Shortlist Success For Extex in the International Product Design Awards 2014

Extex have been successfully shortlisted in the ‘Fabric’ category of the International Product Design Awards 2014.

Launched in June 2013 their project  ‘Solar’ is a pioneering and stunning glow in the dark fabric with a striking impact. It’s the first luxurious fabric of its kind, designed and manufactured in the UK. Solar is a specially hand printed fabric with a glow-in-the-dark effect that appears as a subtle and sophisticated tone-on-tone patterned fabric by day, transforming into a striking luminescent galaxy at night.

The printing ink is a pioneering photo luminescent pigment that features a new type of long after-glow. With a super strong capability, the pigment absorbs solar energy, stores and automatically glows in the dark for several hours after just 5-30 minutes exposure to lights on deck or natural sunlight.  Solar is the first Extex fabric to use a new and advanced permanent water, soil and stain repellency treatment applied after printing.

The brief was to launch a new fabric collection that complemented EXTEX’s existing collections, however they wanted something new and innovative that hadn’t been seen before.
