Pallas® Textiles introduces the Valetudo Collection. The privacy curtain collection is inspired by the idea that a healthy lifestyle is a balance of mind, body and environment.

Created by healthcare designers for healthcare projects, Valetudo is part of a family of products that includes the Vivendi flooring collection by Mannington Commercial. Supported by qualitative and quantitative research, the complementary product line focuses on trends in the market.

“Valetudo brings together colors, textures and patterns that emanate luxury and envelop you in a peaceful environment,” said David White, vice president and general manager, Pallas Textiles.

Taking cues from nature, the patterns in Valetudo—which is Latin for health and wellness—seek to lend themselves as beautiful accents to create a setting that is both inspiring and serene. Valetudo is visually appealing both inside and outside the patient zone, its layering of pattern and color creating depth and visual texture, while Trevira FR polyester provides superior durability and cleanability.

The collection comes in three patterns:

Arbor: A sapling budding in the spring evokes the feelings of new life, optimism and hope. This super graphic pattern is meant to be reminiscent of a familiar tree seen outside one’s window.

Flora: Representing a sea of dandelions gently rising to new heights, the ascent of these ephemeral forms is meant to inspire us in our own search for health and happiness.

Stratum: Inspired by the beautifully complex layers of our earth, Stratum builds a solid foundation atop many smaller elements. This pattern grounds us and is meant to remind us of our own strength and convictions.
