Intriguing materials: Discover collection by Brentano

Brentano launched the Discovery collection by the company’s design director Iris Wang. The Discovery textile collection offers durable, designer solutions for residential, hospitality and commercial projects, including two new, solution-dyed upholsteries for Brentano’s line of outdoor fabrics. The bold, vertical stripes of Parterre, like the regimented European gardens inspiring the name, give a formal structure to the traditional twill weave yet play with color and scale. Lightfast, antibacterial and bleach cleanable, 100 percent polyester Parterre and its 100 percent polyolefin companion Element, a subtle texture, both exceed 70,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek) for beauty and performance.

Founded in 1990 by Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has a collection of eco-fabrics, including eco-friendly faux leather, high performance upholstery, fire-resistant, outdoor, Crypton, Nano-Tex and GreenShield fabrics.
