Journey into the great outdoors with Isla, a curated collection of luxurious 100% cotton velvets that draws its rich palette directly from the beauty of the British landscape and its creatures. Expertly woven in Holland with a specialist technique that makes it resist pressure marks and crushed fibres, it’s strong soft, breathable and has a slight stretch. Choose from a natural palette spanning warm ochre yellow Finch and deep teal blue Kingfisher to the stormy grey Steel and earthy brown of Otter.
Design & engineering
The materialsOur smooth, woven velvet is made using 100% cotton. This material gives it strength, softness, breathability and a slight stretch, but we’ve also backed it with a cotton and polyester mix for excellent structure. As well as making it practical for everyday use, its close pile helps to keep the texture of the fabric even, so it steers clear of the rippled look you get with some lower quality velvets.
Doing the right thingThe dyes used on our velvets are approved by REACH, which regulates and minimises the use of harmful chemicals.
Where we see itBecause Isla has a straight pile, you don’t have to consider its direction on upholstery, cushions or curtains, so it’s the perfect place for anywhere in the home, including well-used areas. Depending on the colour you choose, it can create all kinds of moods too, from relaxed steely grey to luxurious jewel tones, like Kingfisher blue.
