ABSTRACT
This article reports that the company Crypton Super Fabrics has launched Crypton technology, a patented process for upholstery fabric that is stain-resistant, durable, waterproof, and odor-resistant. The fabric offers the ability to introduce woven fabrics for the senior living market striving to provide a hospitality environment while not ignoring the problems related to aging. It is not resistant to bleach solutions so its use in the acute care setting is limited. Recent introductions from the firm Sina Pearson Textiles are the Caribbean Brights, Winter Garden, Coffee, and Fossil Collections. They offer integrated lines with varied scaled patterns and textures.
