In the contemporary world, characterised by a strong focus on sustainability and forward-thinking, designers are presented with an unprecedented array of innovative materials.
The growing emphasis on eco-consciousness has ignited a wave of creativity and inventiveness within the textile industry. As a result, sustainable fabrics have emerged as a solution that not only minimises environmental harm but also unlocks thrilling design possibilities.
Among the trailblazers in this field is Vyva Fabrics, a company at the forefront of pushing the boundaries of sustainable material creation. Through their innovative approach, Vyva Fabrics exemplifies how design and sustainability can harmoniously coexist in today’s evolving landscape.
Founded in 1990, Vyva Fabrics originated as a supplier of upholstery materials for boats and yachts, operating from a small warehouse in a charming Dutch harbour.
Over the course of 32 years, Vyva Fabrics has evolved into a leading wholesaler specialising in the distribution and production of quality versatile fabrics suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Their new collection REVYVA and Bouclé is crafted using 100% recycled polyester yarns, derived from post-consumer plastic bottles. This innovative approach to creating fabrics from plastic waste has granted Vyva Fabrics significant certifications, such as the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certifications.
- The GRS certification ensures that REVYVA is made from recycled materials and meets high environmental and social standards.
- The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification guarantees that REVYVA is free from harmful substances, making it safe for both people and the environment.
The fabric trend of Bouclé has been sweeping across the fashion and interior design industries, making its presence felt everywhere.
With its unique texture and timeless appeal, Bouclé has become a go-to choice for those seeking a touch of elegance and sophistication in their spaces. Its popularity can be attributed to its ability to effortlessly blend classic charm with a contemporary aesthetic, making it a versatile choice for both modern and traditional designs.
Vyva Fabrics stands out as a pioneer in showcasing how design and sustainability can seamlessly coexist. Their innovative approach serves as an inspiration for the industry, demonstrating that responsible choices can lead to both aesthetic beauty and a brighter future for our planet.
