D’Decor Home Fabrics founded in 1999 is the largest maker of woven upholstery and curtain fabrics in the world. It has also delivered several prominent firsts in Indian textile manufacturing such as creating water-repellent and flame-retardant fabrics as well as the country’s first robotic warehouse.

Another recent innovation to provide their customers with healthy and safe living, D’Decor Home Fabrics in partnership with Swiss textile innovator HeiQ developed a new segment of Antiviral and Air Purifying furnishing fabrics.

The D’Decor antiviral and air purifying range of products live up to the philosophy of safe and beautiful home spaces. Textiles provide a large hosting surface for bacteria and viruses that allow them to remain active from days to months, in the current pandemic time, people look for hygienic home solutions more than ever. D’Decor Home Fabrics wanted to find a solution to this problem and render their textiles antiviral and antibacterial.

This product range was launched as ViroGuard by D’décor and AeroFresh by D’décor

ViroGuard by D’Decor, powered by HeiQViroblock is an antiviral range of home textile products. Fabrics treated with HeiQViroblock have been previously tested effectively against coronavirus, influenza, avian flu, swine flu and respiratory syncytial virus and achieves 99.99% reduction of the virus. ViroGuard aims to destroy viruses and bacteria within a short time and last long on the fabric. D’Decor Home Fabrics will offer upholstery fabrics, curtain fabrics and bedding with this technology.

AeroFresh by D’Decor, powered by HeiQ Fresh, is an air purifying function that uses UV light to improve indoor air quality. Indoor air hygiene has been a major growing concern with increasing risk of human health hazard, and indoor air contains volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are released from household furnishing, carpets, glues, cleaning sprays, aerosols, flooring, etc. D’Decor Home Fabrics has adopted HeiQ Fresh, HeiQ’s breakthrough air purifying textile technology on their custom-made curtains to help users improve indoor air quality. It works by turning any textile surface into an air purifying surface by immobilizing the VOC molecules in the air and then decomposing them using light. It works quickly (within 24 hours) and lasts up to 20 washes.

Based in Mumbai, India, D’Decor Home Fabrics owns five state-of-the-art production plants with cutting edge equipment and the country’s first robotic warehouse. The award-winning company is led by a core team of visionaries, innovators and leaders to create a strong company that has been in business for over two decades.
