Watercolour is an uncomplicated translucent plain that transforms the view outside the window into a diffusion of watery colours. Complementing this eye-catching effect, in the light, alternating lines from the flame-effect yarns randomly emerge vertically and horizontally from its crisp surface.
Although the curtain has a natural, flax-like character, it is constructed with a spun, continuous filament flame retardant polyester yarn. It is floor-to-ceiling height, and when draped, its folds form flowing vertical volumes that explore the experience of texture and colour.
The soft-hued tones for Watercolour reflect its name. They range from delicate Ecru Rose and Cloud to notes such as Amber and Petal.
Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.
The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

There are differing requirements concerning the flame-retardancy of textiles dependent on the area of application, country or even region. Our textiles pass the majority of international standards and are also tested for a selection of regional requirements.

Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the curtain textile looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the textile and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.
If possible, we recommend washing curtains once a year. If used heavily, a more frequent cleaning may be appropriate. All curtain fabrics by Kvadrat and Kinnasand are supplied bearing a maintenance label. We recommend the use of a light duty detergent without optical brighteners for all items in which, according to care instructions, washing is possible. In order to reduce the risk of allergy problems, we recommend to use washing detergents that do not contain optical bleach, perfume or colorants. Please take into account a possible shrinkage between 1 – 3 %. For more detailed information, we recommend contacting a professional dry cleaner and/or laundry. A professional dry cleaner may also assist in working out maintenance schedules which ensure that the fabrics are maintained properly so that a good indoor climate and maximum duration of the curtains are achieved.
