Press Release November 2011 TFL Colour Trends Spring/Summer 2013 TFL has released its new TFL Colour Trends catalogue for the season Spring/Summer 2013. In the catalogue, TFL presents the colour trends for the leather garment, footwear, accessory and additionally for the upholstery industry. We have divided the colour trends into “Wearing” and “Living”, devoting a section to each within the publication. “Wearing” comprises inspirations and colour trends for garments, footwear and accessories. The “Living” section features all colours that will decorate the season’s interior design. In “Living” the current trend is defined by lightweight cowhides, soft and supple to the touch, allowing to create both ordinary and extraordinary shapes by offering an intrinsic value to the concept of the “memory” project. Colours, textures and translucent effects of vintage inspired buffalo skins, luxurious lambskin, metallic and mat-finished decorative pillows and home accents, large scale full grain hides (such as elephant, turtle and bison) are coated with a semi-gloss/semi-precious wax finishing. The colours range from beige and brown tones to orange. In “Wearing” we will combine the femininity of pearl-like colors with retanned buffalo leather and lamb nappa, offering a sense of weightlessness, as well as the practical anti-stain finishing. Natural aspects, though classic for every season, have been incorporated into soft suede and nubuck surfaces combining earth tones with threedimensional prints of small reptiles, dragonfly wings and crocodile, treated with oilwater repellent or washable finishing. The colours range from various red and orange tones to pastel tones In addition, we are featuring the TFL SELLA® FAST A range which is a supplementary range to our traditional classic dyes, which addresses the tanner’s needs for economic dyeing. The TFL Colour Trends catalogue is now available. For further details please have a look at www.tfl.com.
