‘It’s a recycled material world,’ says Clarke & Clarke

Clarke & Clarke continues to add to its portfolio of eco fabrics and sheers, fusing style with sustainability through recycled materials…

Chilled living area with grey surfaces

Clarke & Clarke, part of Sanderson Design Group, is known for its trend-led, stylish contract fabrics and wallpapers, transforming hospitality spaces with textural and light enhancing qualities that run seamlessly from lobby to lounge and beyond. Blending tactile woven fabrics and floaty, relaxed sheers into layered schemes, hotel interiors evolve with Clarke & Clarke fabrics, for visual and textural moments of luxury.

Now, it is ever important that the brand’s material credentials meet the standard of design. From small beginnings, the range of fabrics that embrace eco specifications is growing and Clarke & Clarke is embracing a planet positive outlook with new collections boasting recycled fibres without compromising on texture, quality and style.

Levanto sheers is a collection of the most beautiful, floaty wide width sheers. Inherently fire retardant, the fabrics are made from 100 per cent recycled fabrics, although hotel patrons will be delighted by the high-quality finish. Always focused on style, Levanto has three key designs, Diano, Rapello and Remo, that convey the lightest touch in fabrics, perfectly suited to spaces where light is invited in, and organic forms and patterns take precedence.

Diano is an elegant, woven sheer with an organic appearance and delicate watermark wash. Printed with an oversized ombre effect, it is beautifully fluid, particularly in drape form, achieved in a soft painterly effect, playing with natural and man-made lighting with aplomb. Diano comes in colourways including Azure, Blush, Charcoal, Linen, Midnight and Pebble and is made entirely from recycled FR polyester.

Rapello is a more classic textured stripe to Diano’s beachy water aesthetic. Printed vertical hues of subtle colour fuse with a woven striped effect to create interesting overlaying techniques which add depth and texture to the collection. Another 100 per cent recycled FR polyester creation, Rapello comes in matching colourways to Diano but with dramatically different effects. Azure, Blush, Charcoal, Linen, Midnight and Pebble transform against the woven stripe effect, perfect for pairing and layering in schemes.

Remo makes up the trifecta of designs in the Levanto collection. For hospitality interiors where a soft linen slub is a must, Remo is incredibly versatile as a plain sheer. Light and airy with an ease of application, it has been made from 85 per cent Recycled FR polyester and 15 per cent Recycled polyester and comes in an array of tones that can be paired up and layered, or sit beautifully on their own, delicately obscuring light and softening the vibe in the room.

For a tactile experience that packs an eco-punch, Cetara is a semi plain with sustainability at the fore, made from 60 per cent recycled polyester. Not losing any of its versatility, Cetara is produced using an interesting blend of multicoloured yarns, revealing a fabric that is soft, beautifully textural, and dual purpose. The 21 colourways on offer fit the bill for an array of hotel settings, with the multicolour yarns making this fabric super adaptable as well as stylish.

As part of Sanderson Design Group’s Live Beautiful strategy, Clarke & Clarke is striving to achieve a balance of beautiful and sustainably conscious collections. Levanto Sheers and Cetara, have been designed using innovative materials to achieve high-spec, luxurious fabrics, synonymous with the brand and the group’s values.
