Textures and finishes mutate, as ‘less is more’ becomes the mantra, but there is actually more to it than meets the eye. We are going back to our textile roots, starting over again with a little help from today’s new technical front. A strong natural mood resonates throughout this direction as an airy and micro porous surfaces compete with subtle slub effects and visual aspects. Organic textures ripple across single and double jersey in a variety of sustainable blends. Generous volumes enhance the look, through to soft touch plush appeals in the form of stretch velvet and French terry with a raw finish.

The touch and optical aspect is very natural, raw and original in touch, varying from micro to macro. There’s a determined irregularity that brings a unique aspect to fabrics, a trend still being pursued by consumers. Brushed and sueded surfaces, deliberately disheveled structures. An abstract appeal features through openwork jacquard knits and moth-eaten jersey achieved through drop stitch effects. This sense on renewal and rebirth reflects on fabrics as natural, recycled synthetics and sustainable fibers feature, perfect to be teamed with creora® eco H-550.
