Keilhauer is excited to announce a new exclusive textile: Acoya. The high performance cover features beautiful texture and pattern to add sophistication, warmth and softness to commercial environments. The mix and match upholstery features a trend-leading color offering and exceptional durability. Acoya is an excellent selection for any number of applications.

The name Acoya is a playful acronym for “A Choose Your Own Adventure.” Like the popular storybooks from childhood, Acoya is about experimentation and choice. The mix-and-match textile features four different designs – Pixel, Scatter, Grid and Reverse – and 10 coordinated colors ranging from trendy high-energy brights to timeless soft neutrals. Print mixing and color blocking is simple  with Acoya, allowing designers to create a feeling of the unexpected while maintaining cohesion.

“We’ve been tracking an increase of designers playing with different textile covers on seats and backs. As the trend has risen, we’ve also noted the challenge designers have had finding consistency when matching patterns and colors,” says Meghan Sherwin, VP Marketing at Keilhauer. “Acoya gives designers the freedom to mix and match with certainty. The dye lots and grids are consistent to ensure you get a perfect end product every time.”

Made from over 50 per cent recycled content, Acoya is a sustainable cover solution. It is exceptionally durable and able to withstand heavy-duty abrasion. It provides excellent color fastness and resists staining. It can stand up to use in the rigorous use in high traffic areas such as education environments and training rooms.
