How can fashionable interiors be sustainable? Sustainable fashion starts with fabric so Perrott’s Home Living in Clonakilty strives to answer this question in part with its new Clarke & Clarke’s Eco Fabrics collection that uses 100 per cent recycled polyester to make a range of multi-tonal woven yarns in textured patterns of beautiful soft shades.
Single-use plastics are wreaking havoc on our environment so many brands have worked out ways to give landfill-bound plastic bags, bottles and textiles a second life. The process is rather simple. First, the bottles are broken down into small flakes, then those flakes are melted into tiny pellets and then they are melted again, filtered and spun into threads to make textiles.
Recycled polyester is extremely versatile and can take the form of many different feels and functions. When compared to virgin polyester, recycled polyester offers the same properties but with significant environmental gains. It is durable, lightweight, crease-resistant, colourfast, quick-drying, stain resistant, eco-friendly and economical.
The Eco Fabrics collection is suitable for made-to-measure curtains, roman blinds, accessories and upholstery, Eco speaks to both the style- and environmentally- conscious, with designs ranging from classic herringbone patterns to subtle geometrics that have a warm organic feel.
Perrott’s also carries a large range of biodegradable cotton fabrics.
