Harlequin develops Elita for home textiles & contract sectors

Mar '09
To meet the high demands of the home textiles and contract sectors, especially those relating to fire safety, Harlequin Harris has developed its first Trevira CS collection for architects and contract specifiers: “Elita“.

Used for curtains, cushions and bedspreads, the stylish fabrics in the “Elita“ collection take their inspiration from Art Nouveau and Art Deco motifs. Elita features four different designs, ranging from voluptuous florals and sinuous flowing curves to striking stripe combinations and all-over leaf motifs, in a fashionable palette of colours. Elita's flame retardancy ensures the whole collection can boast a high level of safety, since Trevira CS materials meet all international fire safety standards.

In addition to this, the “Elita“ fabrics can be maintained in a way that is kind to the environment. The inherent flame retardancy of Trevira CS is built indelibly into the molecular structure of the fibres, making it even more resistant to the inevitable effects of wear and tear.

The cleaning of Trevira CS textiles is environmentally friendly: it only requires low consumption of water and detergents which, combined with short drying times, results in an undisputed reduction in subsequent costs, especially when compared with other textiles.

The Harlequin Harris brand is part of the Walker Greenbank Group and stands for quality and design excellence in high-performance contract products.

The large selection of flame retardant Trevira yarns makes it possible to create designs that combine both elegance and safety. “The many different flame retardant Trevira yarns enable us now to produce designs in flame retardant qualities that are versatile and full of ideas and we can thus meet the growing demands for safety in the contract market on a high aesthetic level,“ says Carolyn Mitchell, Contracts Director of Harlequin Harris.
