We found a way to form a steady hinge between two synthetic materials by using only Alcantara, heat and pressure. Since none of the usual attachment materials such as screws, rivets, nails, staples or glue are needed, this connection can be called “weightless“.
The Alcantara hinge is attached to its synthetic base material by
using a heated metallic stamp that melts the two materials into
each other under a certain pressure. The result is a very unique rivet-like look. Now we won’t have to recycle bonding material, we won’t have to pay for bonding material and we won’t have to deal with the old-fashioned looks of bonding material.
