The creative development of the new Dedar collection comes from study of the textile universe and its multiple expressive aspects, to create fabrics that are a synthesis of aesthetic and functional qualities.
The variety of the designs reflects freedom of inspiration: embroidered and printed geometric patterns, figurative designs from the archives, mysterious and graphic botanical motifs, fil coupé floral abstractions, classical citations, paillettes, piercings, metallic pigment prints, and a tribute to the textile art of Anni Albers.
“The new fabrics start with research conducted all over the world: for example, from China we have taken archival designs of Chinese screens from the 17th and 18th centuries, developed with typical yarns and printing on raw silk,” says Caterina Fabrizio.
Functional luxury sums up the character of the new flameproof fabrics, materic weaves created by starting with yarns specially developed for Dedar to bring out the unique textures, guaranteeing ease of use and long-term resistance to wear.
“The research on yarns starts with the combination of precious materials like silk with humble fibers like jute,” Raffaele Fabrizio continues. “Other new developments are the reverses (the fabric is used on both sides, generating abstract decorations) and the outdoor tricots, materic, soft, with a matelassé relief texture effect in polypropylene.”
The new outdoor fabrics are woven with a matelassé effect for extraordinary softness. Strong, washable, hypoallergenic, non-toxic, they are much more than just outdoor products: ideal in any setting in the home where the accent is on practicality, ease of use and resistance to wear.
