Vescom launched three new upholstery fabrics: Acton, Rolla and Dikson. Developed and produced in Vescom's own weaving mill based in North Carolina, these wear-resistant upholstery fabrics are ideal for intensive contract use.
Acton fabric has a dry matte finish and comes in an array of 39 colors, with options ranging from neutrals to bright hues of yellow, orange, red, turquoise and different shades of green. The fabric is easy to apply and ideal for use on office and conference chairs. Acton is flame retardant, wear resistant (90,000 rubs Martindale, 100,000 double rubs Wyzenbeek), light and colorfast.
Rolla is a three-dimensional geometric pattern that is highly wear resistant despite its raised texture. Rolla comes in 20 shades, ranging from neutral greys to blue, pink and orange. The Acton and Rolla colors are designed to complement each other. Like Acton, Rolla is flame retardant, wear resistant (50,000 rubs Martindale, 100,000 double rubs Wyzenbeek), light and colorfast.
Meanwhile, Dikson is a luxurious chenille blend that is soft to the touch. Yet, despite its softness, it is highly durable and wear resistant (100,000 rubs Martindale, 100,000 double rubs Wyzenbeek). The colors react to the light, giving subtly different effects under different lighting. The color palette includes warm grey and different shades of stone.
Acton and Rolla are being added to the upholstery 01 binder. Dikson is being added to the upholstery 02 binder. Vescom's current range includes wallcoverings, upholstery fabrics and curtain fabrics for the contract market.
