Luxury fabric specialist, Kobe, mixes the timeless stripe with sumptuous jacquard woven velvet to create its latest collection – Gabra.
Available in 21 colourways and suitable for window decoration and upholstery, the lustrous viscose pile sits on an elegant matt background to create a strong, clean design classic.
Offering exceptional durability, the fabric is suitable for severe contract usage, scoring 50,000 on the Martindale Rub Test.
Said David Harris, managing director of Kobe UK: “Gabra was previously available in three colours as part of the Nomad collection. Due to its success, we have significantly extended the range – offering a total of 21 shades – from vibrant statement tones to subtle, neutral hues.
“The stripe is one of the most versatile patterns in interior design, sitting well with both patterns and plains and Gabra can be complemented with many of Kobe’s luxurious velvets in the Aries, Beja and Inuk ranges.”
