Melange Nap fabric


design Akira Minagawa

Designed by Akira Minagawa, Melange Nap is a woolen textile characterised by a depth of colour and surprising details. Soft and durable, Melange Nap is constructed with a unicoloured and a melange yarn, which creates a graphic pattern of tiny dots.

Akira Minagawa: "Melange Nap transforms an interior into "scenery" within its space. The colours are inspired by six elements from the natural world: Forest, Sun, Ocean, Minerals, Earth, and Dune. Each expression of the textile harmonises with its surroundings in an individual way, while creating a sense of the peace that comes from nature". 

Melange Nap is suitable for public and private spaces. It comes in a number of colours derived from upholstery textile Forest Nap, also designed by Akira Minagawa.

Consequently, they combine particularly well.

Akira Minagawa

Japanese textile and clothes designer Akira Minagawa is known for his minä perhonen fashion label, which is characterised by a romantic, slightly naïve, style. The design is detail-oriented and conscientiously worked out.

Minagawa established the minä fashion label in 1995 and eight years later he added ’perhonen’, which is Finnish for ‘butterfly’. Minagawa chose this Finnish word because he often travels in the Northern countries, where he feels in harmony with the culture and lifestyle. He felt that the butterfly was an attractive and appropriate symbol of his design, evoking the lightness and colours of his highly feminine fashion.
