Blue and brown are the week’s favorite fabric colors.
Grey, black and beige fabrics were also in the run-up to be the most loved colors this week.
Glossy is still a head-turner for designers.
This week, glossy tiles were the topic of conversation. Three of the four tiles pinned on Material Depot were from the category, making us believe that the trend is here to stay.

Saying yes to plastic: The story of Ricron
Ricron Panels was started by Rahul Chaudhary in 2014 to recycle multilayer plastic into sheets that are a potential substitute for plywood, cement, and corrugated metal sheeting. Ricron Panels have a lot going for them; they’re corrosion-proof, heat resistant, fire retardant, termite-proof, and waterproof. Apart from the recycled sheet, the company gets an increasing demand for roof sheets. Conventional sheets made of tin or plastic last anywhere between six to eight years but sheets made at Ricron last for double the time. Read the complete story of Ricron on the Material Depot blog.
