Toray Offers a Special Class on Ultrasuede® for Graduation Projects at Chinese Colleges of Arts

Toray’s aim is to conduct a business that contributes to an enriched society, and passes it on to the next generation. Toward this end, Toray offers Ultrasuede® materials for graduation projects of students who study at universities or colleges of arts across the world. Recently, Toray held a special online class on Ultrasuede® for students who study at Tsinghua University’s Academy of Arts and Design, the Central Academy of Fine Arts, and the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology. These are leading, respected colleges of arts in China, and their students aspire to become fashion, interior or vehicle designers. Joining in the efforts to control the spread of COVID-19, a special class was given that connected the colleges with Toray’s office in Japan and its Shanghai Office online. Some students participated from outside China, and the online class at each site was filled with enthusiasm from the students, even while studying in continuously adverse conditions. It also served as a good opportunity for participants to feel the strong relationship between these institutes and Toray offices. Ultrasuede® keeps evolving toward a future full of “Beautiful Possibilities”.
