Tints by Margrethe Odgaard is a soft, matt curtain textile with a homely feel. Suitable for indoors and outdoors, it stands out for its pioneering mélange look and meticulously subtle colour blends. The construction of Tints contrasts two extremely fine twisted yarns in the weft, comprised with of two colours with a single-coloured yarn in the warp. Due to the way the different hues interact with each other, the curtain delivers a striking play of subtle yet intense tints and shades. Unlike classic mélanges, the colours are not blended in the fibres. Instead they are expressed through its structure in pattern-like fashion. With a ying-yang-like effect, the textile fuses virtual non-colours with white notes and darker hues with black. It is available in 11 versatile colourways.
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.Fire tests AS/NZS 1530.3 • BS 5867 part 2 type B • DIN 4102 B1 • EN 13 773 class 1 • IMO FTP Code 2010 Part 7 • NFPA 701 • SN 198 898 5.2 • UNI 9177 Classe 1

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.
