with Deb Barrett
Fabrics and fabric selection has become more exciting and more complex with the new developments in fibers, finishes, construction, not to mention green options. By exploring the various new materials coming to market; comparing and contrasting their characteristics and properties and evaluating their performance and applications, more appropriate fabric specifications can be made for use in interiors and office environments. A discussion of textiles’ role in green design and sustainability including current manufacturing practices, technologies and identification and rating systems will supply the textile tools for making better informed decisions and wiser choices for more appropriate products and healthier lives. We’ll contextualize the knowledge and illustrate relevance through real world application examples.
