Vescom has been the expert in weaving mohair velvet fabrics for decades. Zanzibar and Ariana are the tangible proof of this. Luxurious, high quality and natural. Soft, pleasant, comfortable, chic and very durable. Zanzibar is well-known for its matt look and can therefore be used in many locations, meeting all demands. The completely new colour pallet includes pastel colours ranging from soft neutrals to colour accents such as spiced honey, cinnamon, petrol and burgundy red.

Ariana is world renowned due its glossy look and feel. The updated colour pallet includes 35 colours ranging from chic pastel and powder hues to accents such as rust, petrol, emerald green, mauve, violet and pink. Both fabrics are durable, strong, with a high abrasion resistance and come into their own in a theatre or hospitality environment because of their acoustic values.

Classic Lani is now available in a completely new colour collection. This upholstery fabric is a woven wool felt with a clear woven look and a very high abrasion resistance: 250,000 rubs (Martindale). Lani is an unpatterned fabric when compared to Vescom’s wool blends Lamu and Wolin. The colour pallet has been updated with 56 soft and comfortable colours that are perfect for office and hospitality environments.

New Upholstery

There are also three new upholstery fabrics, very strong and easy to apply. Newcomers Eliot, Burton and Noss can be easily combined together and are easily upholstered. The fabrics are very strong, extremely abrasion resistant, 100% flame retardant and easy to use. The fabrics also offer excellent soil hiding characteristics combining practicality with beauty.

Eliot is a bouclé with a modern graphic look and a crisp feel. Eliot looks sporty and robust and office environments and modern hotel interiors are the perfect setting for it. The fabric is available in 18 colours with powerful accents such as bright blue, yellow, copper orange and coral red. Burton which harmonises with Eliot is an overall blended bouclé and is available in 23 full colours such as coral red and fresh yellow. The two fabrics work perfectly together and on their own, increasing flexibility with a stylish twist.

Noss is a chenille with a soft touch that is still very strong despite its softness. This fabric is ideal for high end residential and the hospitality market where performance and beauty are essential requirements. The collection offers 24 colours including, in particular, greyed colours and powder-like pastels.
