Velour fabrics have always exemplified advanced textile technologies. Sora, this year's novelty in our wide range of velours, is a proof that there is still room for technological innovation in this group of fabrics.
Sora is an upholstery fabric with very high abrasion resistance (> 100,000 Martindale cycles), which makes it an excellent solution for intensively used furniture and cushions, e.g. in public places. This perfectly aligns with the current trends in interior design, which emphasise the important position of various versions of velour fabrics. With such velour, you can certainly consider having cosy armchairs in a cafe or club stools in a restaurant or a pastry shop.
This pleasant-to-the-touch, knitted velour owes its high durability to the reinforcement with a soft, thick backing. This structural element of the fabric ensures its good drapability over furniture.
What makes Sora remarkable is an interesting, three-dimensional texture and irregular dyeing. This is the result of a complex production process that consists of dyeing, printing a delicate pattern, and embossing a characteristic structure. All this renders Sora a unique proposition compared to other velours, for both aesthetic and practical reasons. This fabric does not have the “ruffling” effect typical of velour, and thanks to the deep, melange colour fine dust particles are not visible on its surface.
Its colour range comprises 18 shades in black, brown, grey, beige and olive green (click here to see more). These colours are a perfect match for natural materials such as wood or leather, but also for concrete, stone, terracotta and steel. That is why Sora offers a modern take on velour fabrics suitable for boho, eclectic, industrial and loft interiors.
