Designtex’s window coverings comprise a select group of styles encompassing both versatile workhorses and more innovative designs. The classics range from translucent shades and screens featuring subdued textures, to rich drapes that offer intense colors, and a plush, velvety hand.
The more innovative offerings include Chiyogami and Kabuto (Origami Collection), which are woven with an exclusive production and finishing process to create their distinctive origami-inspired forms. When installed as a drapery, the fabric’s regular angled surfaces are engineered to provide acoustic absorption. The unique method of shaping the pleats results in a three-dimensional textile with striking structural qualities, accentuated by the play of light and shadow. The crisp lines that define the angled surfaces are highlighted by color accents, giving the fabrics a dramatic three-dimensional effect that evokes the art of traditional Japanese paper folding.
