Aurifil Color Builders 2022 | Flora


Aurifil's hugely popular range, the Color Builders, are back for another year, and we are delighted to be able to introduce them to you here at Rhinetex. The Color Builders are a perfect product for all sorts of fabric shops. If, for example, you want to add Aurifil as a new brand to your shop or if you want to introduce this thread to your customers. The Color Builders come in 12 different sets, so as a subscription it is, of course, also very suitable.

Besides fabrics and notions, we at Rhinetex also love colours and beautiful flowers and plants, and therefore we are in love with this new Aurifil collection.

Aurifil Color Builders 2022 • Flora

Flora is a celebration of Aurifil's variegated yarn. Aurifil produces 36 variegated yarn colours, yarns that contain several colours or several shades of one colour. Twenty-four of these shades are represented in the 2022 range. Each set contains 3 large 50w spools - 2 variegated and 1 complementary plain.

We love Aurifil Color Builders because it combines three of our favourite things: quality thread, beautiful quilts, and the opportunity to grow the community. If you participate in the Aurifil Color Builders programme as a shop, you will have access to a beautiful extra Aurifil patterns. But, more importantly, you can grow the community around your shop by letting creatives work on the same projects and learn new techniques. This will easily bind your customers to your shop.


Flora • All About the 2022 Mini Collections

This year, Aurifil has gathered its colour inspiration from 12 breathtaking rainforest plants, from the Amazon Water Lily and Bird of Paradise to the Jade Vine and Spider Lily. These plants represent the most endangered tropical forests on earth, which are largely suffering from deforestation and climate change.

For the year 2022, Aurifil has partnered with (and is donating to) the Rainforest Trust, an organisation dedicated to the long-term protection of these forests.

Rainforest Trust buys and protects the most threatened tropical forests, and rescues endangered wildlife through partnerships and community involvement. Every action we take now to protect the rainforests will have a lasting effect on the future by preserving our planet's critical ecosystems.
