One thing we are especially excited to check out at this weekend’s HauteGREEN show is the new range of fabrics and wallpaper by ModGreenPod. Sisters-in-law Nancy Mims and Lisa Mims design adorable poppy wallpapers and furniture upholsteries that are as eco-friendly as they are easy-on-the-eye. Coincidentally, ModGreenPod’s graphic textiles also grace the seats of the Hi-Five chairs, another HauteGREEN highlight. The fabrics are made from organic cotton and adorned with bright, graphic prints, proving that “eco fabric” does not have to mean “undyed hemp.”

Using the highest-quality organic materials, ModGreenPod produces their fabrics without using any harmful finishing agents and a water-based printing process. They also have a line of vinyl-free wallpapers with the same graphic templates, all made without harmful chemicals and screen-printed right here in the U.S. of A.

Check out ModGreenPod at this weekend’s HauteGREEN festivities!

    I would like to use a sustainable product, perhaps recycled newsprint, in the cushion of a chair; any thoughts?

    These designs seem cool… BUT, a little while ago, inhabitat had a post about the ‘rehance’ fabric printing process as it was applied to T-shirts. These fabrics, in this posting however, claim to be printed using a ‘Silk Screen’ process. Aren’t all Slik Screening processes ‘not green’ even if Plastisol Ink is avoided ? I’d be very interested to know if Silk Screen printing can be done in a green fashion using water based inks… as it could be a serious breakthrough for the whole T-shirt mfg process ? Thanks. (The ModGreenPod website is not very clear about this)
