Bella Tela is committed to having a positive environmental impact and offers a collection of designs using poly chiffon and poly organdie made from 100% RPET.  These fabrics are full of volume, movement and fluidity. Being involved in sustainability is important for Bella Tela and its community of customers. The company is excited to be able to create such luxury, unique and original designs in a safe, sustainable material.

Reflective PVC

Bella Tela’s reflective PVC fabrics create a dream world, enchanting in a spectrum of light reflecting in every direction and creating a new masterpiece every time they move. From flowers to tassels and layered jigsaws, this innovative look is fast becoming a Bella Tela icon with stunning catwalk images appearing as designers indulge.

Luxurious Embroideries

Bella Tela embroideries are purposely indulgent, using high stitch counts for that opulent feel. True works of art may be achieved through multi-colour palettes and unique tactile surfaces. Using state of the art modern machinery, the company explores multi layered textiles through a variety of stitch, bead and cord work.
