We are interested in what fabric can bring to life. This journal is a celebration of the lifestyle, culture and design that influences what we do.

Around the world, the requirements for the healthcare and hospitality sectors, when it comes to textiles are purposefully strict and it’s for a reason, to protect those within these spaces.

High volumes of people / foot traffic, personal and organisational hygiene, food preparation and fire safety are just some of the considerations when selecting fabrics for these industries.

Let us introduce you to the fantastic attributes offered through our high performance healthcare and hospitality grade fabrics:

  • Easy cleanability - inherent stain resistance protection ensures spills and stains are easily wiped away
  • Anti-microbial - finishing techniques ensure mildew and bacteria can’t attach to the yarn or foam

  • Moisture Barrier - liquid and stains can’t seep through, they wick, making them easy to wipe off, flexible and breathable fabrics
  • Heavy use durability - tested and approved for commercial application in the heaviest traffic areas of a development
  • Passes all commercial tests and certifications - stringent heavy duty testing for abrasion, strength, flammability, stain resistance moisture barrier, resistance to microbial growth, cleanability, colourfastness and more
