Many of us are looking for ways to make smarter and greener choices, whether that be purchasing used clothes or looking for food with less packaging. Although this is a step in the right direction, we believe that we all need to play a bigger role in becoming a more sustainable world for our future generations to come!
One of the major issues we are currently facing in the textile industry is our tendency to throw away an old or worn item when it still has many years of life left. Did you know that over 22 million pieces of furniture are discarded every year in the UK alone, most ending up in landfill sites.
The build up of landfill sites not only has a huge impact on nature, it is also putting us at risk of harmful chemicals and greenhouse gases! Image Credit – Sarah E Shephard
That is where we step in. We can often fall into the trap of buying new furnishings to fit in with current trends and overlook that the base of the product is actually in perfect condition. We understand that furnishings can get pretty worn but there is no need to buy new when all you need is a little TLC (and one of our gorgeous fabrics)!
Here at Create Fabrics we are doing our part by adding more sustainable ranges to our growing collection and also aiming to educate our customers on greener upholstery methods!
We currently have over 300 sustainable fabrics in stock and are actively working on adding more! Take a look at a couple of our favourite sustainable collections below!
With over 5,500 fabrics in stock and a range of different materials, we have one of the most extensive collections of upholstery fabrics in the UK! Most of all, we create fabrics that are made to withstand the test of time.
We are saying no to landfill, are you?
