ECO DECORATING: Mod Green Pod Wallpaper

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.
