Valdese Weavers Launches First All-In-One Performance Fabric, Inside Out Performance Fabrics.

Furniture World News


Valdese Weavers, a decorative textile mill in North America, recently announced the launch of the first all-in-one performance fabric, Inside Out Performance Fabrics. Engineered to be durable enough to withstand interior wear or exterior elements, luxury is now synonymous with superior performance all while keeping the environment top of mind.

“We take great pride in our responsibility as an industry leader to bring both new and innovative products to market,” said Valdese Weavers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Blake Millinor. “Our commitment is to extend the current limits of performance and design while ultimately satisfying the needs of our customers.”

Performance fabrics are one of the fastest growing segments in the textile industry. Driven by demand, Valdese Weavers enhanced their product development capabilities through an acquisition, and after extensive market research the company has created a comprehensive and innovative performance textile.

Inside Out Performance Fabrics® distinguishes itself from the competition by using a proprietary yarn platform that offers a range of multi-fiber constructions which are all inherently cleanable and resistant to stains. In addition to exceeding all industry standards for durability and pilling, these proprietary fibers are enhanced with fade resistant technology to ensure superior colorfastness despite the end use for the fabric – living room, sunroom, or outdoor. Never sacrificing performance while keeping its focus on the environment, Inside Out Performance Fabrics® uses a plant-based, fluorine-free liquid repellent to resist everyday spills.

Made in America and using the latest in breakthrough design and technology, Inside Out Performance Fabrics® is engineered for worry-free living so that no room has to be off limits. These fabrics showcase unlimited design options that feature wide color palettes and novelty yarns, yet remain unrelenting to kids, pets, and even the outdoors.

Valdese Weavers is the leading designer and manufacturer of decorative textiles in the United States for use in residential, contract, and hospitality markets.
