RATIA, a design agency known for its Finnish design and timeless design philosophy, will exclusively introduce its fabrics for sale in all Eurokangas stores and online shop during October. The selection will include a versatile range of jersey and interior fabrics available in various colors and patterns. Customers can also order custom-made curtains and other home textiles from RATIA's interior fabrics through Eurokangas' sewing service.
RATIA, a strong domestic design agency known for its timeless and high-quality branded products, continues to reflect the handprint and design philosophy of its founder, designer Ristomatti Ratia. "The concepts we design should withstand long-term scrutiny not only in terms of quality but also in terms of design language – passing fads and disposability do not align with our notion of sustainable design," says RATIA's Managing Director, Elina Lappi.
In the selected RATIA jerseys and interior fabrics available at Eurokangas, this sustainable design philosophy is manifested in a harmonious color palette, high-quality materials, and enduring patterns. The collection's design language draws inspiration from nature, featuring numerous timeless plant and leaf motifs in the fabric patterns. Graphic designs gain strength from the choice of colors and dynamic design language. The collection includes GRS-certified upholstery fabrics, organic cotton jerseys and college fabrics, as well as BCI-certified interior cottons.
The extensive collaboration collection with Eurokangas is eagerly anticipated. "Eurokangas is a Finnish fabric retail chain with 30 stores, at the heart of which lies a wide selection and expert service. RATIA's fabrics are a very welcome addition to our already esteemed range of Finnish brand fabrics. I believe that our sewing customers will enthusiastically embrace RATIA's fabrics, and through our sewing service, we can also offer made-to-measure curtains and other interior textiles," says Daniel Ward, CEO of Eurokangas.
"It's exciting to see our designs come to life as fabrics for the first time. I'm very pleased with our collaboration and the opportunity to make our classic patterns as well as new designs widely and diversely available," says RATIA's Managing Director, Elina Lappi.
