Sustainable Fabrics Online

Eco Friendly Fabric Collection

Fabric Direct has a new Autumn/Winter 2020 Collection, with an eco-friendly focus. Our new range is printed in a range of stunning colours, offering versatility and sustainability too. We’ve teamed up with ILIV to promote their new range of sustainable fabrics online; ‘Imprint’, which offers more than 100 designs printed on Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) cotton.

The collection takes inspiration from the Artisan techniques of colour blocking, creating a hand-printed look with depth and texture. With colours inspired by current trends in fashion and textiles, the fabrics have a linen-look texture that’s the perfect complement to any home.

About BCI

The Better Cotton Initiative is a non-profit, global organisation that aims to help ensure cotton production is improved for the people who produce it. They do this by working alongside cotton-producing organisations while caring for the environment and ensuring the production of cotton is sustainable. 

5.6 million tonnes of Better Cotton was produced in the year 2018-19, accounting for 22% of the cotton produced worldwide. The organisation celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2019 and has achieved many milestones during its first decade. As BCI continues to grow and carry out its work, the hope is that Better Cotton becomes more prevalent and accounts for a larger part of the cotton that is produced worldwide.

Better Cotton Initiative at Fabric Direct Online

At Fabric Direct, we have chosen to add the ILIV Imprint collection to our stores and website to provide our customers with beautiful, high-quality, and sustainable fabrics online at a reasonable price. We remain conscious of the impact that the production of the range may have on the environment and the workers who are involved in the production. The collection is just one way to create positive change in the industry and to help people choose sustainable fabrics for their projects.

The Imprint collection is a range of five different designs on a palette of 27 colours, with something for every project and every home. Both classic and more contemporary designs are included in the collection to offer an array of choices. The designs featured are: Oak Leaf, Great Oak, Pencil Stripe, Rowing Stripe, and Spotty.
