Camira is set to elevate its commitment to sustainable design this Spring, with the launch of its first fabric to contain plastic sea waste.
In a pledge to clean both the earth and the ocean, Oceanic is a fabric born of the SEAQUAL Initiative to achieve a waste free environment. Woven from plastic debris found floating in our seas and post-consumer plastic bottles, destined for landfill, it’s one small drop in the mission to clean both the earth and its ocean. A recycled polyester with a purpose, Oceanic is a strikingly contemporary fabric with an intricate twill weave. Woven using SEAQUAL yarn, for every 2kgs (four metres) of Oceanic fabric sold, 1kg of waste is removed from the ocean. Taking its strength from the raw material from which it was originally created, Oceanic is a highly durable textile, tough enough for a life not only on the seas but also on the seats it furnishes. Blending a soft fluidity with a high level of performance, it is ideal for inclusion in a wide range of modern interiors.
Delicately dyed using cationic yarn, this multi-tonal textile combines and contrasts a light warp with a deeply saturated weft. With an intricate twill weave, this visual detail creates a subtle pattern – enhancing both the considered colour and careful construction of the fabric. With a refined colour selection of 16 shades, Oceanic combines muted, neutral hues with soft pastels and deep bolds to provide a versatile palette that echoes the shades visible on nature’s shoreline, as well as introducing a number of vibrant, trend-led tones.
