Today more and more of us are returning to our natural roots, myself included. I have adapted a natural lifestyle in the past several years and not only seek natural ingredients in my food but everywhere else as well – and of course, natural fiber decorator fabric is right up my alley!
Natural fibers were the only kind of fibers used long ago when cloth was made and used for clothing and linens.
Natural fibers make clothing and decorator fabrics breathable and soft. They feel good and look good. There are no chemical toxins used in the construction or dying of the fabrics, making them safe and worry free. An added bonus is their biodegradable-ness.
What exactly is a natural fiber? An elongated substance made by a plant or an animal that can be spun into filament, thread or rope, and can be woven, knitted, or even matted into a sheet like felt. Plant parts such as seeds, leaves, skins, stalks and husks make fibers and fabrics of cotton, flax, linen, hemp, sisal, coir, jute, ramie, abaca, and coconut. Animal hair, feathers, or secretions produce wool, silk, mohair, cashmere, camel hair, angora, and alpaca wool.
Natural fibers make fabric for clothing and decorative items in your home more breathable, temperature regulatory, durable, absorbent, static free, pill free and are naturally antimicrobial.
