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.
