DuraCord fabrics coming to Chicago
Staff Staff -- Casual Living, June 1, 2007
The new collection includes Onyx Bay, inspired by the contrast of black and natural. The Onyx Bay line begins with Jasper, a cardinal red and black railroad stripe with hues of oatmeal and deep gold. A fleck effect of cardinal red, oatmeal and deep gold tear drop designs placed on a black backdrop create Ruby Coast, for a high-fashion look.
Dual-toned Harbor contains leaf-like patterns in a zebra leaf effect of deep gold and oatmeal.
Alli is an exciting animal print with an allover pattern of black and oatmeal. Sakura is a field of large flowers in oatmeal on a black background. Chateau has soft stripes, creating a diamond-like pattern on an oatmeal backdrop. Each of these designs is woven to be reversible.
Maritime and Woodlands finish the collection with oatmeal and black weaves. Maritime incorporates simple, horizontal stripes, and Woodlands is a high-contrast multi-yarn weave.
DuraCord, a division of Greenville, N.C.-based The HammockSource, touts its products as "designs built for the outdoors yet soft as cotton." Soil and stains can be cleaned with soap and water, or with a bleach solution, if needed, and are suitable for indoor residential upholstery, outdoor furniture and cushions, contract and marine upholstery.
