I am not ashamed to admit that I subscribe to about a zillion furniture and homewares retailers’ newsletters. Most days, they are devoid of anything I’d want to feature, but this week’s email from Room & Board turned up a few gems. Their new pillow collection appears to include organic fabrics from Mod Green Pod. Room & Board doesn’t specifically identify the fabrics as being organic (just cotton), but I immediately recognized MGP’s Bloom, Atticus and Glimmer fabrics!
I am so happy to see such a large retailer carrying fabrics from a small, green company like Mod Green Pod. I’ve made no secret of my love for their patterns, so this is a welcome sight. And it’s a great solution for people who love the fabrics as much as I do, but don’t trust themselves with a sewing machine (although you CAN work wonders with iron-on hem tape these days!) You will, however, get a lot more for your money if you buy yardage of the fabric, but I just wanted to show you these new, pre-made options.
Why It’s Green:
- Made in the U.S.
- Covered with organic fabrics from Mod Green Pod, which are grown, woven, and printed in the U.S. using non-toxic pigments
