Soft, smooth and silky in look and touch, Float is a dense plain that expresses cool elegance through its fluid drape and fine shine. Made of the material lyocell, which is of botanic origin, it is constructed with a strong, durable weave. The colour palette is modulated and mirrors the organic sources used to craft the material. It comprises a subtle scale of nuances that includes Eucalyptus, Pale Khaki, Light Red Oak, Aqua and Blue Ash, Natural Offwhite and Stony Grey. Float offers multiple uses, including vibrant mix-and-match combinations with its transparent partner Floating (see next page).
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.
