Colour is a crucial element of cruise ship interiors design; a tool to lift your guests’ mood, create a calming atmosphere, elevate a design to be cutting-edge or invest a room with a classic, luxe feel. As cruise lines are careful to deliver their brand through every aspect of the guest experience, finding the perfect colourway is more important than ever.

ROHI knows their customer’s need to find the best fit for their brand: their extensive colour palette offers countless possibilities for monochrome fabrics, as well as exciting colour combinations for multi-colour effects. Besides, a special manufacturing process allows ROHI to create custom colours tailored to individual customer tastes and based on Pantone, RAL, and more.

Commenting on their process, ROHI says, “When designing colouring for your cruise ships and vessels, we examine the company philosophy and the architectural characteristics of the object in question. We take CI specifications, culture, target group and design guidelines into account, and then use our know-how, creativity, and digital Jacquard loom to make the customized colours reality.

For the cruise sector we see a clear and longlasting trend to classical maritime colours: all shades of blue, turquoise, white – the colours of the sea so to say. But also warm sandy and natural colours are very much asked to convey a holiday feeling. Warm reddish and golden tones are often used in the cultural facilities of the ships – for a sophisticated and festive atmosphere. Whatever the colour concept may be – we focus on our client’s needs, we listen and work together with the client to find the perfect textile solution for each individual customer.

All ROHI fabrics embody top quality, are ‘Made in Germany’ and are certified according to IMO A.652(16).  What makes ROHI fabrics so special is the exclusive use of top quality wools, and finishing based on years of experience. They have unique product properties and are ideal for maritime use thanks to their durability, breathability, acoustics and resistance to soiling.”
