Why Knits

Knits are different to what has typically been seen on the market. Consequently, the designs in collection stand out, helping you to turn a product or project into something unique.

 

Stretch

Kvadrat Febrik knits are constructed with interconnected loops that stretch in all directions. They recover their original shape once the pressure on the textile is released. The inherent stretch of knitted textiles allows for faster processing. As the knitted textile moulds and corrects during upholstery, production costs are minimised.

Texture

Due to the technique, knits have a different texture than woven textiles. The arrangement of knitting loops creates a structure on the surface which is pleasant to touch and give a rich appearance.

3D

This distinctive expression is achieved by connecting the front and back layers of the textile. Connecting loops, combined with filling yarn, bind the textile layers together to create a comfortable, voluminous appearance.

Acoustic value

Heavy, padded knitted textiles offer good sound absorption properties while flatter textiles are better when acoustic transparency is needed. Reflecting this, knits offer a compelling combination of aesthetic and acoustic performance for vertical applications.

Comfortable touch

The three-dimensional padding, stretch and the softness of the wool work to create tactility. They also combine to make knitted textiles suitable for hot and cold climates.

Sustainability

Sustainability is a key driver for our development processes. We consistently explore how to lower the carbon footprint of our knitted textiles by focusing on energy efficient processes and raw materials. For instance, this is implemented by reducing and reusing water and including rainwater in the knits' production. This approach helps to ensure our contribution to shaping a durable and responsible industry.

Our textiles are supported by various documentation such as EPD’s, Greenguard Gold, HPD’s and technical specification.  

Durable

The knits in Kvadrat Febrik collection perform to high standards and are suitable for contract use. This is because they are created using a special spinning process and offer the strong functional advantages of wool.
