Etoile is a unique textile made out of 95% copper wire. It is a transparent copper textile with a high consistency and metal effect, especially designed to be used in acrylic panels by Acrylic Couture. This fabric is very sheer has been developed in specific colours including blue, purple and orange. The fabric has been designed in a way to coat the yarn in different colours and ensure it does not react or change when it comes into contact with chemicals used in acrylic. The fabric is floated into heated acrylic to develop acrylic panels. The process is done by melting and softening the acrylic and floating the etoile fabric in the acrylic which is then cooled to form a panel. Acrylic Couture has developed a fascinating material with boundless opportunities.
All the meshes and inlays are captured inside the acrylic and float between the poles of visually-soft materiality and solid transparency. Benefit from these special properties for a surprisingly wide range of possible applications.
Etoile is a fascinating and unique material, designed for acrylic glass.
