Vescom has introduced the new Balta upholstery fabric. This wool blend (80% wool / 20% polyamide) with a fine and soft structure is available in 19 business-like but pleasant and soft tints.
Balta has a woollen touch. The design consists of blue, grey and black blended tints, strong natural colours and a number of soft but fresh colours. Balta has excellent abrasion properties (Martindale > 100,000 rubs) and, therefore, is suitable for use in an office environment. Balta has also had good results with regard to pilling and fastness to rubbing.
The Balta design is being added to the upholstery 01 binder. Vescom's current range extends to wallcoverings, upholstery fabrics and curtain fabrics for the contract market.
