Nice Link Home Furnishings, an upholstery fabric producer to top brands, will introduce its first sustainable fabric line as part of its four-collection debut at ITA Showtime, Nov. 14-17.
The eco-friendly Nice-N-Eco collection helps reduce plastic bottle waste by using 30% recycled fibers in its diverse line inspired by vibrant colors and natural elements of design. The recycled fibers come from internationally recognized brand Repreve.The recycling process is a “chop and wash” that involves washed plastic ground into powders, melted and spun into yarns.
Nice-N-Eco features patterns inspired by nature, such as Tree Farm and Boost, and a mix of vibrant and classic colors of the sky and earth, such as with patterns High Frequency, Brush Creek and Catalan. The sustainable fabric collection rounds out with matte chenille textural body cloths and super soft, durable boucle with the complete range of colors.
“More people are interested in eco-conscious products, but they also want style and comfort in their home,” said Jay Carlson, Nice Link President. “ We are very pleased that Nice-N-Eco is a sustainable solution that also represents the high standards for fabric design and quality that we’re known for in the industry.”
Bold Print Designs
Nice Link expands its print design collection with the launch of First Impressions, making it easy to create high-end designer looks that can be lived on along with accessible price points. From contemporary southwest to fresh watercolor prints, the newest designs in this printed fabric line adds personality to any room.
This new collection is “all about the Wow, and every home needs at least one fabric that does that,” said Stephanie Puckett, vice president of design. The assortment of patterns and colors in Material Matters offers lush and dramatic texture, complex design and construction, stria specialty warp, velvet-like body cloths and more.
The Woven Tales collection is a story of durability in the details. The line uses Nice Link’s high-efficiency looms and beautiful assortment of high tech polyester yarns to create patterns that can live up to the modern lifestyle and stand up to its demands.
