Its high tech aesthetic, along with soft hand and high abrasion at 250,000 Double Rubs, makes this a relevant fabric for contemporary spaces that require performance while maintaining a technical look within a comfortable environment.
Saturate is a solid high performance water based polyurethane upholstery that is suitable for any space where a vinyl would be used. It is extremely durable at 100,000 Double Rubs and is bleach cleanable, as well as inherently antimicrobial.
Point Emboss is an environmentally friendly, high performance, water-based polyurethane upholstery that is suitable for any space where a vinyl would be used. Available in a variety of mineral-based, metallic colors, Point Emboss is extremely durable at 100,000 Double Rubs and is bleach cleanable.

Flexagon is an upholstery fabric featuring a complex geometric pattern of angles and broken planes. Made of Solution Dyed Nylon - 50% of which is Post Industrial recycled content - Flexagon is bleach cleanable, allowing for use in spaces that require high performance, yet maintains a restrained sophistication.
Two Tone is a high performing, bleach-cleanable chenille which uses two types of polyester fiber to create the soft hand as well as a play on texture and sheen. Slick, high luster polyester yarns contrast with the more matte plush yarns, creating engaging visual and textural surface effects. A new innovation in the contract marketplace and first of its kind, Two Tone has polyester chenille yarns with a heat activated melt core, which renders the fibers more durable since they melt together and thus can withstand high abrasion. This fabric is ideal for any application that demands soft upholstery with a comfortable feel, and yet must withstand rigorous wear and cleanability in the field.
