An interview with Mohamed Kafafy, CEO and founder of Agrona
Varian®, a structuring textile, weaves together a flax thread and a composite thread obtained thanks to our patented technology. The No. 1 composite textile for soft furnishing, Varian® is a linen fabric that is core impregnated by a vegetable resin PLA (PolyLactic Acid). A real textile sheet, Varian® combines the best properties of textile (cutting, assembly, finishing) with those of resin (hot forming).
The material can be cut as desired and stitched; a zipper, eyelet or bias can be placed as with any textile. Varian® can easily take a multitude of shapes thanks to the vegetable resin. Through a simple heating process slabs are moulded, profiles folded and reliefs embossed. Our technology offers multiple other possibilities that Culture iN’s R&D division is constantly exploring.
