Nano-Tex Expands Into Commercial Interiors; Leading Textile Companies to Offer Nano-Tex Enhanced Fabric at HD 2006 Expo
Nano-Tex enhanced textiles have been a significant source of growth in the apparel industry allowing designers to utilize the latest technology to incorporate superior performance characteristics into fashion at a time when manufacturers and consumers want more, in terms of style, function and durability, from clothing. Nano-Tex's stain resistant fabric treatment is also ideally suited for interiors because it gives designers greater flexibility to work with a wider variety of colors, textures and weaves. With Nano-Tex enhanced fabric, textiles ordinarily considered "off-limits" for commercial interiors -- such as light colored or delicate fabrics -- are now accessible, giving the design community greater creative freedom to realize their artistic vision. Transparent to the eye and indistinguishable to the touch, Nano-Tex's stain resistant fabric treatment delivers the market's highest level of stain repellency and durability to protect fabrics from everyday spills and stains making it a logical choice for high-use and high traffic areas.
“Commercial interior designers, like apparel designers, appreciate that Nano-Tex stain resistant fabric treatment gives them greater freedom and flexibility to realize both their artistic vision and their desire to keep beautiful things beautiful.”
"The migration of enhanced textiles from apparel into commercial interiors is a natural evolution for Nano-Tex because both industries share a design and fashion sensibility," said Renee DeLack Hultin, executive vice president of global sales. "Commercial interior designers, like apparel designers, appreciate that Nano-Tex stain resistant fabric treatment gives them greater freedom and flexibility to realize both their artistic vision and their desire to keep beautiful things beautiful."
