Cool Idea: Tyvek Transitions to the Home Design World

While you may use Tyvek to cover your car or construct your house, I doubt that you use any for home decorating. That might be about to change, though. Philadelphia design firm MIO has transformed this most utilitarian of fabrics into pretty designs suitable for use as decorative home textiles. The company's first Tyvek fabric design is called "Loop," and is printed with a pattern on one side and a solid color on the other.

MIO describes the product thusly:

Loop By the Yard is a reversible textile-like material for all DIY projects. Each order ships with a prepaid envelope for shipping scraps or the actual project (when no longer wanted or needed) back to MIO for recycling. Designed as a free product take-back system, Loop is made from Tyvek, a spun bonded high-density polyethylene non-woven. This material has been actively collected and recycled for decades and now MIO will be employing this existing recycling infrastructure to complete and test a closed recycling loop. Each yard of Loop can be cut, sewn, wrinkled, folded, pierced, hung or hemmed like a textile. It is durable, breathable and waterproof, making it ideal for a variety of do-it-yourself indoor and outdoor projects.

Would you consider using Tyvek in your home? I love the design, as well as the eco aspects of the material, and just might have to experiment with it.
