It’s smooth like a leather, cool like a leather, but it’s actually…fabric?
Here at Red Knot we have a selection of furniture pieces that feature a relatively new, high performance fabric called Ariapell. It has quickly become popular among customers who want something that is a nice in between a traditional fabric and leather – you get the look and feel of leather but the affordability and maintenance of a fabric.
A blend of polyester and polyurethane, Ariapell is smooth to the touch and feels just like leather. In fact, some people don’t believe us when we tell them it’s actually just fabric! Besides the affordable cost of Ariapell compared to leather, one of it’s best features is it’s a breathable fabric! This is one of the biggest concerns people have with living in a hot and humid place like Hawaii.
Maintenance with this fabric is a breeze! It’s easy to clean and wipe things off because of it’s finish which makes it easier to take care off on a day-to-day basis. You also don’t need to worry about conditioning it every few months like you would with any leather pieces, so that’s definitely a nice plus.
Ariapell comes from one of our fan favorite vendors, Violino. While we only currently have three different frames in our showrooms that are stocked in the Ariapell fabric, with our special order program you can order this fabric in a multitude of different colors on any of our many Violino frames.
