Vyva Fabrics presents the Hemp Collection, a new hemp based upholstery fabric for furnishings based on fine fibres in HEMP, the perfect link between nature and outdoor living

Contact with nature is the inspiration for this new fabric. This natural and sustainable fabric is most suitable for outdoor living because it is resistant to extreme weather conditions.
Hemp filters 95% of UV rays, is resistant to wear and tear, has strong tenacity and stability. It has been used for centuries to make cords, sails and tents.

Hemp is a very fast growing crop, producing high fibre yield per acre. According to several sources hemp can produce 250% more fibre than cotton and 600% more fibre than flax with the same amount of land. At the end of the product life cycle, it breaks down into an organic material while preserving the environment, this makes it biodegradable.

Special ‘ECO’ treatment: waterproof and stainless

  • The Hemp Collection fabrics are treated with a special ‘ECO’ finish; the raw fabric is first washed to remove any kind of wax and oil with a natural soap, extracted from lemon fermentation
  • A special silicone high concentration treatment is then applied, to create an invisible surface layer with a molecular structure 2000 times smaller than water, which gives mechanical waterproofing to the fabric surface, like water drops dancing on much smaller spheres that do not allow penetration through the fabric
  • The ‘ECO’ treatment is PFOA free, resistant to washing, safe for skin contact and respectful of the environment in compliance with the ‘REACH’ regulations

Hemp Collection consists of three different textures: Fjord & Spiced, Flora & Hortus and Botanic.

Nowadays outdoor living is much more than a trend. It’s a way of life, a concept of spirit. It is the dimension of fluid living. Being out in the open means more living, more wellness, much more lounging and cooking. Small or large outdoor spaces reflect the character, culture and personality of whoever lives there.

Vyva Fabrics Hemp Collection is the ideal fabric for living absolutely freely for every single space within the house. Its smooth equilibrium gives outdoor space the same classy elegance in living and spreads into indoor spaces like a breath of fresh air. These fabrics also have an anti-static and waterproof treatment that protects the fabric from ongoing climatic exposure. This means that dust and liquids slide off without penetrating the fibre, making it climate resistant.

Any wind is sea wind, and when it blows it fills sails and carries you far away. Vyva Fabrics Hemp Collection fabrics are ready to set sail towards new horizons.
