Fabulous Fabric: Loop
It is made from Tyvek, a water proof material that is polyethylene based. It can be cut, sewn, wrinkled, folded, pierced, hung or hemmed like a fabric. I’m also convinced that this is another alternative to vinyl, which is really quite awesome.
Another fantastic property that this fabric comes with is its own envelope for recycling. With each order of loop, it is accompanied with a prepaid envelope for shipping your scraps or your project (when it is no longer wanted or needed) back to MIO for recycling! In wonky terms it is a “free product take back system.”
Loop currently comes in three different color combinations; Green-Grey, Orange-Red and Pink-Purple, and they are all reversible with the pattern on one side and the solid on the other. It is 45″ wide and can be sold in as many yards from the spool as you would like for $13 per yard.
MIO also has a variety of projects for free download on how to use Loop. Make a pillow, poncho, a kite, or even cover your books. The possibilities are endless.
I’d love to see them come out with more designs and a wider range of colors. What would you use Loop for? Please tell us in the comments.
