Back to Basics
By Luise Stromberg
Be it Picasso or Descartes, Euclid or DaVinci, the artist and the scientist both depend upon basic geometric principles to define space. From a single point in space to the multiple lines of a grid or the curve on a graph, the foundation of creativity starts with these basic elements. From painters to physicists, blank canvases are filled with points, lines, grids and curves. Each pattern of the Back to Basics™ Collection highlights one of these elements, celebrating its essence and reminding us that beginnings are beautiful things.
Abrasion resistance is the surface wear of a fabric caused by rubbing and contact with another fabric.
*Multiple factors affect fabric durability and appearance retention, including end-user application and proper maintenance. Wyzenbeek results above 100,000 double rubs have not been shown to be a reliable indicator of increased fabric lifespan.
Flame resistance is the measurement of a fabric's performance when it is exposed to specific sources of ignition.
Crocking is the transfer of dye from the surface of a dyed or printed fabric onto another surface by rubbing.
Seam slippage is the movement of yarns in a fabric that occurs when it is pulled apart at a seam.
Colorfastness to light refers to a material's degree of resistance to the fading effect of light.
