Textyle

TEXTYLE: On Color

This year we decided to switch the focus of our monthly Textyle letters
from performance to arguably the most important aspect of design, color.

AUGUST: Orange

While orange is another one of those “advancing” colors that demand attention, it can invigorate an otherwise drab space with uplifting cheerfulness.
If the color orange could talk we’re pretty sure its tagline would be: “Look at me and be happy!”

Juicy

JULY: Reds

It’s the oldest one in the book.
Going back tens of thousands of years, red pigments were used in cave paintings, in tombs, as decoration on pottery, and body art. 
In nature, it is both a lure and a warning. It is a siren shade that draws you in. 
It is danger and it is passion and even good luck. 

The Red One

The Vermilion Vibe

The Come Hither Side

JUNE: Colors of Hope

This month’s Textyle is a little bit different.
Instead of the usual single color study, we decided to focus on a single word. 
A word we feel is always important but even more so right now.
That word is Hope.
With hope in our hearts, we set to the task of creating color palettes that portrayed elements of this word.

A Break in the Clouds

A Glimmer of Hope

A Beam of Light

MAY: Magenta

While a certain shade of pink has permeated just about every place or product you can possibly ponder lately,
it’s about time pink’s punchy cousin came back to town. 
Lookout! May-genta, or rather magenta, is popping up in color forecasts for this year
and the next two as a way to make a bright and fun statement. 
Would you expect anything less from a color like magenta?

APRIL: Terra Cotta

Red and yellow combined make orange, right?
So, it’s only natural that orange contains both the attention-seeking qualities of red and the cheerfulness of yellow. 
But today we’re not looking at the bright citrusy color that’s probably sitting in your fruit bowl.
We’re getting our hands a little dirty with the rustic tones Mother Earth has to offer…liiike terra cotta.

MARCH: Greens

Why is green a restful and soothing color?
For one, the human eye does not have to work very hard to see it since green falls in the middle of the visible spectrum of light.
Green’s ability to combine well with many other colors and its calming effect makes it an easy addition to any project.

Bright

Soft

FEBRUARY: Yellows

An ancient color with the earliest pigments originating from natural dyestuffs such as saffron and turmeric to the brighter,
more saturated pigments when the natural form of lead chromate was discovered in the early 19th century.
We have something to satisfy your brightest-of-the-bright or your most down-to-earth earthy tones.

Turmeric

Saffron

JANUARY: Blues

So if you guessed we would start with Pantone’s Color of the Year Classic Blue, give yourself a gold star for the day.
Pantone was not alone in declaring a blue as their COTY. Sherwin-Williams chose a rich navy called Naval.
PPG chose Chinese Porcelain. The only outlier is Benjamin Moore keeping pink alive with First Light.

Don’t be fooled, 2020’s blue hue is not melancholy in nature. The experts at Pantone describe Classic Blue as
a “timeless and enduring blue hue.” And in response to the fast-paced, always-on world we live in today,
Classic Blue is “imprinted in our psyches as a restful color” and offers refuge.
We pulled together a few palettes to help you do just that.

Textyle

We created this page to be an inspirational resource for your textile style, or Textyle.
See what we did there?

Monthly we will highlight a particular pattern paired with a few coordinating woven and coated fabrics.
We know how time consuming and frustrating it can be searching through fabric bins…
So, we did the work for you!

Each color palette has been carefully curated to be a beautiful ‘grab and go’ for your next project,
or that serendipitous spark of inspiration when you need it most.

Issue No. 9 The Perfect Bouclé

After a lifetime search for the perfect bouclé, we decided to design one.
The result? A bouclé that tips its hat to the tough and gritty terrain of the Southwest.
Grit, from our new Naked Spirit collection, uses Bella-Dura® yarns to create detailed texture with hidden gems of color.
Grit is naturally durable, ready to withstand the harshest environments without any additives.
Thanks to Grit and other Anzea exclusives like My Way, Morph & Metro, you don’t have to choose between style and performance.
You’re welcome.

Issue No. 8 PS(extra S)L

Splash of Green

Whether you anxiously await the return of the seasonal drink each year or you prefer your coffee sans PS, we don’t think there’s anything wrong with a little extra spice sometimes.

The main ingredient in this month’s Textyle is Dazzler.
Dazzler is a silicone polyurethane hybrid. That means it is made by combining silicone and polyurethane (in environmentally friendly processes, of course) to create a buttery soft, high performing coated fabric. 

Besides the hand, seriously you have to feel it to believe it, Dazzler is bleach cleanable and ink and denim resistant. It does NOT contain any FR, antimicrobial or antibacterial additives. Along with our three other hybrids, Dazzler is HHI, HPD and REACH compliant. 

Dazzler’s unique pattern is complemented by a mix of woven and coated fabrics rich in color and texture.

Issue No. 7 School Spirit

A new school year brings renewed school spirit and with that comes a whirlwind of school colors,
ready to sweep you up and spit you back out properly clad. 
If you’re reading this, to you school and all that comes with it means
another year of wear and tear on everything from floor to ceiling. 
While color is important, durability is even more so when designing the interior of a school.
Textyle No. 7 is for those of you looking to show your school spirit proudly
and confidently with our Too Close to Call collection leading the team.
With help from the wools, Lumber Jane and Topcoats, the versatile My Way and supportive Fionna, you can create any shade of school pride.

Issue No. 3 Mirrored Images & Outer Limits

As co-founder, creative director and president of Anzea, Mitzi Mills has designed many of her company’s most popular products.
Good times and travels to Thailand with her mother shaped one of Mitzi’s favorite designs, Mirrored Images, our first FACTS certified textile.

Issue No. 2 Catwalk

Catwalk, a couture-worthy epingle recreated for the runway. Or your office.
Epingles are woven on a wire loom with an extra beam from which supplementary yarns are released independently.
These yarns are raised over a round wire. After an inch or more of the cloth is woven, the wires are removed leaving tight horizontal rows of uncut loops. 
This slow process of weaving is rewarded with a luscious, mossy-matte surface and a thickness so durable the cloth is timeless and worthy of couture company.
