Intro Text (will show in Directory only):

Natural fibres offer an unparalleled luxury. Compared to synthetic products, they age beautifully and gracefully, and at the end of their life break down naturally. In the case of soft furnishings in particular, there has been a marked increase in people’s desire to introduce natural products into their homes and a clear move away from favouring synthetic materials.

“We are seeing people wanting to introduce more of the outside world to their homes to make them feel more organic and relaxed,” Furtex’s product designer Lillian Baker says. “It’s about taking time out and creating beautiful, quiet spaces with a certain calmness and serenity in the home.”

Lillian says she’s seen this desire to create an organic serenity in the home developing more and more over the last decade with people finding themselves busier in their everyday lives and relishing the little time they do have at home by creating spaces that offer a calm escape.

“We are seeing people favouring materials and products that are softer, that are organic, and that are natural rather than synthetic.”

Furtex specialises in furs and hides, and in line with the move towards organic luxury, they’ve seen interest in their Adore range of goat hide and Tibetan lamb products rise significantly.

Goat and Tibetan lamb hides offer a step away from synthetic materials and are a way to introduce softer, different textures into the home environment. “People appreciate these products because they are interesting to interact with and they add a luxuriously soft element as well as a unique personal touch to a home,” Lillian says.

Synthetic fibres have come a long way over the last few years, and many are beautiful in texture and visual appeal, but they still don’t compare with natural products. “One thing that natural fibres offer is the beautiful way they age. Lamb and goat hides don’t require any upkeep aside from keeping them out of direct sunlight and trying not to get them wet. Apart from that, a simple shake will lift the fur and restore their appearance, while removing any dirt or debris that may have come into contact with them.”

Synthetic fibres, while having a longevity in their lifespan, don’t necessarily age well. Natural fibres are the opposite, ageing gracefully, with minor imperfections adding to the natural variation and organic look and feel of the product. “These little imperfections really add character to natural soft furnishings; there’s a real beauty in them as they age. While they will eventually break down because they are natural products, it’s unusual to see any wear and tear for at least ten or twenty years. Investing in a goat or lamb hide, you’re looking at a product that in 20 years will have a beautiful, unique antique feel to it.”

Furtex is a family owned wholesale company that is now in its fourth generation of family ownership. Its Adore range incorporates cushions and hides, available in a range of colours from natural undyed options through to more vibrant options. Furtex also has an extensive range of other fur and faux-fur soft furnishings, all of which are available around the country in interior design and furniture outlets.
