Brentano's Affinity for High-Performance Textiles
New collection includes designer Crypton, GreenShield patterns for contract interiors

09.01.2014  

Brentano's fall collection demonstrates an affinity for beautiful, yet high-performing products. Tough new Crypton and GreenShield-finished upholstery fabrics from the Affinity collection marry technical durability with vibrant, designer colors and patterns for commercial, healthcare and hospitality interiors.

Stand-out stripe Aquarelle has the delicate, watercolor-like appearance of a contemporary ikat but with the performance of GreenShield finishing, bleach cleanability and an abrasion resistance over 50,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). By contrast, Mosaique's bold geometry resonates with the sharp pairing of beautifully-colored yarns in a Crypton construction that exceeds 75,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Both incredibly durable, Aquarelle and Mosaique — like the complete Affinity collection — embrace the Brentano Design Studio's dichotomic love of painterly forms and clean, sharp motifs.

Notably, in addition to contract-level performance, Aquarelle (74% high energy-dyed, post-consumer recycled polyester and 26% solution-dyed polyester) joins the Brentano Green line of sustainable fabrics.
