Traditional wall coverings often use PVC, a harmful and toxic material that has been known to leech into the air, so buying toxin-free textiles is an important health consideration that can’t be ignored. Mod Green Pod was founded by Lisa and Nancy Mims as a means to offer safer —and more fashionable— alternatives to conventional textile prints. Their products not just graphically gorgeous, but green in their materiality, completely free of vinyl, and use water-based inks on 100% certified organic cotton-based fabric.
We’ve had our eye on Austin-based company Mod Green Pod Wallpaper since we saw them a few years back at HauteGREEN. They are a member of the Organic Trade Association (OTA), which means they follow strict fiber principles and support global organic textile standards. From a purely aesthetic standpoint, they offer a chic collection of prints, including a new shade of Grand Jubilee, their signature print, coming out in a few weeks.
