Flying with Virgin Atlantic's new modernised fleet
Virgin Atlantic have released their new A330neo fleet – a modernised approach to air travel. The new aircraft offers the highest standard of fuel efficiency and noise reduction, in addition to a refreshed, comfortable cabin space.
Replin by Hainsworth are thrilled to announce that the new Upper Class cabin features a pioneering seat using our own Eclipse vertical surface fabric. In collaboration with cabin concept developers FactoryDesign and Virgin Design, Replin created two custom Eclipse textiles for use in the shrouds and insert panels that surround the reclining seat.
Our Eclipse fabrics are renowned for their luxurious finish and high technical performance. Combining the finest wool with man-made flame retardant fibres, Eclipse fabrics surpass industry safety standards without sacrificing appearance and a comfortable feel.
The custom textiles were designed paying close attention to the requirements of the Virgin Atlantic brand. The resulting designs – two textured fabrics in scarlet and peach – help to create a warm and comfortable environment for the aviation passenger, while evoking the retro vintage spirit of the airline.
Replin by Hainsworth are proud that our fabrics are appearing in such a modernised aircraft from a world-renowned brand.
