MISSION: Ecotextiles wants to change the way textiles are made by proving that it's possible to produce luxurious, sensuous fabrics in ways that are non-toxic, ethical and sustainable.
Did you know that? It takes about 500 gallons (2000 liters) of water to produce one kilogram of fabric, and the total quantity of chemicals varies from 10% to 100% of the weight of the cloth. So if you used O Ecotextiles throughout your house, you would theoretically prevent the equivalent of an Olympic-size swimming pool of effluent from entering our ecosystem
Ecotextiles fabrics are available at Blawnox Upholstery.
Sofa cushions - polyurethane foam, or latex?
Natural latex is breathable, biodegradeable, healthier (i.e., totally nontoxic, and mold & mildew proof) and lasts longer than polyfoam – some reports say up to 20 times longer.
Made from natural ingredients.
Latex is rubber, not plastic like foam
Latex stretches and responds
Made in USA
