But for Brentano Design Director Iris Wang, it’s also a natural fit for textiles because at its core, rhythm speaks to a language of pattern. “As long as there is pattern, there is rhythm,” Wang says.
With their fall 2013 Rhythm collection, Brentano offers colorful, eco-friendly textiles in playful patterns. The swinging, semi-botanical pattern Bing will keep the beat in interiors that require fabrics that are both fun and functional, and 54” Dizzy delivers smooth lines in the form of an eco-friendly, performance-minded upholstery.
Both use Agion polyester, which is formulated with silver and copper ions to provide antibacterial properties in a more environmentally-friendly manner than other methods. Composed of 100% post-consumer recycled polyester, the fabrics are also finished with GreenShield and certified Cradle to Cradle silver.
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.
Brentano's fabrics stem from Wang's philosophy of balancing beauty + performance. Their growing collection of eco-fabrics expands this ideology by demanding textiles meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty.
