The three new blackout fabrics were primarily developed with hotels in mind. It is essential to block out light in order to have a peaceful night’s sleep. “The idea was to develop blackout fabrics which met both functional and aesthetic requirements in guest rooms,” said Head of Design, Kirstin Herrmann.
With its light structure, this block print fabric can be used on its own as well as in conjunction with curtains or other transparent items. There are 17 neutral shades.
The special feature of this blackout fabric is that it can be used on both sides. The white base material is printed on both sides using a digital printing method, and has the same structure but in different colour shades. The fabric width is ceiling height and comes in 12 colours, of which five are neutrals and the remaining seven are on-trend colours.
The new, floor-to-ceiling velour drapilux 171 captivates with its plush feel and is available in 33 colours. The focus is on neutral shades, on the one hand, and on rich, and bright on-trend colours on the other. “Of course, classic Bordeaux red is a must,” commented Hermann. These textiles can also be printed, as illustrated by the contemporary leaf design. Instead of the floral pattern, it is also possible to print the fabric with a bespoke design. The surface of the fabric has a soft pile, and the fibres can be combed in any direction. “This blackout is undoubtedly one of the highlights of our current collection”, concluded Herrmann.
