Ekornes offers 2 fabrics, carefully selected in accordance with strict environmental requirements and those for resistance, look and touch. We offer a range of textures and colours to suit every taste, and many of our fabric colours are a good match to the colours in our leather collection.
The many different methods of weaving a fabric create interesting structures. Mixing different types of yarn provides a broad selection of looks and properties. We purchase fabrics from renowned manufacturers all over the world and stay up-to-date with current and upcoming trends by visiting international trade fairs and trend seminars.
All our upholstery fabrics meet Norwegian mobelfakta.no requirements for Hard Wear. To meet these requirements, the fabric must pass international tests for:
- Durability (Martindale)
- Light fastness
- Pilling resistance
- Colour fastness (wet/dry)
- Fire safety
All fabrics featuring natural, artificial, synthetic or microfibres will benefit from simple maintenance routines, enabling you to preserve their beauty.
All fabrics are subject to abrasion from regular use of the furniture. You will need to dust your furniture weekly in order to prevent microscopic dust from sticking to the fabric’s fibres and increasing the damage due to abrasion. Neglecting to do so will accelerate wear. We recommend dusting your furniture using your vacuum cleaner with a curtain or upholstery brush attachment.
Frequently used fabric upholstery must also be cleaned regularly, even if it does not look soiled. Neglecting to do so will allow stains and sweat to penetrate the fibres, causing discolouration and reducing the resistance of the fibres over time. Start cleaning your fabric upholstery as soon you see that regular dusting is no longer adequate. Use the fabric cleaner included in the Stressless Fabric Care Kit. This will prevent stains and grime penetrating the fabric’s fibres, which makes cleaning more difficult. Clean all parts of the furniture that come into contact with the body at least once every three months.
Stains can be simply and efficiently removed from fabrics using the Stressless Fabric Care Kit. The vast majority of fresh stains can be removed. The Fabric Care Kit contains specific products for all stains. Do not use other products to clean or remove stains from your Ekornes fabric. Ekornes takes no responsibility for damage caused through the use of products other than those approved by Ekornes. The Stressless Fabric Care Kit can be purchased from your Ekornes dealer.
A wool-felt fabric that feels incredibly soft against the skin with excellent elasticity. The properties of wool allow the material to breathe, thus naturally regulating the temperature.
A classic wool fabric that is also comfortable against the skin with excellent stretch properties. Like Calido, Silva is warm when it is cold and cool when it is warm, which gives a more relaxing sitting experience.
