The Bauhaus drapilux 150 is characterised by minimalist rectangles in subtle colours. The fabric is woven using the so-called Scherli technique which creates the pattern. The coloured weft is only partially integrated into a white warp. The other areas of the weft yarn lie loosely on top of the fabric. These so-called loose threads are cut off after weaving (Swiss term: Scherli). Besides the three colour combinations in smoky pastel and neutral shades, drapilux 150 is also available in a white/white colourway. With its low-key pattern, this fabric is also ideal for hospitals.
The slight pattern is dedicated to Gunta Stölzl – the most significant female artist in the Bauhau school. She was the only women who managed to attain the level of master craftsperson in the Bauhaus school. In 1931, she concentrated her teaching programme on the development of functional textiles, thus leading directly to the core competence practised by drapilux.
