Camira launches Sumi & Kyoto

In an exciting launch for the UK-based fabric manufacturer, Sumi & Kyoto join Camira’s collection of textiles to provide an elevated, elegantly refined aesthetic. Marrying the influence of Japanese culture with muted Scandi interiors to create an impeccably simple collection, Sumi & Kyoto are perfect for creating an oasis of calm in a chaotic time.

Woven from worsted wool, the two textiles have been crafted to work in harmony together, with Kyoto featuring a striated grid, created using an innovative printed yarn, and beautifully balanced by the simple hopsack weave of Sumi.

Designed for a multiplicity of applications, Sumi & Kyoto are certified for upholstery, vertical surfaces, curtains and drapes, and acoustic panels. As well as achieving over 200,000 Martindale abrasion cycles, they meet a wide array of key flammability standards – making these two textiles not only aesthetically versatile but also functionally fluid.

Lynn Kingdon, Head of Creative at Camira, comments on the launch:

“With this collection, we really sought to create a textile pairing that reflected the reduced aesthetics of the Scandinese movement; whilst perennially appealing, they have never felt more current than at this moment. Understated and elegantly refined, Sumi & Kyoto are truly perfect textiles for the new ‘less is more’ world we’re emerging into. Woven using fine marl yarns, the natural materials and quality craftsmanship which go into the creation of these fabrics are perfectly in tune with the increasing consumer desire – and need – for sustainable products which are designed to stand the test of time.”

Available in a highly focused palette of six neutral shades, the lightly textured mélange finish of Sumi and Kyoto is the ideal complement to this stripped-back selection of grey and brown colourways.
