Merit is an upholstery textile designed by Maharam Design Studio. Predominantly crafted from recycled material, it offers a rich texture and the pronounced colour depth traditionally associated with wool.

Merit has a soft, dimensional surface which is due to the use of voluminous yarns held in place by fine mélange yarns un its construction. Weathered and solid fibre effects are produced using two different types of dye, which delivers eye-catching colour richness.

The post-consumer recycled polyester used in the production of Merit is made from fibres derived from consumer waste, which has been used, disposed of, and diverted from landfills. These are reprocessed, spun into yarn, and then woven and dyed.
