A Lifestyle Thing Blog: Go Green with Rubie Green Textiles

I am over at A Lifestyle Thing today guest posting for my chic friend, Sharon Taylor, of Sharon Taylor Designs. 

 Go check it out.

We are going green while still being pretty…a current hot topic. 

It is hard trying to be aesthetically pleasing and green at the same time. There are a few vendors and fabric manufacturers who put an emphasis on this but, they are still few and far between. Well, that in not the case with Rubie Green. This company is based in the US and founded by the talented Michelle Adams of Lonny fame. She started this boutique fabric house to fill a void in the market that combined good environmental practices with aesthetics and what a bang up job she did. With no further adieu I introduce you to Rubie Green.

“It's a barefoot walk in the sand; it's a lazy afternoon nap, and it's your first sight of the Mediterranean coast. It's life at its simplest, and nature in its wordless beauty. Here at Rubie Green, our mission is to dress your surroundings in fabrics that represent vitality, energy, comfort and style, all while maintaining respect to the environment by using only 100% organic cotton. We believe in classic designs that are familiar to every decade, re-vitalized in an eco-friendly manner. We know that natural does not mean boring, and that interiors make a house a home.”

Our team performed months of research, attended trade shows and participated in conferences to find what we believe is the most eco-friendly printing method available. Our upholstery fabrics are made of 100% certified organic cotton, which is whitened without bleach and printed here in the US. We print with water-based, non-toxic inks that contain no volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), and utilize a printing process that minimizes water consumption. In fact, the factory uses only one gallon of water per day! This was an exciting discovery for our team as water plays such an integral role in most other methods of printing. We also wanted to avoid fabric waste so we decided to print only on demand, using heat and pressure to finish our fabrics instead of chemicals.”

Here is the wonderful range of fabrics available in the collection. I am quite partial to the Jackie and the Mary. Roar!
