A new year and a perfect time for product update and product range information. Please make sure your binder and sample library is up to date.
We’ve summarized all our changes below including new additions and phase outs.
2014 Product Launches
Aquarius – a versatile 100% wool crepe weave fabric that is suitable for office and lounge seating. The color palette offers a great balance of subdued organic shades and confident brights.
Blazer Lite – a new improved version of this popular panel fabric with a softer, more balanced appearance and increased colorways (from 18 to 31) which co-ordinate with Blazer.
Century - an innovative, environmental textile featuring both natural wool and recycled jute from recycled coffee sacks. Century is a timeless traditional “houndstooth” check design, woven in a robust double cloth and softened with a natural twist and is inherently flame retardant to medium hazard.
Halcyon Collection - fresh and innovative performance fabrics are engineered for end-use areas which require extra protection. It comprises five fabric ranges - Aspen, Blossom, Cedar, Linden, and Poplar - all available in 12 contemporary colorways.
L2 – our first 100% recycled panel fabric to include “closed loop” content. It has an unobstrusive background grey melange effect and subtle dark tones create texture and dimension within a playful color palette of brights through to subtle neutrals.
Main Line Flax - the natural progression of our all-time favourite Main Line Plus fabric, building on our industry leading bast fibre expertise to create a new inherently flame retardant fabric from sustainable sources. The fiber is dyed before blending into a combination of 70-30 wool flax then spun to create beautiful mixture yarns which are woven into interesting solids and cross-colors.
Nettle Collection – inspired by the cultural textiles of nomadic tribes, we evolved our celebrated Sting fabric into a family of three textile patterns (Aztec, Nomad and Traveller) made from an intimate blend of virgin wool and harvested nettles.
Racer - a classic stretch knit product with a smooth macro cellular construction designed for use on vertical surfaces. Racer has multi-directional stretch for excellent upholsterability and offers a balanced color palette of neutrals through to brights.
Silk - a beautifully constructed dobby weave fabric created with a three tone tweed effect, rich with rustic charm. Made from a blend of three natural fibres, silk, flax and wool, this product has a fantastic eco-story, a luxuriously soft handle and is inherently flame retardant.
Tangled - a small scale intricate pattern designed by award winning British designer Emma J Shipley showcasing entangled and entwined jungle branches. Tangled is printed onto Blazer 100% Laneve wool, sustainably produced and traceable to source.
