)-- Brentano’s fall collection demonstrates an affinity for beautiful, yet high-performing products. Tough new Crypton and GreenShield-finished upholstery fabrics from the Affinity collection marry technical durability with vibrant, designer colors and patterns for commercial, healthcare and hospitality interiors.
Stand-out stripe Aquarelle has the delicate, watercolor-like appearance of a contemporary ikat but with the performance of GreenShield finishing, bleach cleanability and an abrasion resistance over 50,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). By contrast, Mosaique’s bold geometry resonates with the sharp pairing of beautifully-colored yarns in a Crypton construction that exceeds 75,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Both incredibly durable, Aquarelle and Mosaique — like the complete Affinity collection — embrace the Brentano Design Studio’s dichotomic love of painterly forms and clean, sharp motifs.
Notably, in addition to contract-level performance, Aquarelle (74% high energy-dyed, post-consumer recycled polyester and 26% solution-dyed polyester) joins the Brentano Green line of sustainable fabrics.
Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house. Brentano's fabrics stem from Wang's philosophy of balancing beauty + performance. Their growing collection of eco-fabrics expands this ideology by demanding textiles meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty. Having celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2010, Brentano continues to offer a variety of innovative and interesting textiles, including eco-friendly faux leather, high performance upholstery, fire-resistant, outdoor, Crypton, Nano-Tex and GreenShield fabrics.
