The new drapilux 185 decorative fabric is truly a woven work of art. Eight different warp and weft colours are woven together to create a raised and sunken surface. The result is a look with a wide variety of shades that mixes and matches well. The series features seven different shades, which result in an elegant ambience in different room and living environments. Consequently, this material is ideal for use as a decorative fabric, throw or even as a cushion cover. Thanks to its small repeat pattern, the fabric is also suitable for use in the cruise ship sector.
drapilux 185 is one of the four new arrivals this season in honour of the female artists of the Bauhaus era. This fabric is dedicated to Margarethe Leischner, who studied in Dessau from 1927 to 1930. She later became the assistant to Gunta Stölzl, the weaving mill manager, and always attached particular importance to knowing the material inside out, calculating the amount of fabric required and weaving techniques. The latter is used in the decorative fabric of drapilux 185: a double-sided fabric or also a canvas double weave. These textiles use a so-called binding chain to hold both of the weft systems together, thereby creating a double-sided pattern.
