Colour Palette

Amdal Dutch Quality Group

Amdal is a light felted wool textile with a soft surface. The textile was developed with the desire for a lighter, airier, softer, exclusive and at the same time robust furniture textile. In addition, it should be "coffee safe" so that stains are not immediately visible. Amdal was designed by Per Bjørnsen in the early 2000s and received a new color palette in 2018. This comfortable and durable fabric is certainly one of our best sellers.
