Inspiration for Hobson came from blending an old Scottish herringbone pattern typically seen in vintage menswear with new yarn technology, evoking classic suiting and sophisticated settings. The use of REPREVE® polyester breathes new life into recycled raw materials, without sacrificing performance, for a material that is truly timeless. Hobson’s extensive color palette nods to classic neutrals but pushes new color trends and saturated color. REPREVE® Our Ocean® yarn is a premium collection of fiber and resin sourced from bottles at high risk of entering the ocean. The waste is collected, sorted, and cleaned; then extruded into new fibers, yarn, and fabric. Each yard of Hobson diverts 33 plastic bottles from entering our waterways.
This fabric’s name transpired from “novelty yarn,” which implies a decorative yarn is used in the textile. In our construction, the fancy yarn is a boucle, which is French for “curl.” Inspired by classic boucle fabrics that span residential and commercial uses, Novelty’s highly textural surface was designed to showcase new yarn developments. Nearly half of its content comes from REPREVE® recycled fiber, which means 17 plastic bottles per yard are diverted from landfill. The plush yarn lends an organic quality to the otherwise structural dobby weave. The result is a non-directional pattern, juxtaposed with heavy and fine yarn weights in the warp and fill, which contributes to the fabric’s versatility in a variety of applications.
Scapes is a proprietary, dual-purpose, bleach cleanable fabric in 16 colorways made from 100% post-consumer recycled biodegradable polyester.* Part of the CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES™ Biodegradable line, Scapes carries a compelling eco story. In the bi-circular textile economy model, if not processed through a technical textiles recycling processes, the fabric will biodegrade rapidly in the landfill. The organic matelassé design, inspired by nature, captures light and shadow, while adding dimension and warmth to products and space. Scapes is as beautiful up close as it is from afar.*91% biodegradation in 1,278 days under ASTM D5511 conditions. No evidence of further degradation.

Oceanic is a fabric born of the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE, whose mission is to fight plastic pollution for cleaner oceans. Through a partnership with textile manufacturer Camira, Oceanic is created entirely from plastic debris collected from the oceans and discarded water bottles destined for landfill—a combination which is the basis for SEAQUAL YARN. Oceanic is a direct response to the plastic waste problem, demonstrating one way our industry can address this issue and help offset its effects.
Protected by Crypton technology, our standard leathers bring lasting beauty, warmth, and character to any space—even high-traffic areas. Unlike active treatments that use heavy metals, passive Crypton performance technology uses a solvent-free, water-based formula to embed protection in the leather during the finishing process without compromising look and feel—and there’s no chemical smell. Lasting the life of the product, it will never wear off. The leather is completely sealed, making it resistant to stains, spills, and even bacteria. Our standard leathers are also easily cleanable with a bleach solution, as well as other commercial and household cleaners.
