This velour fabric is made to 70 per cent from used PET bottles and is both weatherproof and lightfast, thus making it appropriate for indoor and outdoor use. The flame-retardant fabric can be used in public areas as a decorative and an upholstery fabric. It has a pleasant supple feel and, thanks to the fine pile, the colours look luminous and vivid. It comes in a choice of 30 colours ranging from neutral natural shades to vibrant outdoor hues and elegant, classic velvet tones.
