The contrast of black and white in design, graphic ambiance, geometry, light effects and elementary colours are the hallmarks of Sunbrella’s Black Attitude selection of fabrics, now available locally through ADF Advanced Designer Fabrics.The collection boasts a dusky, contemporary personality that we love. The “SWITCHÉ” and “PIQUÉ” textures are shown to full effect on simple and modern furniture. The various patterns, shades and textures elevate this collection from ordinary monotone offerings to gorgeous monochromatic magnificence. As envisioned by designer, Karen Dassy: Black Attitude draws on the elegant charm of black and white photography.vDeep and masculine, the range of coal, anthracite and ebony nuances brings out refined textures and sophisticated materials. Black attitude is the elegance of a man’s suit and the contemporary chic of an art gallery, with a subtle chiaroscuro effect. Sunbrella’s fibres are also ultra-durable through and through, steeped in quality dyes during the actual manufacturing process when the acrylic is still liquid. As a result, Sunbrella yarn is coloured all the way to the core so its original vibrancy lasts on and on. There’s absolutely no comparison to ordinary procedures whereby the yarn or fabric is simply dipped in dye which therefore only penetrates the outer layers. Tested to meet ISO 105 B02 and ISO 105 B04 standards, Sunbrella® fabrics score as follows : • UV colour fastness (ISO 105 B02) : 8/8 • Weather condition colour fastness (ISO 105 B04) : 4-5/5 More about ADF South Africa: ADF South Africa was established in 1911 as a Wool and mohair merchant.
