If colorful, energetic, comfortable, and patterned fabrics are what you love, then Rubie Green is the place for you. Plus, they are all eco-friendly, using 100% organic cotton proving that natural does not have to be boring.
Designer Michelle Adams has a degree in apparel and textile design from Michigan State University, and after the realization that eco-friendly textiles in classic prints could not be found anywhere, Michelle took the opportunity to combine her passions for design and sustainability to create Rubie Green in 2007.
I love Michelle’s philosophy and drive, which she describes best: “our professor taught us that if we were going to put more products onto the earth then we needed to do so responsibly. It’s a concept that has stuck with me throughout the entire manufacturing process, despite the fact that it would have been twenty times easier to manufacture in traditional ways.”
I am smitten by the bright colors and exciting patterns in Rubie Green’s collection that you can find and even order on their website! And you can use these fabrics for anything! Doesn’t the leopard print look gorgeous on that chair? You can create an eclectic home without breaking your budget by just playing with a variety of fabrics with different colors, styles and prints.
If you’re bored with your pillow cases, you can cover your pillow fillings with fresh and exciting colors, and don’t just stop there. Go ahead and create a new throw, curtains, seat covers, and place mats. Could you think of interesting ways you could use fabric to liven up your home?
