Upholstery and colours

Here at VELA, we have an in-house padding workshop, where we produce seats, backrests and padded accessories. We make all of our padded parts in flame-retardant and highly cleanable materials, and the wear resistance is at a minimum of 35,000 Martindale. We choose quality materials so that all our padded parts can last for many years, even when using the chair daily.

Wide range of textiles

VELA offers a vast array of textiles that fit daily use and can withstand the regular wear-and-tear that happens over time. We place great emphasis on sustainability and recycling, and therefore carefully select textiles that contribute to a future where resources are reused and recycled rather than becoming waste.

We list our standard fabrics and colours below, which we always have in stock, and which we have had good experiences using.

Renewed Loop (textile)

The innovative textile Renewed Loop, developed by the Danish textile manufacturer Gabriel, is made from upholstery remnants. This approach supports a fully circular economy by eliminating waste and reusing resources.

Renewed Loop is made from 100% recycled polyester, containing 3-10% textile waste, and is fully recyclable. This textile meets the most demanding standards for quality and design, ensuring a long lifespan and excellent performance.

Cleaned by vacuuming, professional cleaning or wiping with a clean, wrung out cloth. To preserve the fabric’s attractive colour and appearance, we recommend regular vacuuming, preferably every week, with a soft fitting.

The textile is certified by STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and the EU Ecolabel for its environmentally friendly production.

Standard colours in Renewed Loop:

Black 60999
Dark Grey 60341
Light Grey 60339
Blue 66260
Green 68285
Dark Red 64264

Mionetta satch (textile)

Mionetta is a microfiber textile from Scancoll in 100% Polyester. Its wear resistance is 35,000 Martindale. It has an excellent resistance to wear and is water repellent. We only use this textile for our children’s chairs.

It must be cleaned lightly with a clean, moist cloth without soap.

Minoetta is the standard upholstery for our children’s chairs, the VELA Tango 600 models.

The textile comes in two colours.

It is excellent for intensive use and is dirt-resistant – water and oil repellent.

Compound (artificial leather)

Compound is a durable, artificial leather from Kvadrat in 100% polyurethane. Its wear resistance is 100,000 Martindale. Compound has excellent breathability, ensuring that the seat does not feel warm when sitting on it for a longer time. Beyond this, it has good friction so that you don’t feel like you’re sliding on the textile. In addition, it is water and oil repellent as well as highly cleanable.

You clean it with warm water and a neutral cleaning agent (use a soft cloth). Disinfection is possible using 70-85% surgical alcohol and chlorine disinfectant (active chlorine at 1000-1200 ppm). After cleaning/disinfection, you must rinse it repeatedly, using cool, clean water, and lastly, it must be dried with a clean, wrung out cloth.

Note: Do not use solvent-based cleaning agents (such as turpentine).

The colours shown below are always in stock. However, if you would like other colours, this is also possible if you accept a higher cost and an extended delivery time. Contact your dealer to inquire about the possibilities.
