Alba is an upholstery fabric for all enthusiasts of the latest trends, who would love to have a fashionable sofa or a teddy armchair in their monochrome interior, and instead of colourful contrasts, prefer to play with subtle, sophisticated combinations of shades and textures.
The return of bouclé fabrics to fashion and design reflects a wider trend focusing on the use of materials with pleasant, expressive, rich textures. Such haptic textiles allow for creating unique sensory experiences in interiors and forming spaces where you can rest your eyes and experience sensory stimuli primarily with the sense of touch.
Alba is a trendy bouclé furniture fabric with characteristic, large, irregular loops. Soft to the touch, it effectively helps to create a cosy atmosphere, especially when used on furniture with rounded, soft edges.
It is best suited for sofas or armchairs that do not require quilting or stitching – the rich texture of the fabric is so visually interesting that it does not need any additional upholstery treatments. The irregular loops on Alba's surface are also very practical in everyday use, as minor snags (e.g. made by cat claws) are unnoticeable in its rich texture.
The range of subdued, natural colours (warm shades of white, beige, grey, and graphite) and the distinct texture make it a perfect choice for the currently fashionable interiors inspired by earth tones, where designers use only two or three colours, opting for interesting texture contrasts. Alba will be a great match for smoother, suede-textured fabrics, polished wood, ceramics, and stone.
