Celeste flame retardant dimout has been specially selected for its’ broad colour palette, soft handle and elegant drape, as a perfect, simple, textured solution for contract curtains. With a soft weave similar to the Sera quality from Skopos, Celeste provides greater choice for curtains in contract settings.

As a dimout, Celeste fabrics will significantly reduce light transmission in a room, without sending the room into complete darkness. The Skopos dimout fabrics provide up to 97 per cent light reduction, maintaining full privacy, but allowing nature just to nudge through. For full blackout, however, Celeste can be lined and installed using smart tracks and pelmets to minimise the glow. Celeste is offered wide width, to minimise sewing time and has a coloured reverse to give a neat appearance externally and joins Kiara as one of the new dimouts, introduced to broaden the brands offer.

With thermal properties, dimout fabrics help keep heat within the room, as well as providing a neat visual finishing solution. Celeste and Kiara also provide an effective acoustic solution, increasing sound absorption within commercial spaces. The Celeste quality also works perfectly for bed throws, providing a neat, simple finishing touch. The fabric will be available in 21 colourways, complimenting Skopos’ other weaves and printed designs within the range.

Washable to 30 degrees Celsius, the collection meets the requirements for Flame Retardancy standards across the UK and Europe, and meets IMO standards, for marine/cruise-line interiors. Available immediately, with short lead-times for larger order quantities, with a copy of the collection shade-card available on request.
