Sequoia looks as good as it performs. It is one of our most durable fabrics and will perform well in even the most demanding home or contract environments while at the same time, being sophisticated in texture and luxurious in hand feel.
Viscose is a regenerative, biodegradable man-made cellulosic fiber made from cellulose, most commonly wood pulp, but many plants can be used, such as bamboo. We believe that viscose is the future for responsible textiles. Synthetic fibers, including recycled polyesters, harm our planet and damage our waters for many reasons, including microfiber shedding.

Giant sequoias (also called "coast redwoods") are nature's superlatives: the world's largest single tree and largest living thing by volume, growing to an average height of 50-85M / 164-279ft; and they're among the oldest living things on Earth. Even the bark of the tree grows up to 3 feet thick! Sequoias have a truly distinctive appearance, and stands of these ancient trees are some of the most fascinating and mesmerizing environments on earth.
Sequoia is washable, although its very heavy weight means that it is most likely not a good idea to wash over 7 yards in your home machines. Its weight also makes for an extremely long time in the dryer. If you do wash, the first time in cool temperatures shrinkage is minimal; in hot temperatures, shrinkage is about 6% in length and 4% in width.
