We’ve noticed something happening in the contract textile world that is delightful and exciting. Fabric designers are drawing from the deepest parts of what makes us human to create designs that are destined to last and feel fresh as long as the fabrics themselves. These very modern feeling designs are drawn from antiquity, from a time when human hands crafted everything and machines were a thing of the future.
One such new and notable collection is Stitch from Mayer Fabrics. Designed by Jeremy Noonan, Stitch incorporates C-Zero Plus with moisture barrier, Crypton’s new, non-fluorinated performance option. The entire collection is GREENGUARD Gold Certified. Offering impermeability and best in class fluorine-free stain protection, Stitch is an excellent choice for an environmentally responsible specification.
A portion of the profits from Stitch will benefit The Common Thread For The Cure Foundation, which seeks to unite the furnishing industry in the fight against breast cancer. In that spirit, the fabric designs in Stitch celebrate the restorative qualities and resiliency of the human spirit. The collection was inspired by textile traditions of repairing and renewal. Examples of stitching, patching and layering are mending techniques that can be found throughout the history of textiles. The patterns are characterized by the use of linear elements (connections), texture (touch), and textile heritage (history).
The Stitch Collection fabrics are well suited for healthcare, hospitality, corporate and educational interiors. C-Zero Plus' innovative technology resists water-based stains and prevents moisture from sneaking beneath the surface. The new C-Zero Plus technology with moisture barrier is stocked by Mayer and is also offered to order with various additional options for flexible specification. These include:
- C-Zero Plus with odor resistance and moisture barrier
- C-Zero Plus with odor resistance
- C-Zero Plus without moisture barrier
All are fluorine-free, Made in the U.S.A. and GREENGUARD Gold Certified.
Previewed at NeoCon 2017, and launched at HD Expo this month, Stitch was honored under the Fabric & Textiles category of Interior Design Magazine’s annual Honoring Industry People & Product (HiP) Awards.
