Linen is the world’s most ancient and most resistant fabric: it offers dimensional stability, high mechanical resistance and is long-lasting. This fibre has heat-adjusting properties which, when combined with an ability to absorb humidity, makes it comfortable in all seasons.
When compared to all textile fibres, linen is the most environmentally friendly: growing flax does not damage the earth, its transformation does not damage the ecosystem and the resulting products are biodegradable.
The 100% linen used to upholster the pouffes and benches by JEMA Design is made and processed exclusively in Italy.
This fabric has been designed to have a marbled effect and non-uniform colouring, as it undergoes a special dyeing and finishing procedure that makes our linen upholstery unique and irresistible. This is precisely why any uneven colouring and folds or discolouring should not be considered defects, but rather a typical feature of this type of processing.
Velvet has always been a symbol of luxury and richness; it is a fabric that brings refined elegance to your interiors.
The pure minimalism of the structures is warmed by the soft shapes and sinuous lines of the seats, bringing comfort and appealing aesthetics to the space. A current design, that is also warm and welcoming.
We have selected a highly resistant and easily maintained velvet for our pouffes and benches, designed to meet the most demanding of needs in terms of performance and certification without compromising on the refined, soft look maintained throughout the home fabrics collection.
This collection of textiles is able to combine elegance, enveloping woven patterns, prestigious fabrics more commonly limited to residential contexts, and high technical performance usually found in large turnkey designs.
Our velvet upholstery complies with all of the most stringent international regulations regarding upholstery fabrics in large turnkey projects. It is completely fire-proof and easy to maintain. It is resistant to tears (UNI EN ISO 13937-3), traction (EN ISO 13934-1), and abrasion (UNI EN ISO 12947-2) and has high colour fastness if rubbed or exposed to light.
For our outdoor furniture we offer specific, carefully researched materials: they are long-lasting, functional and high quality, to make sure the time you spend en plein air is both safe and enjoyable.
The faux leather used for the JEMA Design Outdoor collection is waterproof, fire-resistant, resistant to weathering and UV rays, and phthalate-free.
The waterproof Outdoor fabrics have been designed to be resistant to sunlight, mould growth, and the chemical agents in the air.
