Four year ago, when Leigh Anne Van Dusen, one of the founding partners of O Ecotextiles, couldn't find beautiful, safe, natural fiber fabrics to cover her sofa, she realized someone somewhere should be offering such fabrics. "So I teamed up with my MBA, business-savvy sister Patty Grossman and we decided to make fabrics we would love to own in ways that won't hurt the planet—fabrics that are soft, beautiful, and free of synthetic chemical residues." All O Ecotextiles fabrics are available to the trade. Shown here: Ozette in 100% linen with Northern Lights as blue background, made up of 56% organic cotton, 44% bamboo.
