"Eco Intelligent" Fabrics for Commercial Interiors

A Quebec-based manufacturer of contract fabrics is the first to offer a line of polyester textiles that meet a stringent set of ecological criteria developed by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC). The Eco Intelligent™ fabrics from Victor Innovatex are made in accordance with MBDC’s “cradle-to-cradle” protocol. In this protocol, each material, chemical, and process is screened for compliance with a series of ecological and human health criteria. The resulting fabric is available to designers through The Designtex Group and will soon be available in office furniture from Steelcase, Designtex’s parent company. Other companies are also expected to introduce products using Eco Intelligent fabrics.
