Why choose Natural Organic Curtain Fabric?
What better way to furnish your home than with luxurious, top quality fabrics that are non-toxic, ethical and sustainable? With organic curtains, cushions and soft furnishings you can relax at home knowing that your family's health is not at risk from chemical fumes.
Beyond Organic: OEcotextiles select only high quality, natural fibres that have been grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. But since growing even organically certified cotton, one of nature's thirstiest plants, can contribute to the desertification of the world, they emphasise the use of natural fibres such as hemp, bambo, flax (linen) and abaca. All OEcotextiles natural fibres are grown responsibly, for instance, all bamboo comes from areas that do not affect panda habitat.
The Hidden Dangers: Processing textiles is one of the most chemically intensive activities on earth and the top industrial polluter of clean water. It takes about 500 gallons of water to produce enough fabric to cover just one sofa. The fabric on that sofa contains chemical residues that may trigger allergic reactions, asthma, or worse. .
- OEcotextiles fabrics are safe Of the 2000 chemicals used in textile manufacturing OEcotextiles uses NONE of those which are known (or suspected) to harm humans or the environment. There are no residues in the fabrics which can be breathed in or absorbed through the skin.
- OEcotextiles are sustainable The mills treat their waste water so that chemicals used during the processing are not returned to our ecosystem. The most benign environmental practices are chosen at each step or processing
