Gala Collection expands green label with more benefits
Nov '10
Brentano expands their environmentally-friendly fabric offerings with additions to their Brentano Green Label, bringing its selections up to nearly 40 diverse textiles. Like all Brentano's polyurethane-based faux leathers, the new patterns offer a greener, more eco-friendly alternative to toxic, dioxin releasing vinyl (PVC) and the chemical laden production of leather.

Additionally, Jetset and Paparazzi are the first Brentano polyurethanes to use a post consumer recycled polyester substrate, while the latter uses an embroidery yarn dyed in compliance with REACH standards.

The stylish Jetset and Paparazzi are available in 12 coordinating, chic colors. The classy iguana-skin pattern of Jetset provides a subtle texture ideal for upholstery and panel applications, while Paparazzi is embroidered with a geometric pattern of interlocking rings. The sculptural effect makes Paparazzi perfect for upholstered headboards, panels, or accent pieces. Both faux leathers are part of the growing Brentano Green Label.

Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband and 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 to meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty.
