Camille Graeser Fabric Category Description:

Although most often associated with painting, Camille Graeser was a versatile artist that worked in a variety of fields, including interior design, product design and graphic arts. He was one of an increasing number of prominent artists who worked to create functional designs for the home and for industrial facilities.

Graeser enjoyed a number of successes throughout the 1920s. Particular among these was a commission to design the interior of a model home in the Weisenhoff village, part of the Association of German factories near Stuttgart. It was here that Graeser demonstrated his nascent inclination toward a geometric constructivist aesthetic.

By his mid-40s, Camille Graeser had turned his attention almost exclusively to painting. Nevertheless, Graeser left us some remarkable textile designs in the form of the Rhombus fabrics. Dating from 1944, the design consists of rhomboid shapes over a colorful background.

Graeser's Rhombus fabric has so many possibilities... draperies, wall hangings, seat cushions, pillows, lampshades, slipcovers and table covers are just a few of the items that can be made from this designer fabric.

Regular Maintenance for Your Camille Graeser Fabric (The following recommendations are from the Maharam web site)

For regular maintenance use the proper attachment to avoid pilling. Professionally clean as needed.

Treating Stains

  • Clean with mild, pure, water-free dry cleaning solvents only.

  • Soak up any excess moisture immediately with a clean, soft, white cloth.

  • For oil and water-based stains: Dampen a clean, soft, white cloth with water-free dry cleaning solvent – do not over saturate. Gentlyblot the stain. Work from the edge of the stain toward the center, rotating the cloth once an area becomes soiled. Repeat the process until the stain is removed and no longer transfers to the cloth.

  • For insoluble stains (e.g. chewing gum, candle wax, etc.): Use a plastic bag filled with ice to rub the stain until the substance becomes brittle. Use a clean, dull, flat knife to gently remove the substance.

  • Allow the textile to dry thoroughly. Vacuum before using.

General Recommendations

  • Treat stains promptly; the longer a stain remains on the textile, the more difficult it will be to remove.

  • Always pre-test any cleaning method on an inconspicuous area.

  • Several light applications of a cleaning agent are less harmful than a single concentrated application; repeat stain treatment several times if necessary.

  • Never use heat to clean textiles; heat can set stains.

  • A professional furniture cleaning service is recommended.
