KOHRO: luxury fabrics made in Italy
Versace, Gucci, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana: Italy is home to several luxury brands, which require luxury fabrics for their products. Not just fashion brands: Italy is famous for its interior design studios and shipyards, like Cantieri Riva (now Cantieri Ferretti) in Sarnico. Kohro, an Italian company specialized in luxury fabrics, offers high-quality fabrics using the finest raw materials and combines the Italian manufacturing know-how with a constant search for innovation and appeal.
Part of the larger Martinelli Ginetto Group – a 70-year-old company operating in the North Italian textile market – Kohro offers elegant and never ordinary solutions for interior decorating projects with over 26,000 drawings you can choose from. Deeply rooted in the Italian textile tradition, Kohro has become, however, an important competitor in Russia, Switzerland, China, Thailand and in luxury strongholds such as London and Montecarlo, exporting the Italian style abroad.
PRODUCTS: REFINEMENT AND ORIGINALITY
KOHRO is famous for its luxury fabrics, which are suitable for furniture, home linens, textile wall coverings and accessories. The company uses only high-quality raw materials, such as European linen, silk, Egyptian cotton, wool, and cashmere.
Thanks to its technologically-advanced machinery, every fabric is available in a big format, 260-320 cm in width, in order to optimize fabric consumes and to save time during production. Every fabric is available in solid colors and jacquard, finely embroidered or skillfully finished and the essential characteristics are presented within each product sheet: design style, fabric type, care instructions and advice about the usage.
All fabrics are eco-friendly and non-toxic and comply with the European Union regulation REACH. Their weaving and finishing are strictly made in Italy.
KOHRO fabrics are particularly indicated for your wallcoverings and stand out for class and originality. Decorative jacquard or digitally printed patterns, micropatterns and allover designs, embossed previously on paper, can be chosen to meet your expectations so that you can create the luxury fabric you have always wanted. What makes these coverings unique is how easy-to-install they are. The traditional gluing process is eliminated and the 3m-wide fabric is applied just by tension. Here you can see how they are installed. Visit the section about wallcoverings to get inspired by the different designs and patterns. You will not be disappointed!
KOHRO provides the possibility of customizing its products and bespoke items. Using its high-quality fabrics, it is possible to create bed sheets, pillowcases, duvet covers, bedspreads, blankets, tablecloths, bathrobes and bath sets: everything you need for your bathroom and house.
Accessories and other items
Not only wall coverings and bed linen. KOHRO offers accessories to complete your furniture and not. These include classic or modern trimmings and tie-backs for curtains, upholstery, bedspreads, mattress covers, and decorative cushions.
Furthermore, KOHRO is the leading company for the production of high-quality wool yarn for carpets and rugs, but also for the production of chenille yarn for upholstery.
Every year KOHRO develops new collections and designs in order to offer state-of-the-art and appealing products. All fabric wallcoverings are, however, characterized by their big dimensions: all in double width, they can recreate a wide range of immersive vistas up to 40 meters in length. The collection is completed by precious jacquard or printed micropatterns. As mentioned earlier, KOHRO wallcoverings are easy to install: not through gluing, just by tension.
The current collection comprises nine different themes, ranging from Irish-themed wallcoverings to the oriental-inspired ones, all available in different colours. The newest 2019 capsule collection, Wild Splendours, is, for example, inspired by archaic and organic motifs, such as Durham’s columns, arabesques of the Book of Kells, tattoos and jewelry pieces from the High Middle and Barbarian ages. In addition to that, KOHRO has, also, developed the Cosmopolitan Collection for your bedroom, living room and dining area and the Sand Society Collection for your beds, bedside tables, chests, ottomans, sofas, and armchairs.

Tradition meets innovation!
