Patio Fabrics – Kvadrat

“Copenhagen-based designer Karina Nielsen Rios has developed a line of outdoor upholstery fabrics for Danish brand Kvadrat that are both hardwearing and eco-friendly.
 
The brand has also introduced an environmentally-focused coating for the yarn that doesn't contain fluorocarbon - a chemical finish that is typically applied to high-performance textiles to make them water, soil and oil-repellent.
Made up of compounds of fluorine and carbon, fluorocarbon finishes produce toxic by-products that persist in the environment, polluting the air and water systems.”
