The environmental concerns of the textile industry were rewarded. The American company "Ecotextils", founded about five years ago was included in the Top 10 of the companies that develop "green" products.


The award was given by the editors of the Environmental Building News and GreenSpec® Magazine, which in this way recognizes the brand's environmental concerns in the treatment of fabrics, refusing the use of chemical additives in its production.

It is for this reason that "Ecotextils" prides itself on producing decorative, elegant, attractive and harmless fabrics for the environment.

This award-winning collection presents fabrics made from bamboo, hemp, linen, silk, among others.

In total there are 17 fabrics of multiple colors, with the guarantee that all were produced with total respect for the environment.

Two sisters, Patty and Leigh Anne, founded the company "Ecotextils" in 2003, when, in the search of the remodeling of the sofa of the room, they were confronted with the high level of production inherent to the fabric industry.

From there they traced a path of search for harmless fabrics for the environment, without losing the sophisticated and surprising design that characterizes them.

After five years, and the response was the attribution of the award to the company, the company recognizes that it continues to see in its philosophy of production an opportunity to educate the public about the impact of tissue manufacturing on individual and planet health .

The brand believes that the production of "green fabrics" is the central theme of this industry and for that reason, it dominates all the concerns of the industry's stakeholders, be they creators, manufacturers or customers.
