Mod Green Pod produces 52-53″ wide upholstery weight hand-screenprinted cotton canvas fabric and wallpaper. Co-founders and sisters-in-law Nancy Mims and Lisa Mims run the company from separate cities — Nancy does the designing in Austin (yay!) and Lisa runs the business end in Boston. Friend of True Up Shannon Riffe from Rifferaff and the Make It blog is a former intern, and you can read about some of her adventures there by delving into her archives.
The fabric is sold by the yard in these retail and trade-only locations.
Why organic? Mod Green Pod answers:
We believe in supporting organic cotton agriculture and manufacturing. Grown without toxic chemicals or pesticides, organic cotton is healthier for the earth’s soil and water, animals, farmers, manufacturers, and finally, YOU. Conventional cotton production uses 25% of the world’s insecticides and 10% of the world’s pesticides (including herbicides and defoliants), despite using only 3% of the world’s cropland.
Our 100% organic cotton fabrics are produced without using any harmful finishing agents and our water-based printing process also respects this simplicity and purity.
