Due to its special structure, Merino wool has numerous beneficial natural properties. This makes our loden fabrics an innovative and versatile fibre. We combine the know-how in the refinement of extra-fine Australian merino wool for different scopes of application. Also, the special properties of this natural resource are an ideal match for our interior collection.
Their technical properties, such as flame retardancy or abrasion resistance, make our loden fabrics particularly suitable for colourful interior collections. Therefore, they are ideal for furnishing private houses, hotels as well as commercial properties. As the largest reference project to date, the new Raiffeisen Competence Centre in Steyr, Upper Austria, was equipped with our fabrics. For this project, almost 2,000 m of fabrics from Leichtfried were used for curtains, furniture and wall coverings in the end of 2019.
Together with Hertl Architekten from Steyr, five new melange colours in quality PURE 540 (Article 16) were created for the Raiffeisen Steyr project in order to meet the wishes of the client. After approval of the colour designs at the beginning of September, we started the production. The selected colours were: 2025 (light blue), 3039 (loden green), 4040 (burgundy red), 9300 (kiwi green) and 5076 (hazelnut brown).
The opening was planned for mid-November, so curtains, furniture and wall coverings had to be produced in October 2019. We are more than happy that everything went smoothly. Today we are proud to have been part of this architectural project! Special thanks to Hertl Architekten and the Raiffeisen Competence Centre for chosing us for this new project!
