    The two North Cloth sailcloth styles not exclusive to North Sails are Oceanus Cloth and Cuben Fiber Sailcloth.
    Oceanus is a modern polyester sailcloth designed and produced by North Cloth specifically for traditional sailing yachts and training vessels.  Cuben Fiber is a proprietary material in which fiber that is originally manufactured as a yarn is spread into a flat tape of side-by-side filaments and arranged in various layouts and combinations between outer layers of film.
