Gradus Fabrics has launched a microfibre, waterproof upholstery fabric to meet the demanding performance requirements of today’s care environments.

Velesse is an impervious and highly durable fabric that has been developed to address the strict flammability, usage standards and superior handling requirements for the contract care market.

Combining strong aesthetics with performance, the Velesse upholstery fabric collection offers a contemporary design with a range of colours to create and complement an array of interior design schemes. Available in ten colourways, Velesse offers a sumptuous soft velvet feel and boasts a subtle, interlaced trellis design that brings a delicate amount of texture to all seating furniture.

The colours have been included to establish warm tones that can bring vibrancy and comfort to the interior settings of care homes. The colours include earthy rusts, olives and golds through to fresher tones of peacock and parchment.
