Crypton Waterproof Fabric Intelligence

Crypton waterproof fabric has revolutionised the Hospitality, Healthcare and Aged Care industries around the world. In fact, we were their first export customer in 1993 and the first to bring this revolutionary waterproof fabric to designers and architects in Australasia. Designers weren’t restricted to using vinyl in aged care projects any more! Instead they had the creative freedom to add pattern which was functional as well as decorative.

Crypton’s patented fabric and moisture barrier technology offers superior performance over any other fabric in its class. A full waterproof barrier is applied to the back of the fabric and a water repellant finish to the face of the fabric. Furthermore, there is exceptional protection from stains, odours, moisture and mildew whilst also preserving the comfort of a breathable textile!

Initially there were just print-based fabrics with two different substrates. Now there are beautiful jacquard designs as well as amazing plains including velvets and textures.

You’ll find our Crypton products through the following ways:

  1. Navigate to waterproof fabrics in patterned seats, plain seats and outdoor seats.
  2. Use the waterproof fabrics filter in the product sidebar of all furnishing textile products.
  3. Enter ‘Crypton’ into our search bar.


Crypton technology is third-party GREENGUARD Gold certified. This certification applies to all the Crypton products that we carry. Read the full eco statement here.

Crypton Care

Whilst our fabrics are designed to be easily cleaned, they are not self-cleaning and require a regular maintenance regime to extend the life of the fit-out. Find out more about Crypton Care Purple, Crypton Care Gold and Crypton Disinfectant & Deodoriser.
