Previously involved in the inaugural IdeasTrain project in 2017 – which saw a selection of Camira’s sustainable contract fabrics featured on the vehicle’s seating – the textile manufacturer has once again successfully collaborated with leading transport design studio Neomind and to produce a custom made, wire woven textile for this year’s IdeasTrain Regio.

Created to deliver a contemporary aesthetic with a sustainable composition, the wool rich fabric is a contemporary take on plush moquette, and is wire woven with a cut and loop surface. Designed to reflect the appearance of a flat cloth, whilst also creating a tactile finish through its contrasting textures, the construction is complemented by the soft grey colourway which was developed to work in harmony with natural daylight, as well as ambient artificial lighting.
