Extex launches Solar - a pioneering and stunning glow in the dark fabric set to dress decks with a striking impact. It’s the first luxurious fabric of its kind, designed and manufactured in the UK for the superyacht.

Solar is a specially hand printed fabric with a glow-in-the-dark effect that appears as a subtle and sophisticated tone-on-tone patterned fabric by day, transforming into a striking luminescent galaxy at night. When the sun is shining brightly, Solar blends with its environment and complements existing furnishings elegantly. All featuring delicate, decorative swirls, the pattern comes to life at night with a stunning neon effect that transforms decks as the sun sets.

Solar is heavily inspired by the ethereal quality of galaxies and constellations and features a swirling helix pattern, available in three light colour options; sandy hued Mars, icy grey tones in Neptune and cloudy creams in Venus. The deck of a yacht is the perfect stage for this fabulous new fabric, it’s sumptuous to touch, glamorous in use and comfortable to sit on.

The printing ink is a pioneering photo luminescent pigment that features a new type of long after-glow. With a super strong capability, the pigment absorbs solar energy, stores and automatically glows in the dark for several hours after just 5-30 minutes exposure to lights on deck or natural sunlight.

Specially hand-printed by our team of skilled craftsmen, Solar is the first Extex fabric to use a new and advanced permanent water, soil and stain repellency treatment, applied after printing. As with all Extex fabrics, Solar is able to cope with the harsh realities of yachting life, it’s water repellent, chlorine and saline durable, stain resistant, light fast, pre-shrunk and machine washable - the perfect choice of fabric for luxurious superyachts, season after season, anywhere around the globe.
