About Agua Fabrics
Agua is the London based market leader in performance upholstery fabrics. It has a global reach supplying the best in performance fabrics to the cruise, hospitality, education, healthcare, senior living and custodial sectors. The family owned business has been supplying textiles to the contract market since the 1930’s, gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience in technical performance upholstery fabrics.
Established over 80 years ago, Agua began making and supplying uniforms and gowns for hospitals before the Second World War. Its first waterproof and fire-retardant upholstery collection was launched in 2001 to great acclaim and Agua now has over 600 stunning performance fabrics in 28 collections. The huge choice of colours, textures and design detail across the ranges ensures that there is a fabric to suit any commercial décor.
Agua is constantly evolving to encompass the latest technology and developments to create trend-led designs of the highest quality. In addition to being fire retardant to Crib 5, all the collections are waterproof, anti-microbial and supplied with a strain resistant finish. These highly technical properties ensure that the furniture looks and feels beautiful in even the most challenging environments.
Agua only sources its base fabrics from developed economies that have a substantial degree of regulatory oversight. Finishing and final processing is carried out in UK mills ensuring compliance with the highest environmental and quality standards. Its soft fabric processing machinery was replaced in 2018 and is state of the art, minimizing and managing waste, using fewer processes, while reducing power consumption through greater operational efficiency and reuse of steam.
