Sustainable Fabrics

In an effort to learn more about eco-friendly fabrics I thought I should share what Robert Kaufman, our manufacturer for the wonderful Logan fabric in the line, has to say about the process.

organic, sustainable and eco-friendly fabrics

At Robert Kaufman, we are pleased to present greenSTYLE, fabric options created from environmentally-friendly materials and fabrication methods. These textiles are organic, sustainable and low-impact dyed, leaving less (or no) harmful waste and making the most sustainable and natural use of the Earth's precious resources. Ingenuity and innovation are the hallmark of eco-friendly yarns and fabrics, and often unearth exciting new production methods and repurposing of some unlikely sources. Robert Kaufman is proud to support innovative thinking and enjoys exploring new product areas like this.
Our Commitment to the FutureThis is only the beginning of Robert Kaufman’s dedication to global responsibility. The greenSTYLE line is growing, as we add exciting and innovative NEW eco-friendly content and explore more environmentally-friendly methods of production. We're also taking steps in our internal operations to reduce paper waste, recycle and conserve energy. It's a big undertaking, but if we all do our parts, we can do great things for saving Earth.

Our cotton/bamboo solid range, Panda, has enjoyed such popularity, and we've received so many requests for a print on this fabrication, that we're proud to introduce Panda Prints. This 60% cotton and 40% bamboo poplin makes a statement in more ways than one.
