About the Company
The Volvo Group is a Swedish multinational manufacturing corporation headquartered in Gothenburg. The brand is moving away from bovine leather with the next generation of Volvo models and has developed an in-house next-gen leather material.
The new material, called Nordico, was created by Volvo and consists of textiles produced from recycled PET bottles, recycled cork, and biomaterials sourced from forests in Sweden and Finland.
Nordico appears to be a blend of recycled and bio-based materials. It is unclear what percentage of each makes up the final product.
Selected Brand Partnerships
Nordico is set to make an appearance in the new Volvo EVs, beginning with the 2022 C40 Recharge crossover.
