The mere names of the designs featured in the new outdoor fabric collection by Equipo DRT, Thira, transport us to the white cliff-top houses overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, by which they are inspired: Thira, Kameni, Santorini (ethnic designs), Elba, Mar (plain), Cabrera and Formentera (stripes).
And when we see, touch and enjoy the fabrics in the trendiest outdoor settings, we appreciate the qualities of this collection, which comprises more than forty upholstery fabrics for outdoor and even indoor use, since they are more than just a passing trend.
Thira, together with previous outdoor collections by Equipo DRT (Pitiusa, Nautica, Elba and Pireo), is certified for outdoor use by the 6-year Tempotest guarantee against colour loss.
Furthermore, thanks to their Teflon finish, these forty fabrics are waterproof and oil repellent, mould resistant and easily washable. They may even be washed using diluted bleach.
But Equipo DRT not only upholsters the summer with the Mediterranean touch inherent to Thira. The firm has also launched another significant innovation intended for outdoor design: its most exclusive 140x340ornamental printed panels, Licuala and Kentia, in Outdoor FR version.
There is no excuse for the most elegant terraces, gardens and swimming pools not to bathe in the light of the Mediterranean.
