#EDPicks: 10 new fabrics to indulge in right now
JAN 30, 2017 | By Nupur Ashok Sarvaiya
To help you give your home a sensorial makeover, we curated this special story in tandem with our February-March 2017 issue’s Focus on Fabrics. Deck your interiors with one or more of our favourite new textiles from both Indian and international labels to revive exhausted corners.
Introduce your home to our hottest trends with organic materials for a country home vibe, sensual fabrics for a regal appeal or geometric patterns to create perfect symmetry.
1. Safomasi’s first hand woven collection
Perfect for winters, Woven Kawaii collection is a cosy range of cotton throws, cushions and fabrics in patterns inspired by the founders’ travels in Japan. We love how the textiles induce an air of nostalgia, thanks to the brand’s popular Peace Hands motif printed on it.
2. Re- by Medium
A series envisioned by Riddhi Jain for Medium, it is crafted from upcycled net, cotton and organza, and influenced by the Wabi Sabi philosophy. Just like the Japanese school of thought, it brings out pops of colour against its earthy background hue.
3. Maharam’s Mode fabric
The American textile giant’s Mode textile series is made of 80 percent post-consumer recycled polyester. If you’re looking to transform your interiors into an organic oasis, we say this is the best pick.
4. Zeenat by Atmosphere
This plush pile from Atmosphere is spangled with tiny metallic motifs, similar to lights decorating a house of celebration, or a starry night sky. We suggest you treat yourself with this glistening material in jewel tones for a decadent snooze.
5. D’Decor’s D’Clean
Smart and gorgeous, this range from D’decor is powered with a spill and stain proof patented technology that borrows from a lotus bloom’s innate qualities. The best part is that this self-cleaning fabric line comes with a special coating to make most liquids bead up and roll off its surface.
6. Cariba series by Clarke & Clarke
Available at Maishaa, Caribacollection from Clarke & Clarke reflects has bright wavy line, rectangle, stylised leaf and floral prints in several hues to set the tone for an indulgent evening.
7. Nina Ricci’s Chimere linens
You’ll succumb to Parisian magnetism with European fashion house Nina Ricci’s home line, Nina Ricci Maison. Unveiling its first exclusive outlet in India at Surprise Home Linen, Mumbai, the brand’s Chimere bedsheets, cushion covers, duvets and soft towels woven in Egyptian cotton are available in classic palettes and perfect for sinking into pure luxury.
8. Sarita Handa’s latest line
Best quality materials accented with gorgeous geometric prints ensure Sarita Handa’s newest line is an elegant choice for every boudoir. The patterns in sunny hues will surely conjure up images of spring in your room.
9. Hermes’ maiden Outdoor line
Designers Philippe Mouquet and Anamorphee envisioned the first collection of furnishings for luxury brand Hermes. Best suited for outdoor use, this range is light, water, chlorine and friction resistant. The interplay of daring graphic patterns on polyester caught our eye for being unabashedly bold.

10. Concept Essentials by The Pure Concept
This line by The Pure Concept comprises a broad variety of raw and burnished linens, wools, chenilles and lush velvets. If you’re an arbiter of all things geometry, the textiles with checks in the same shade are a great option for you.
