Greek mythology recounts Ceyx and Alcyone as the two love-struck gods who fondly called one another Zeus and Hera. It was a fatal mistake that ignited the wrath of Zeus, the rule of Mount Olympus, who set about for their destruction.

Feeling pity for the doomed couple, the other Olympian gods transformed Ceyx and Alcyone into a pair of mythical Halcyon birds so they could be reunited to live forever by the sea they called home. Today, these Halcyon or Kingfisher birds are fancied by birdwatchers for their bright plumage of burnt orange breasts and turquoise blue feathers; a coloration that has inspired this latest Trevira CS collection by Jim Thompson.

Such eye-catching patterns and quietly elegant textures and plains of the Halcyon Collection make it difficult to believe the fabrics are produced entirely from inherently fire-resistant Trevira CS yarn.

The handle of today’s Trevira CS fabrics feels amazingly similar to fabrics made from natural fibers such as cotton, wool and linen but at the same time being inherently fire-retardant and exhibiting extraordinary durability to abrasion.

The Halcyon Collection offers unrivalled versatility in textiles that makes it the go-to collection for the demands of the most luxurious commercial and residential interior projects.
