Designs with an uplifting nature, can promote a feeling of well-being and calm.  Alongside our prints we also have a choice of antimicrobial woven waterproof upholstery qualities and antimicrobial faux leathers/vinyl’s.  Skopos Protect Plus fabrics are antimicrobial and anti-fungal, effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria commonly found in hospital environments.

Hygienic Fabrics for Care Homes

Skopos has been providing fabrics and finished soft furnishings for care home environments since the 1970s.  Care Homes are becoming more like hotels and so the visual gap between the two has almost disappeared. Alongside our prints we also have a choice of woven waterproof upholstery qualities and the ability to produce bespoke designs.  All of our healthcare collections are perfect for Care Home environments, with many equally suited to hotels.  It all depends on the basecloth.
