This is very cool fabric with the look and feel of wool, but not the price of wool. Made of 78% post industrial recycled polyester this fabric is a great choice all around. The Ultramarine color is a kind of royal blue, bright but on the darker side. It is made for upholstery but it will work well on many projects. The feel if very flaxible and the back side could be used/shown. A great deal!
Maharam is my favorite commercial textile manufacturer of them all! I think they are most innovative and rule braking, and since we carry the largest collection of Maharam reclaimed fabrics I get to see a lot of cool fabrics by them. Here is some background as written by Maharam on their website: maharam.com
Maharam was founded in 1902 by Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant. Through the generations, Maharam evolved from a source of theatrical textiles for costume and set design in the 1940s to a pioneer of performance-driven textiles for commercial interiors in the '60s.
Maharam is recognized for its rigorous and holistic commitment to design as a leading provider of textiles to architects and interior designers. Maharam embraces a range of disciplines, from product, graphic, and digital design to art and architecture.
Maharam textiles are included in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Stedelijk Museum, among others. Maharam is the recipient of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Design Patron Award (2007) for its longstanding support of design and cultural initiatives. Maharam Agenda was published in 2011.
