Fil Doux Textiles, Clodagh align for new eco collection

Fabric and throw blankets designed for hospitality market

New York – Fil Doux Textiles and designer Clodagh are launching a fabric and throw collection built on their mutual fondness for the environment and design.

Dubbed Nomad, the collection comprises woven and printed cotton-blend fabrics in 15 earth-inspired colorways and a coordinating series of throw blankets. Fil Doux Textiles explained the eco upholstery and multi-purpose fabrics are woven from its proprietary FabuTouch yarn, which mixes the fibers within the yarn to create durability while maintaining a soft hand, reminiscent of residential products.Fil Doux Clodagh Nomad collection

The textural throw blankets are pre-shrunk and machine washable, making them suitable for both hospitality and residential environments.

“A nomad at heart,” Clodagh said in creating the collection, she drew on memories of her travels around the world, referencing architectural details, colors of local markets and native music.

“By weaving and printing with an eye on ancient traditions, in a sense we are uniting nations in our textiles,” said Clodagh, who has travelled to more than 100 countries.

Said Leonardo Novik, president of Fil Doux Textiles: “We’re proud of this collection, and working with a designer whose values mirror our own. It’s warm and thoughtful, and like all our offerings, upholds our high environmental standards.”
