Xorel Knit won the Interior Design, Best of Year Award for Healthcare Fabric this December 2019.

Xorel Knit is a breakthrough material that leverages the exceptional performance and beauty of Xorel with the application versatility of a knitted textile. Specifically engineered to upholster, it has the flexibility to hug the dramatic shapes of modern furniture. The remarkable combination of functionality and sustainability makes Xorel Knit a textile like no other.


To create Xorel Knit, the Carnegie Creative team became completely immersed in building a one-of-a-kind knitting machine that would produce a textile unlike any other in the brand’s 38-year history. This textile is designed first and foremost for upholstery use: with the ability to wrap and hug extremely complex curves.

A New Material

With visual depth, dimension and a low lustre, Xorel Knit has an ambiance all on its own. The hand is crisp which speaks to its strength while the inherent flexibility provides the stretch and recovery requirements that many modern furniture pieces demand.
