Floral Fantasy Aubergine Cotton Sateen Fabric by Rosanna Hope

Organic cotton upholstery fabric


  • contain a lot of chemicals - chemicals that are sometimes outlawed in other products - such as:
  • Even a fabric that is advertised as being made of "100% organic cotton" is actually about 77% cotton and 23% synthetic chemicals (if conventionally processed, as most are).

The fabrics we live with also contribute to environmental pollution:

  • Textile processing uses a lot of water - it takes about 500 gallons to make enough fabric to cover just one sofa, making the textile industry the #1 industrial polluter of fresh water in the world.
  • Textile processing also uses great quantities of chemicals: it can take 25 pounds of chemicals to create the fabric for that one sofa. The process water, full of chemicals, may be dumped into our groundwater untreated, where it will first impact fish and other aquatic animals, and then it will be used by farmers to irrigate fields, entering our food chain.

Organic fabrics are made from natural (preferably organically grown) fibers. But what makes a fabric "organic" is not simply the fact that organic fibers are used, but that the entire process was done using chemicals which have been found to be safe for humans. Think of making applesauce: you can start with organic apples, but if you add Red Dye #2, preservatives, emulsifiers, stabilizers and other synthetic chemicals, the USDA won't let you call the finished product "organic". The same is true with fabrics.

That doesn't mean that Two Sisters does not use chemicals - only that the chemicals used have been proven not to alter your genetic makeup or cause other health problems for you, frogs, hummingbirds and other living creatures.
