Artemis Laser Cut Kelp
Available from Bart Halpern Inc.
Drapery need no longer be boring flat panels that simply hang in front of a window, but can be as lively and organic as nature. The new 3D textiles by Bart Halpern will animate a room in a way that one dimensional fabrics have never been able to achieve.
The Artemis fabric collection in the “Kelp” (7000-LSK/08) style is made using the latest laser cutting techniques and use high tech flame retardant microfiber polyester taffeta, which combines the elegance and fluidity of silk with unbelievable strength. This fabric is also good for the environment as its polyester yarns are made from some recycled components. The fabric is tear proof and the laser cutting process heat seals the edges, so the fabric does not fray. The design can be machine washed on the gentle cycle and are also flame and fade retardant.
The fabric can be used in a variety of ways; as a sexy update on net curtains, or as a feature in front of another plain panel, or decoratively to run down a wall, or as a playful room divider. The fabric is available in 11 color ways and comes in 120” widths, which “railroaded” runs seamlessly across any expanse of windows or walls. Bart Halpern has 26 products in this collection including the Plain Artemis, the new Double width railroaded Medusa pleat, Kelp, Coral and Sand Dollar laser cuts and 21 coordinating pleat options. You can love over and over as you will never run out of choices.
