Deri2000 is the market leader for natural chamois. We combine time honoured tanning techniques with the most modern production processes to deliver the finest quality Natural Chamois.

Natural Chamois remains the softest and most effective product to dry your car.  Deri2000 chamois stands out from other drying cloths for its consistently smooth finish, its soft touch and its professional detailing performance.

The natural fibers of our chamois are such that they allow remaining dirt to be absorbed into the cloth, this means less micro-scratching of paint surfaces.

The natural oils infused into the cloth during production, help to  deliver a professional sheen and our chamois removes water quickly and efficiently, absorbing up to 6x it’s weight and delivering a streak free finish.

Premium quality, naturally!  Our production focuses on the British Standard BS6715:1991 the industry standard for Chamois Leather.   We test regularly with the British Leather Confederation (BLC), so that you can be confident every Deri2000 Natural Chamois meets and exceeds the leading industry standards.

Natural Chamois ZERO MICROPLASTICS

Natural Chamois Leather contains Zero Microplastics. When produced correctly (as we do!), it is a natural, eco-friendly product, that is both sustainable and totally biodegradable.  It also happens to be simply the finest material you can use, to dry your car!

Microfibre cloths, by contrast, are made from microplastics. Microplastics are plastics that are smaller than 5mm in length and can be very harmful to the environment, especially the biodiversity of oceans, due to their small size.

Microplastics have been found throughout the ocean food chain, in small shrimp and molluscs, inside fish and now even in larger animals such as walrus in the Arctic. It has also recently been discovered that microplastics carry and spread harmful bacteria, which is causing untold damage to essential ocean reefs.

When you wash your car with a microfibre, microplastics are released into your wash water and this runs directly into storm drains. From here microplastics are fed into streams and rivers and out into the ocean. Even in the few cases where water is returned to treatment plants, most microplastics are not captured due to their small size of under 300μm.

In short, Microplastics are a very serious global issue!  We strongly believe that Microfibre use for car washing is not sustainable and public opinion is moving in this direction, against microplastics.

We are, and always have been, a genuine and proven drying alternative!
