I have compiled a list of interior decorating fabric companies that have put out lines of fabrics for interiors that are eco or more environmentally responsible of sorts. Some of the companies focus on recycled polyester and tend to be more suitable and practical for contract applications. In term of actual health benefits, I’m hardpressed to classify these as having those attributes. However, they reuse or recycle existing manmade fibers and keep them from the landfill, so I’ve included them. The ones that use natural fibers such as cotton or wool tha are not sprayed with pesticides and are processed so has to be less toxic to people and, naturally, the environment are also included and I have tended to put these int0 the category of residential applications because they do not all meet the FR and durability requirements for contract use.  For the most part, I put pigment printed fabrics into residential non-upholstery purpose since pigments just do not hold up as well as other dyestuffs and can fade and crock more easily than others. I am not saying that one cannot use them on upholstery, but great care must be taken to keep the pieces away from regular use and away from light and fading sources such as gas.

I am sure there are so many companies that are bringing out healthier and more environmentally responsible fabric lines about which I do not know. I would love for anyone to share with me any companies that are doing so, so that I can research them and add to the growing list!
