Eat this.
Don’t eat this.
Eat this, but not too much of it.

And as we get older, we change. Our nutritional needs change, our metabolism changes, our physical bodies - you guessed it - change! This further complicates life. Few of us say they can eat and do the same things as when they were teenagers.
So we created this guide full of research-backed information and easy-to-digest (pun totally intended) summary bullet points to help you understand your body’s needs as you get older. This guide isn’t about perfect eating, living off a diet of kale smoothies or scrutinising every morsel consumed - this guide is to empower you with knowledge - so you can live your life to the fullest.
We start with a basic breakdown of the 3 macronutrients and follow on through each decade of your life - so you can enjoy and flourish during each one.
We open a conversation between two experts in their field - who provides us insight into how we can maximise our health at every age.
And, we provide pro tips on what types of exercise and movement will serve you best at your particular age and stage.
Growing older is inevitable but, ageing can be slowed and enjoyed with a few tricks and tips to keep you feeling Pro You. It’s never too late to start looking after you, your mind and your body.
Happy thriving.

What Are the Basic Styles of Fabric for Curtains & Upholstery?

Each fabric style outlined below has its own unique characteristics and are produced using different techniques. Some of these fabric types will be well known to you like plain and printed fabrics, while others less so.

You may be wondering why cotton and linen for example are not included here – this is because they are a type of composition that falls within one of these categories below.
Here we give you a high-level overview of the styles of fabrics available to you for your home interior or commercial interior project.

PLAIN: Plain fabrics are characterised by simple weaves and textures not showing any complex design.
Simple weaves are for instance – hopsacks, twills, herringbones and satins. Common fabric compositions used for plain fabrics include natural fibres (cotton, linen) as well as synthetic fibres (polyester, acrylic, etc.)

Plain interior fabrics take on a simple and paired back aesthetic. Ideal for a minimalist décor, you can complement plain fabrics with more textured and tactile textiles for added interest to your home décor.

PRINTED: Printing is the process of applying coloured designs and patterns to a woven textile. One or more colours are applied to the fabric in specific parts only, using thickened dyes to prevent the colour from spreading beyond the limits of the pattern or design. In quality printed fabrics, the colour is bonded with the fibre so as to resist loss of dye from washing and friction (crocking). Printing is an ancient textile manufacturing technique of which there are five print production methods you can use:

Burn Out Printing: A process which uses chemicals, rather than colour, to burn out or dissolve away one fibre in a fabric. The purpose is to achieve a sheer design on a solid or opaque fabric. The chemicals used during production can make this fabric sensitive to ultraviolet degradation when hung in direct sunlight.

Digital Printing: Rapidly becoming a popular and commercially viable printing method due to its flexibility, precision and consistency. With this new printing technique it is now possible to print any design, even with photographic detail, onto fabric. There are no restrictions in the amount of colour that can be used.

Engraved Roller Printing: The printing method used for the majority of fabrics worldwide. The colours are printed directly onto the fabric. There must be one roller for each colour used in the print. The more colours used, the better the print definition and depth of colour. The number of colours used is printed on the left hand selvedge of a fabric along with the brand.
