Treehugger’s Eco Fabric Roundup
We love to feature fabulous eco friendly fabrics here on Crafting A Green World. We often focus on hand printed fabrics by indie designers, but recently Treehugger reminded us large fabric manufacturers are going green too, and in some pretty high tech ways.
Treehugger recently featured 11 Eco Upholstery Textiles Revolutionizing The Global Market. The list includes one of our favorites, Mod Green Pod, but also has a bunch of new sources we had not previously come across.
My new favorite has to be the gorgeous textiles from Q Collection, the same company behind the Q Collection Junior line of sustainable baby furniture. Their gorgeous line of residential fabrics do not have any toxic finishes and are made from 100 percent biodegradable natural fibers including bamboo, hemp, linen, organic cotton, , abaca and wool.
