We are pleased to present CENTO, a collection celebrating the 100th anniversary since the founding of Clerici Tessuto: ten precious fabrics that, through the names of Tessuto family members and company locations, tell the story of the company’s world.
The collection includes sought-after high-performance fabrics and ranges from velvets to silks, from jacquards to prints, from patterns to solids, interpreting the latest trends in the decoration fabric scene with skill and attention to detail.
CENTO opens with Alessandro, a flagship article named after the current President: a jacquard depicting a forest in warm, elegant tones, blending classicism and innovation, color and materiality. Alessandro is designed to be coordinated with two other fabrics, Alberto and Belvedere.
Alberto, named after the President’s brother, is a solid-color fabric with a three-dimensional appearance and an elegant abstract design inspired by the celestial vault. Alberto is presented in two variants, one with cool tones and one with warm, refined tones, suitable for rooms with natural colors. Belvedere is a fabric that recalls the land on which Clerici Tessuto’s headquarters is located: a coordinated pattern that evokes the bond with the family and the land of origin, rendered with textures and designs in multiple colors.
Homage to the first generation of the entrepreneurial family is found in Rachele and Eugenio: Rachele is a reinterpretation of the classic 100% polyester FR plain, featuring a soft hand and the characteristic blazed look of shantung. It is offered in twenty-five colors ranging from neutral to classic tones, concluding with vibrant shades reminiscent of Indian colors and some double-faced variations. Eugenio is a print on cotton satin with a watercolor design depicting a view of the city of Como in three variations: Winter, with cool tones; Spring, with crisp and cool tones; and Summer, with warm and enveloping tones.
The new generations are represented by fabrics named after Tessuto grandchildren: Filippo and Niccolò. Filippo is a playful print with circus motifs on a soft cotton, offered in three color variants: a classic cream, a precious gold and an original amaranth; Niccolò is a jacquard on a cotton and polyester base, recalling the romantic landscape of Como, with rolling hills and small trees. It comes in six variations, all of which can be coordinated with the solids and some of the jacquards in the CENTO collection.
Completing the familiar picture is Cristina, a fabric dedicated to the President’s sister, a vintage-inspired cotton-linen velvet plain weave with great durability performance, thanks to the high Martindale, and Gottardo, a print on cotton velvet that pays homage to the Villa Guardia headquarters and represents a spreading wave of light, to evoke the worldwide spread of Clerici Tessuto’s achievements. Gottardo is printed on a cotton velvet ground and features a high Martindale of 40,000 rpm. It comes in three colors: gray, blue and a golden neutral, which can be coordinated with the other fabrics in the CENTO collection.
The collection is complemented by a mini capsule of linen and linen-blend drapery fabrics, taken from the historical archives of BROCHIER COMO and reinterpreted in a contemporary key through trendy colors.
We are pleased to invite you to discover the new Cento Collection during Paris Deco Off 2023.
