Milliken launches eco upholstery fabrics collection

The global textile technology company, Milliken & Company has launched ‘Breathe’, a new collection of eco-elegant performance upholstery fabrics. These fluorine-free performance fabrics have been designed and manufactured by using natural or recycled fibres made from plastic bottles and plant-based water repellent. ‘Breathe’ fabrics are sustainable in nature.

‘Breathe’ has been extensively tested by certified third parties and meet or exceed industry standards including flammability, water repellency, soil release, spot cleaning, colorfastness, abrasion resistance and pilling. ‘Breathe’ fabrics meet these standards without adding fluorine, formaldehyde, fire retardants or other chemicals of concern. Unlike common spray-on stain resistance treatments, ‘Breathe’ fabrics are engineered textiles and provide lasting protection. These fabrics are durable, repel everyday stains and clean easily without compromising the fabric’s look or soft feel.

“Today’s consumers are better informed and more concerned about product content than ever before – who makes it, what it is made of and how it is made,” said David Smith, vice president, Engineered Performance Products, Milliken & Company. “Every aspect of this product was designed to address this concern. Consumers can breathe easy knowing their beautiful furniture is protected from stains and wear in a much more sustainable way.” 

The company has created ‘Breathe’ fabrics with discerning consumers in mind to address the growing need for more environmentally-friendly, effective and high-quality performance home upholstery fabrics. ‘Breathe’ has also bagged Greenguard Gold certification, which gives assurance that products designed for use in indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, contributing to the creation of healthier interiors.
