If you're on the hunt for eco chic upholstery fabric, then look no further than online shop Rubie Green. The cool shop was launched by Domino contributor Michelle Adams, who wanted to make classical upholstery prints available in eco-friendly fabrics. All of Rubie Green's upholstery fabrics are made of 100% certified organic cotton, which is whitened without bleach and printed domestically with water-based, non-toxic inks that contain no VOCs. This printing process is actually so water efficient that the factory where it's printed only uses one gallon of water per day!
I love all of the classic prints that Michelle has assembled, and I'm especially a fan of the East Village print. While these fabrics are definitely more expensive than other upholstery fabrics, the quality, care, and eco-consciousness compensates for the price differential.
