OUR SUSTAINABILITY STORY

Even as a small local business, we pride ourselves on being leaders in sustainable fabrics for upholstery and interior design. This ethos has been at the core of our business for the last 17 years and we continue to evolve our products and practices to meet the highest standards available to us.

 

In 2004, we completely overhauled our supply chain to ensure all our fabrics were environmentally certified, and officially changed our name from ‘Living Fabrics’ to ‘Sustainable Living Fabrics.’ Since then, we have continued to recertify and evolve our practices as the industries understanding of true sustainability grows. When specifying any of our fabrics, you can trust that they are all set to the same high environmental standards.

OUR MISSION

We are passionate about supporting and supplying our fabrics to projects that redefine boundaries within the interior design industry. Our focus is true sustainability throughout our entire supply chain. The way of design is changing, the industry is prioritising sustainability on all levels and we are proud to be part of that change.


Our incredible team is trained to advise architects, interior designers, and other collaborators about the benefits of sustainable design. Our key values are to provide an aesthetically beautiful, locally made and durable product that has long term cost effectiveness and minimal impact on the environment.
