A French SME, specialized in innovative and technical product development made with natural fibers, has developed an innovative 100% natural non-woven material for interior wall covering. It is looking for agents or distributors to collaborate with.
The French company is an engineering and design office, developing innovative and technical products based on natural fibers for various sectors. Resulting from its research and development work, the SME proposes an innovative 100% natural nonwoven material for interior wall covering. This fabric is made of 65% flax and 35% viscose. The product has a soft and thermal finishing. It respects all the European requirements regarding health, security and protection of the environment. The product can be proposed as raw material in large width, but also as a ready-to-sell product under the form of small rolls (like wallpaper rolls). The company is looking for trade intermediary partners – agents and distributors – to develop its activity abroad. It can be for example companies active in the sector of interior decoration articles or construction industry. As the French company is an engineering office, specific development can be made to fit with the partner requirements.
Innovations and advantages
The nonwoven fabric is 100% natural, non-allergic, and user-friendly (easy-to-apply, could be painted, can be easily removed). It provides a thermal insulation finishing to surfaces covered with it. It shows an optimal wear resistance allowing it to be used in home interior as well as professional environments. The fabric is respecting fire classification of construction products and building elements (when applied on a wall). Concerning professionals from construction industry, this wall covering is very interesting because it requires little preparation and little time to be applied. It could be covered/painted with acrylic paint. These aspects show advantages on construction site. Price is also very competitive for a 100% natural wall covering.

Partner sought can be for example companies active in the sector of interior decoration articles - such as manufacturer or distributors of wallpapers, tapestry or home interior covering - or construction industry. The business intermediary should have good knowledge of the sectors (construction and home interior decoration), strong local presence, experience in distribution of similar and/or complementary products would be a plus. As the French company is an engineering office, specific development can be made to fit with the partner requirements.
