In the last decade, furniture designers have begun to incorporate ropes, ribbons and cords as a favorite accessory for chairs, sofas, awnings, and other decorative pieces, even replacing wooden bases and metal structures with textile accessories. These high-end pieces have become the favorite model for hotels and restaurants to decorate their patios, terraces and gardens.
Matsa(Manufacturados Textiles S.A.), manufacturers of ribbons, cords and textile accessories with more than 70 years of history, has launched Matsa Outdoor, a collection of cords, braids, ribbons and ropes for outdoor furniture and decoration.
These textile accessories are the ideal base for chairs, sofas and armchairs thanks to the combination of the two key aspects for the success of a piece of furniture: comfortand design.
Matsa’s long background in the clothing and fashion industry has allowed it to contribute its experience and creativity to manufacture tapes and cords for furniture with innovative designsand fibers that are highly resistantto weather conditions.
The most resistant fibers for Outdoor
Normally cords or tapes with outdoor applications are exposed to extreme weather conditions. These textile accessories usually need additives so that they can withstand the effects of ultraviolet rays and do not lose their color over time.
The collection Matsa Outdoor, in addition to giving a touch of design to the space, has used synthetic fibers for its manufacture that have a high UV resistance, fade resistance, water repellency, flame retardancy and anti-stain properties: The FR polypropylene (fire retardant) anti-UV, and 100% solution dyed acrylic.
Matsa has also developed a sustainable alternativefor outdooruse: hemp cords and braids. This matter of natural origin has grown without the application of any type of fertilizer or chemical product. Hemp is the ideal natural fiber for outdoors, as it is highly resistant to exposure to extreme weather conditions. It is a “highly protective fiber that filters up to 95% of UV rays”, according to the digital platform Material District.
Round cords, braided cords, tubular cords, and flat cords
The ribbons, braids, ropes and cords of theMatsa Outdoorcollection are made of materials that are pleasant to the touch and comfortable for use as the base and structure of high-end chairs, armchairs and sofas.
Among the different designs of textile accessories for outdoor furniture, there are the following types of product:
