New High-Performance Textiles by Brentano
Performance collection expands with usable and fresh textiles
Woven from 100% high energy-dyed polyester, Polka is a small-scale, geometric pattern that is well-priced, bleach cleanable, and has both a Nano-Tex and DuraBlock finish. This 54” upholstery comes in 8 energetic colors and will add liveliness to contract areas or high-traffic residential applications. Passes 50,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).
Like the conductor in an orchestra, Maestro gets the job done no matter how high the stakes. This 100% polyester chenille comes in 9 practical colors and has a Teflon finish while maintaining a soft hand. Light bounces off the matte texture to create a 3D, suede-like effect, but for an exceptional price. Maestro measures 56” and has an outstanding wearability of over 75,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Teflon finish increases stain resistance.
Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house. Brentano's fabrics stem from Wang's philosophy of balancing beauty + performance. Their growing collection of eco-fabrics expands this ideology by demanding textiles meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty. Having celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2010, Brentano continues to offer a variety of innovative and interesting textiles, including eco-friendly faux leather, high performance upholstery, fire-resistant, outdoor, Crypton, Nano-Tex and GreenShield fabrics.
