Carbon fiber is a material used in Boeing 787 airplanes, rockets and race cars. It is a material that is strong and lightweight, which will make them more fuel-efficient or faster. It is becoming more and more popular in production cars for both the car frame and parts as well as interior parts. MenStyleFashion tested the special carbon upgrade of the Bentley Bentayga which had a carbon spoiler and interior parts.
Besides the weight and performance benefits people like the way that carbon fiber looks where you can see the weaving pattern. It is this look that has inspired Common Fibers to make a whole range of lifestyle accessories from wallets, eyewear, bottle openers, passport holders etc.
About Common Fibers
Founders Ann and Gabe Mountjoy have a history of making carbon fiber race cars and back in 2013, they set out to make carbon fiber casual for everyone.
This meant re-imagining what carbon fiber can be. They did lots of testing and came up with the world’s first carbon fiber hinge, the CF-Flex. In 2014 they launched their first carbon fiber wallet successfully on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
Since then, Common Fibers has grown into a full fabrication facility, with over 150 product items selling worldwide. It is a family-owned business operating from Seattle in the USA.
