It’s been a long time coming, but they’re finally here! Finao has 30 new delicious materials and a new specialty cover to add to the hundred+ tempting textures and luscious leathers we already offer! Not only are there new options, but the way you can use your materials on the ONE and artONE has become simpler too: Anything goes! If you want a leatherette with a leather, or a silk with a leatherette, go ahead! Who follows rules anyway, right? For more on this, please see the Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes blog post.
Due to the high demand, new swatch kits (for those of you who don’t have swatches) and new update kits (for those of you who already have swatches – GO YOU!) are available now for pre-order and swatches are expected to ship by early October.
And because you’re so studious and actually took the time to come here and read this, you not only get a gold star, but you also get an exclusive sneak peek of what’s new and what’s changed!!
The Finao Leather Collection
ACCENTS: Added Harlow & Trevi. Update kit will include a new card with these two materials on it and you’ll move your old materials to the new card.
BASICS: Added 50 Shades & Carrigan. Discontinued Shroom & Dubonnet. Update kit will include a new card with these two new materials on it, spaces for the discontinued materials will be eliminated, and you’ll simply move the remaining materials from the old card to the new card.
FRAGMENTS: Added Chyna. Update kit will include a new card with this material on it and you’ll move your old materials to the new card.
MIXED BAG: Added Corruption leather & Serenity laminate specialty cover. Update kit will include a new card with these two materials on it and you’ll move your old materials to the new card.
PLAYGROUND: This is an entirely new collection of handmade papers strictly for use on Finao playPAL mini duplicate books. playPALS must be ordered with a flush mount ONE or artONE album.
THE COLOURS: This collection name has been discontinued along with four leathers from the original collection – Jester, Lobster, Scotch Pine & Idol Eyes. You will move the remaining leathers from your original Colours card to the new updated Tricycle Alley card.
TRICYCLE ALLEY: Four leathers from this original collection have been discontinued to make room for the 4 materials from the old Colours collection. We’ve discontinued Jelly Bean, Sunshine, Mauvelous & Zonk Blue.
PARAPHERNALIA: This card of fabrics was originally included in the leather kit because it was only available with the flush mount ONE album. Now it is available across all Finao album lines, so we’ve moved it to the Finao Non-Leather Swatch Kit.
ALL THAT JAZZ: No changes have been made to this collection.
URBAN LEGENDS: No changes have been made to this collection.
AND NOW, to take it to the next level, we’re proud to introduce Finao plusONE materials!
These material collections are exclusive to the Finao ONE and artONE flush mount albums and can be used as an accent stripe with any other Finao standard material for no additional cost, OR for those who really want the wow factor with more than a stripe, you may choose to upgrade your material to a plusONE material for an upgrade price. There are two collections that fall under the plusONE upgrade material category:
ZUMANITY: The totally wild collection that was once an optional card is now included in new leather collections and is also provided with the leather update kit. We added 5 NEW MATERIALS – Feather Pillow, Satin Sheets, Glitteratzi, Holy Cow & Icelandia, and discontinued El Tigre.
THE NINES: This is a BRAND NEW COLLECTION of gorgeous leathers that belong to the exclusive plusONE upgrade material category.
The Finao Non-Leather Collection
(All non-leathers can now be used across all Finao album lines)
ADDICTION: This is an entirely new collection of tempting textiles that can be used across all Finao album lines.
MIDTOWN: Another entirely new collection of luxurious linens and silks. Some of you may already have this card, but it will be in the update kit again for those who missed it’s launch earlier this year.
PARAPHERNALIA: This card of high-end fabrics used to be exclusive to Finao ONE and artONE flush mount albums and was only available in the Leather Swatch Kit. It is now available across all Finao album lines and has been moved to the Non-Leather Swatch Kit and will come standard in new swatch kits and will also be included in the Non-Leather Update Kit.
BROCADES: We’ve said goodbye to six of these silks and condensed the original two Brocade cards down to one. We’ve discontinued Chai, Geisha, Karakane, Sandalwood, Sapphire & Shanghi. Update kits will include the new condensed card so you can put aside your old Brocade cards. Discontinued materials will still be available to order as supplies last.
MIDDLE EARTH: We’ve said goodbye to four of these materials and condensed the original two Middle Earth cards down to one. We’ve discontinued Amber Brew, Green Eyed Girl, Pot O’Gold & Blue Moon. Update kits will include the new condensed card so you can put aside your old Middle Earth cards. Discontinued materials will still be available to order as supplies last.
ECLECTIC LOOKS: No changes to this collection.
GARBO: No changes to this collection.
HAPPY COW: No changes to this collection.
HAUTE COLOUR: No changes to this collection.
