Sustainable Fabrics

Carnegie Fabrics recently launched Xorel Emboss. For those seeking design possibilities beyond weaving, embossing provides a sense of handmade artistry creating an interesting counterplay to this modern, technical material. Capitalizing on the properties of the content of Xorel, polyethylene, heat embossing is possible. The innovation is in the art of textile and surface design merging.

Carnegie has pushed the boundaries to create a more decorative tactile surface. At the same time, nothing has been added to the material—no additional dyes, inks or coatings. This artful process leaves intact the remarkable wear and maintenance properties of the Xorel material.
