Brentano expands range of eco-friendly fabrics

Nov '12
Since their fall 2008 Elements collection, Brentano has continuously added new eco-friendly fabrics that push the boundary of green design. By utilizing a range of environmentally-conscious materials, including bamboo, eco-wool, recycled content, organic cotton, and alternatives to leather and vinyl, Brentano offers a vast selection of eco-friendly fabrics.

Beyond innovative fiber content and construction, Brentano believes in offering traditional patterns as well as unconventional ones.

With the Gallery collection, Brentano adds new selections to the Brentano Green label that can be used in traditional or contemporary spaces. The subdued, striped texture of 100% post-consumer recycled polyester Mythos has a GreenShield finish and exceeds 75,000 double rubs, making it a practical choice for offices, hotels, and healthcare interiors.

Faux leather Perspective is embroidered with a visually compelling pattern inspired by M.C. Escher that is ideal for bench backs, lounge chairs, and headboards in hospitality environments seeking visual interest. The polyurethane base exceeds 100,000 double rubs, while the embroidery yarn passes 30,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Both Mythos and Perspective are also suitable for high-traffic, residential areas.

Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house.
