Vibrant, warm, full—Camira’s new Craggan Flax textured fabric will launch globally on January 11, 2021.
We got a sneak peek of the fabric company’s new line, and we can see how these sustainable, natural fabrics will look great no matter the sustainable interior design project.
Camira was founded in 1974 as Camborne Fabrics in the UK, and, in 1997, began its partnership with Interface before becoming Camira Fabrics in 2006. Since the beginning Camira has made its mission to create durable fabrics with eco-friendly materials clear, and Craggan Flax is no exception.
“We’re delighted to launch this new take on a beloved fabric,” says Lynn Kingdon, head of creative at Camira, in a press release. “With a long history in creating fabrics from renewable, natural materials, it is incredibly important to us that we continue to develop our offering of sustainable fabrics—and Craggan Flax is a truly beautiful addition to the collection.”
These are a few of the design details that make this fabric a favorite.
The new Craggan Flax fabric follows in the footsteps of Craggan. Made using a combination of wool and flax, the chunky weave is all natural and eco-friendly.
Craggan Flax pays homage to the original fabric while continuing to bring beauty to any space, without the need for any chemical post treatment.
Lynn says this fabric is one that can fit into any space, as it’s a “perfect fit for contemporary commercial and residential interiors in both its high-performance composition and expanded color pallet—introducing a number of deeply saturated brights alongside the timeless neutrals that have made Craggan such an enduringly popular part of our portfolio.”
