Nomen is a sumptuous, characterful curtain with a shimmering colour expression and a fine lustre. Dense and opaque, it maintains a bouncy, optimistic feel with a distinctly defined drape. The pronounced diagonal lines of the weaving design appear through a modified twill construction, which adds stability and durability. The yarns for Nomen are custom-made in a process during which contrasting coloured yarns are twisted around each other, creating a vivid dialogue and a rich Mouliné effect. The palette for Nomen comprises refined organic notes, which play with the perception of material and colour. It includes tones such as Cherry Tree, Misty Lavender, Dark Olive, Hay, Hazy Rust and Desert.
Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.
The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

Care instructions curtain textiles
Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the curtain textile looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the textile and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.
If possible, we recommend washing curtains once a year. If used heavily, a more frequent cleaning may be appropriate. All curtain fabrics by Kvadrat and Kinnasand are supplied bearing a maintenance label. We recommend the use of a light duty detergent without optical brighteners for all items in which, according to care instructions, washing is possible. In order to reduce the risk of allergy problems, we recommend to use washing detergents that do not contain optical bleach, perfume or colorants. Please take into account a possible shrinkage between 1 – 3 %. For more detailed information, we recommend contacting a professional dry cleaner and/or laundry. A professional dry cleaner may also assist in working out maintenance schedules which ensure that the fabrics are maintained properly so that a good indoor climate and maximum duration of the curtains are achieved.
