Whether you're looking for fabric or wallpaper ideas that are eco-friendly, it's worth investigating the processes the company uses to check their credentials. The aim has always been to develop a low-impact, in-house production studio, hand-printing fabrics and wallpapers while leaving the smallest possible imprint upon the environment. Its sustainable product starts with the raw ingredient – flax, a hardy plant that, unlike cotton, requires few pesticides, fertilizers and little irrigation to grow.
It is currently installing solar panels, which means the company will be off grid for 10 months of the year, further reducing its impact on the environment. Eco-friendly decoration includes sustainably created products, made from natural materials with no to minimal impact on the environment. Eco-friendly decoration can also, however, include upcycled, recycled or repurposed materials and furnishings that can be reused rather than put into landfill.
