The Aspen plaid is pure softness. Designed by Simona Cremascoli for Poltrona Frau, it is made from precious Bouclé Alpaca, part of the Loro Piana Interiors fabric collection. The collection has been developed as part of the Poltrona Frau wears Loro Piana Interiors project, created to further expand Poltrona Frau’s range of textile solutions and offer its customers even rarer and more precious sensory experiences.
The Aspen plaid was created using Bouclé Alpaca in the colours Blend Zen and Sitatunga Gold. Alpaca Bouclé is a double-sided fabric in Suri Alpaca and wool, produced using bouclé yarns.
Suri Alpaca is the finest and rarest breed, making up just 1% of the population of these animals. It is a glossy and incredibly robust fibre that is combined with wool in this particular fabric, presenting a chevron pattern on one side while sporting mélange tones on the other.
The Aspen plaid measures 140cm x 180cm and its edges play around with the different patterns on the two sides. The Poltrona Frau logo is branded on a leather tag stitched in the bottom right of the plain woven side. On the back of the plaid a label certifies the originality of the Loro Piana Interiors fabric.
