Habiba Nowrose from Dhaka, Bangladesh photographs from the lens of women’s rights. Her portraits are rich with motifs that signify personality, from bright flowers to colorful garments. But the most identifying aspect of the Nowrose’s subjects are missing — her models’ faces are covered with fabric, leaving only an outline of a figure behind. Her series “Concealed” reflects on women’s personal sacrifices to meet societal expectations. This assimilation leaves the faceless subject anonymous to themselves, and their viewers.

High-System PU (Polyuretan) Modern artificial leathers are coated with polyurethane (PU) instead of PVC, as PU is much more environmentally friendly in production, use and disposal. Conventional PU, however, has the disadvantage that moisture and bacteria can penetrate through the openness of the pores and thus permanently damage the PU. A new manufacturing process enables PU artificial leather to be produced with closed pores, so that there are no fractures in the surface – it is much more durable and hard-wearing. Our artificial leathers SOLO, KANO, JAGO, ENA and ROMY have been produced with this special PU manufacturing process, called High System PU.
Our modern faux leathers are also particularly soft and insensitive to soiling. They are quick and easy to clean. With over 300,000 rubbing cycles, our faux leathers are durable and robust. Due to their permanent bi-elasticity, the materials can be easily upholstered according to all processes customary in the upholstery industry. The advantages of High System PU faux leather are:
free of phthalate
high and permanent elongation
insulating against cold
PU is recyclable
Romy has a beautifully grained, matt surface that can hardly be distinguished haptically from genuine leather. The leather look is supported by warm natural shades.
Ena, on the other hand, is modern and bold with its smooth, metallic surface and strong accentuated colours. In addition to the classic metallic tones such as gold, copper and silver, strong tones such as orange and red stand out.
Jago has a natural leather apperance; its slight vintage look makes it extremely suitable for the furnishing of a modern hotel. It is ideal for headboards, bed surrounds and seating furniture of all kind. The authenticity of the faux leather is underlined by the colour range which concentrates on natural and grey tones.
Kano is a faux leather with a fine graphically embossed structure and a modern metallic sheen. The colour range comprises metal tones such as steel, titanium, silver and bronze as well as black and white.
Solo has a large colour palette with strong colours paired with natural leather tones. Solo is particularly beautiful in combination with upholstery fabrics from the DELIGARD series.
Colourline is an imitation leather made of PVC which is extremely durable. It stands out due its good resistance to weather influence, UV light, water, heat, cold and chemicals. 70 colours offer extensive design possibilities.
Butler, a formally trained African American artist of Ghanaian heritage, broaches the dividing line between creating with paints on canvas and creating with fiber by fashioning magnificent quilts and elevating a medium hitherto designated as craft into one that is clearly high art. While quilts have historically been isolated in the history of art as the products of working women, Butler’s work not only acknowledges this tradition, but also reinvents it. Continuing with an aesthetic set in motion by artists such as Romare Bearden and Faith Ringgold, Butler forges an individual and expressive signature style that draws upon her own cultural background and experiences.
Her emergence as a quilt artist began humbly when, as a result of a fiber arts class taken at Howard University, she constructed a quilt for her dying grandmother mainly as a means of comfort. As a child Butler had often spent time poring over black and white photographs with her grandmother, who told her stories about the people in each one. This experience of creating narrative and identity informs her quilts. The vibrant portraits of African American life and the tales the quilts tell are largely based on photographs from which Butler takes inspiration. She creates a story around each image, and, in her choice of fabrics, she uses texture, color and the cultural origin of the cloth as part of a personal iconography that makes statements about society and identity. African painted cotton and mud cloth tells the story of her ancestral homeland, vintage lace and aged satin might demonstrate the delicacy and refinement of times past while multi-colored organza and layered netting can convey a story of someone colorful and multifaceted.The constructed nature of the work with its reliance on piecing and stitching acknowledges the traditions of needlework normally associated with women and domesticity. Butler subverts this notion through her choice of motifs, embellishments, patterning and scale, all drawn from African textiles.What results are stunning works that transform family memories and cultural practices into works of social statement.

Dutch artist Aliki van der Kruijs has found a way to map the weather by capturing raindrops in ink on to textiles, which can then be worn.
In order to do this, the artist developed her own technique called pluviagraphy – drawing with rain. Using a film coating that is sensitive to water, it becomes possible to create a visual recording of rainfall on a filmed piece of textile. Whether it’s a soft drizzle or a tropical downpour, the type of rain creates a unique print.
Aliki van der Kruijs’ collection of rain textile prints, Made by Rain, are 100% silk, handmade and customised with time, location, mm of rainfall, and weather circumstances under which the pluviagraphy was done. This way, the textiles form a collection of weather data – visual recordings of a specific day in history.
The Hague-based artist’s fascination with the weather started when she inherited twelve calendars from her grandfather. On each calendar, he had meticulously described the weather on every single day of that calendar year, creating a detailed collection of weather data that covered twelve years.
While researching the weather, Aliki van der Kruijs discovered that rainfall in the Netherlands since the 1950s has increased by around 4% due to climate change. But the only way to display this change is by weather charts, satellite images and graphs.
Aliki van der Kruijs says: “The rainfall itself is an immaterial event that cannot be archived, only remembered.”

Latitude 48° N is the new outdoor collection of DELIUS – a collection which is a leader in its field. It not only comprises all the most important outdoor requirements but it is also flame-retardant.
Latitude 48° N are the coordinates of Paris; this is the city where the idea of an innovative Inside-out collection was born and where it started its voyage around the world.
DELIMAR outdoor fabrics were developed for hotels, restaurants, lounges and pools. IMO Certificates are a prerequisite for the use on cruise ships. The fabrics are not only flame retardant but they also contain important properties for outdoor use such as chloride- and seawater fastness, an excellent light and weather resistance.
The designs can be machine washed at 40°C and they dry quickly so that bacteria and mould cannot develop.
DELIMAR fabrics are free of harmful substances and do not cause allergies, they are anti-static and water-repellent. All articles of this collection are made out of the innovative fibre Polyolefinic FR; the positive properties of this fibre are permanently inherent.
Latitude 48° N is characterised by Parisian chic which impresses both indoor as well as outside. The transition from indoor to outside becomes harmonious. Lively designs are complemented by structured plains and melange fabrics in exciting colours. The collection offers four succinct designs: a structured stripe, two graphic designs and a fabric in 3-D-optic. Two wonderfully structured plains form the perfect link between the designs.
The collection consists of six exciting colour themes. Colour combinations such as lime and aqua as well as orange and pink reflect cheerful summer colours. The combination of navy and a strong white is a marine classic. The classical design colours black, white and silver grey appear modern and futuristic. All five colour themes are combined with natural tones.
• weather resistant
• high colour fastness to sea water and chlorinated water
• high light fastness
• extremely wear-resistant
