24/7 Flax

Wool and flax fibre based woven textile

Brand: Camira

Applications: Task seating & soft seating upholstery

24/7 Flax is an intuitive progression of Camira’s popular 24/7+ range. Continuing their pioneering work with bast fibres, 24/7 Flax incorporates a blend of wool and flax fibre to enhance the sustainability credentials of the fabric whilst maintaining the robust technical performance. Ideal for ‘heavy duty’ contract applications the fabric is inherently flame retardant to Medium Hazard level without post-treatments. The combination of flax yarn and crepe weave creates coloured highlights and intriguing texture.

OUR APPROACH TO ACCREDITATION

There are a number of accreditation assessments available to manufacturers. Set by third party organisations such as BREEAM, LEED, UL and C2C, they offer prospective specifiers the opportunity to understand and evaluate what sustainability standards a given material may offer their project.

Wherever possible we showcase materials that have some form of accreditation but also recognise that acquiring them can be a costly and time consuming process, particularly for smaller brands.

We believe in transparency and think that an honest approach to materiality is key to making more sustainable decisions when planning our built environments.

We seek and promote material manufacturers that:

  • Consciously endeavour to choose raw materials based on provenance and quantity required
  • Aim to reduce the energy needed and pollution created in the production and transportation of their materials
  • Reuse resources and waste
  • Create regenerative materials
  • Utilise closed-loop production methods
