    Fameed Khalique, specialist in innovative and inspiring surface materials introduces a pioneering collection of luxury outdoor fabrics by Chella Textiles to the UK. This outstanding and exceptionally durable collection contains the industry’s first solution-dyed acrylic fabrics guaranteed not to fade and to withstand harsh treatment from sun, rain, freezing temperatures and wear and tear.

    The technical bit…
    Whilst most fabrics are created from fibres that are initially colourless and then dyed, these solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are created when a liquid acrylic solution is combined with precisely-determined colours before the coloured liquid is transformed into fibres.

    The fabrics are unique…
    These fabrics marry technological innovation with style with over 200 traditional and contemporary designs available, including Solids & Textures, Stripes, Sheers and Patterns. Despite being made out of acrylic, the fabrics recreate natural fibre constructions like linen, velvet and chenille so they look and feel astonishingly natural and are supremely soft to the touch. The fabrics offer something new, beautiful and of utmost quality for both residential and commercial projects, from hotel suites, terraces, pool and spa areas, bathrooms, family rooms and nurseries.

    All fabrics are guaranteed not to fade when exposed to sunlight or attract mildew, meaning they can be left out all year round, even bleach won’t affect the solution-dye colour and all fabrics are machine-washable. Custom bespoke patterns and colours are available upon request from Fameed Khalique.

    Finishing touches…
    Woven from the same solution-dyed acrylic yarns, the Finishing Touch Trim Collection is designed to withstand the elements come rain or shine. The collection is comprised of seven styles of braid, tape, fringe and tie-backs of hand-carved mahogany and opalized quartz, which complement every colour palette.
