Cerf Volant

This month, we celebrate kite season with our Cerf Volant – the perfect material for kite making! Cerf Volant is a technical material composed of 100% Nylon with a PU coating.


The material is woven into a square pattern, with extra reinforcement threads that are placed within the weave at certain increments, usually 1/8 inch or smaller, to stop a tear or rip from continuing beyond the first square, hence, the common name given: “ripstop.” It is both super lightweight (48 gr/m2) and extremely airtight. There is also a high water resistance due to an FOA-free PU coating on both sides, ensuring there is almost no water absorption.


Available in roll format with a width of 150 cm, 48 gr/m2 weight and a thickness of 0.09 mm. Cerf Volant comes in 13 strong colours.


Cerf Volant is perfect for PLV, windows, object design, fashion, and design applications.

The perfect material to put the wind in your sails ...
