Tapis adds new designs

By Rick Lundstrom

Tapis' UltrasuedeⓇ in twill is available in five colors

Tapis has expanded their UltrasuedeⓇ offerings by adding two new products: mélange and twill.

Also known as heathered fabric, mélange is traditionally made of dyed and undyed fibers weaved together inconsistently, resulting in a unique, eye-catching pattern, popular in both fashion and interiors. To create the luxurious look of mélange for Ultrasuede HP, the company employed a special screen printing. The screens allow for a consistent pattern from lot to lot. The pattern is available in five colors.

A geometric pattern is most often seen in cotton or wool fabrications, the small scale twill pattern in Ultrasuede is created with a dye print using rotary screens. Available in five colors, the pattern is evocative of a classic “zig-zag” similar to a slight herringbone textile weave used in the production of denim clothes, suiting, or the iconic wool overcoats produced in Scotland.

Ultrasuede HP is a solid fabric available in a spectrum of 97 colored and neutral hues.
