The Kailash is named after one of the tallest Tibetan mountains. This stunning silk jacquard striped strié velvet has an Ikat-inspired design and enriches Colony’s other precious silk jacquard velvets Gran Conde, Grande Unito, La Mordoree, and La Mordoree Co-ordinato. This velvet is suitable for upholstery and drapery and is available in 4 colours.

The Dreams lampas, with silk wefts and different textures, features a tribute design to the greatest artists of the Surrealist and Abstract art period. Inspiration comes from Mirò, Ernst, Dalì and Kandinsky. This fabric is suitable for upholstery and drapery and available in 4 colours.

Above: Maestrale wide-width linen sheer.

The Maestrale linen sheet has beautiful stripe and vertical texture effects made with different weft constructions thanks to the use of a dobby loom. It is available in 5 colours and is 320cm wide. Named after the Mistral, the strong, northwesterly wind that blows from southern France into the Gulf of Lion in the northern Mediterranean.

Above: K2 Trevira CV Boucle. Available in 16 versatile colours.

This soft Trevira CS Bouclé is named after the second-highest mountain in the world. The summit was first climbed by the Italian climbers Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni on the 1954 Italian expedition led by Ardito Desio. Aptly named, this soft Trevira CS Bouclé features a heavy-duty commercial strength use. It is also washable and it is available in 16 colours that complement Ladakh Bouclé that was launched last year.
