TARRAGONA, Spain — Graham Round joined Tuvatextil as export manager in early 2019, after a 28-year career at Rafael Catala in a similar post.

Tuvatextil, with an office and showroom in Barcelona and a mill in Tarragona, produces indoor/outdoor fabrics under the brand names Agora (solution-dyed acrylic) and Acrisol (a Dralon-branded acrylic, which is celebrating 22 years under the sun).

Round is one of three Tuvatextil export managers. He covers the U.K., Central Europe, and the Persian Gulf.

His colleagues are Belen Comas (formerly at Rioma) and Sergio Moreno. All report to Gonzalo Sabates, CEO and founder, who is the team leader. “We just form a great team and the company is growing steadily each year,” Round says.

“We will be introducing two new Acrylic Dralon collections at Heimtextil, which will include three prints and four stripes, and two design coordinates called Origins and Bliss,” Round says.

“In Agora solution-dyed acrylic, we will be presenting new colors in our Liso (plains) collection and a few more jacquard designs that we are working on,” he says. “The fabrics are all water/stain repellent and Agora is bleach friendly with a five-year guarantee against fading. We are a vertical mill and can do FR treatments and waterproof PU backing to make the fabric 100% waterproof.”

Round adds that “prices are ex-factory, but we do CIF for certain quantities which vary from country to country.”

The company exhibits at Heimtextil, Milan Salone, Spoga, Decosit, and Madrid Home Textiles Premium.

“We keep all our qualities in stock by the piece and cut length,” Round says. “We also develop special collections with clients who are mostly furniture manufacturers. The wholesalers who sell our fabrics will have various price points depending on the type of client they sell to.”
