Kayja 2 Upholstery fabric by FANNY ARONSEN
Kayja 2 Upholstery fabric
Kayja 2, an evolution of Kayja, is a contemporary and opulent tweed upholstery fabric that offers a textured look, tactile touch and an unusually soft finish. Both classic and exclusive, it is suitable for commercial, public and private spaces.
Kayja 2 is made from a blend of wool, polyester and polyamide, with the last two materials providing extra durability and strength. This versatile textile is constructed of a specially developed bouclé yarn: during the production process, rough Norwegian wool is twisted together, making small loops around a binding thread, to create the yarn. The loops are in contrasting colour to the binding thread. This creates an extremely comfortable fabric with a textured and inviting surface.
Kayja 2 comes in 11 opulent and fashionable colours, inspired by natural tones. Warm orange, deep aubergine, brick red, dark mustard green and burnt gold are complemented by more subdued tones of beige, light grey, petrol, dark blue and sand to deliver a flexible palette.
Like all FANNYARONSEN fabrics, Kayja 2 combines innovation, subtle intuition and premium quality materials, while seamlessly fitting in with the rest of the collection. For instance, it matches most shades of Sigrid 2, Vidar and Haakon and creates particularly stimulating possibilities when combined with the elegant and striking Gymer. Ultimately, with so many tones shared across the collection, Kayja 2 delivers virtually infinite combination possibilities.
Fanny Aronsen’s trademark is tactile fabrics and intriguing, colourful designs. The juxtaposition of her Scandinavian heritage and international experience is a theme often reflected in her work. Clues to her Nordic history and cultural background can often be found in her designs but, ultimately, her work transcends all borders.
Now working from her studio in Stockholm, she has lived and worked in Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam for many years. She is Professor in Textile Design at the University of Stockholm, where she lectures at the renowned Konstfack – University College of Arts, Crafts and Design.
Fanny Aronsen has received several awards for her designs, including the German Rote Punkt, the Swedish Utmärkt Svensk Form and the Dutch Mobila Innovative Prijs and Goed Industrieel Ontwerp.
