen and feels pleasant. The innovative material in the Econic collection is completely phthalate-free and contains 75% biobased, recycled and renewable ingredients. 


The material does not contain any chemical FR (flame retardant) additives, and still complies with the European fire standard EN 1021 (part 1&2). The backing consists of 100% recycled polyester made from used plastic water bottles, and the collection has the ecolabel OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.


We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our Harlow Collection, now featuring six exquisite eco-friendly colors. From the serene sea green to the charming pastel pink, these hues not only enhance aesthetic appeal but also contribute significantly to environmental sustainability.


What sets these colors apart is the incorporation of sustainable materials; 45% of the content is derived from recycled PET and BIO-based plasticizers. This conscious choice reflects our commitment to eco-conscious practices and a greener future.


Our team travels around the world to visit main important interior and design fairs and boat shows. Also, we follow the latest fashion news - keeping ourselves abreast with up-coming trends for the interior market-, the colour and material presentations, international trend forecasters and trend forums online. And of course, we love nature: the sea, the water, the wind in our hair and our feet in the sand. And let's not forget that we visit so many different people, working together with major architectural firms or small sailmaker workshops, in big cities and remote country locations, it is virtually impossible for us not to get inspired.
