Rubie Green is a small company in New York City producing organic upholstery-weight cotton, run by former domino magazine editor Michelle Adams. The fabrics are high-end ($90/yard), but unlike most high-end home dec fabrics which are to-the-trade only, you can buy directly from the website.

Their process:

Our upholstery fabrics are made of 100% certified organic cotton, which is whitened without bleach and printed here in the US. We print with water-based, non-toxic inks that contain no volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), and utilize a printing process that minimizes water consumption. In fact, the factory uses only one gallon of water per day! This was an exciting discovery for our team as water plays such an integral role in most other methods of printing. We also wanted to avoid fabric waste so we decided to print only on demand, using heat and pressure to finish our fabrics instead of chemicals.

    I adore that zebra stripe…somehow I doubt, though, that my hubby would be too thrilled if I recovered our overstuffed chair in zebra print. ;)
