natural eco performance
A focus on natural fiber fabrics that combines ecological stewardship, performance, durability, and design.
THE LUXURY OF NATURAL FIBERS
The feel of cotton and linen have no counterparts in the synthetic world. That is why Marlatex is committed to producing luxury fabrics made from natural fibers to give clients the quality and feel they have come to expect from us.
CLOSING THE ECO-LOOP
Martlatex has used natural fibers responsibly for over a decade, sourcing up-cycled cotton yarns from a variety of suppliers in North America and Europe. These yarns do not require extra water and dyes in the supply chain since the color comes from processing like-colored reclaimed fabrics and turning them back into raw material.
DURABILITY THROUGH EXPERTISE
With over 30 years of weaving know-how, Marlatex has developed constructions that have over 60% natural fiber content and pass the most stringent commercial standards for abrasion and pilling. Pairing solid constructions with natural fiber strengths, our fabrics often exceed 30,000 double rubs.
ENHANCING NATURAL PERFORMANCE
There are a variety of immersive fabric treatments to increase the soil and stain repellency of fabric. We selected our finishes to ensure that the fabric was washable and that the treatment did not alter the natural hand of our fabrics. Eureka is a proprietary fabric finish specifically for use in demanding home furnishing end-use applications.
