Eco-Friendly Upholstery Fabrics

Are your fabrics eco-friendly?

All our fabrics are eco-friendly. We buy certified organic cotton which is combined with eco-friendly flax, to create our unique linen union which we use for all our fabrics, printed and plains. We believe we are the only company who does this. This is because Vanessa is horrified that non organic cotton is the world’s dirtiest crop to grow, because it relies on the heavy use of pesticides which are hazardous to human and animal health. Pesticide use has serious adverse effects on biodiversity and contaminates local water supplies.

Having lived in the Cotswolds for thirty – five years, Vanessa is committed to working with local, specialist and highly skilled craftsmen and women to make all our bespoke products.
