Advice re: Lee fabric choice & 'green' fabric
After much research, I have decided to purchase a Lee Industries sofa and 2 chairs. I was looking for eco-friendly furniture and I am going to upgrade to the "Spring Fiber" package.
Here's my dilemna: Given the eco-friendly nature of the composition of my furniture, I would like to find a fabric for the sofa (will be upholstered, no slipcovers) that will not off-gas but will perform well in a high traffic area with children and a cat.
I like the look and performance of the ultra suede but it is 100% polyester. What is your feeling about the toxicity of polyester?
I have considered Sunbrella, which has a Green Guard certification now, but my retailer had very few fabric options and they were not so great.
I was thinking of doing the chairs in a 100% cotton washable slipcover and not treating the frabic. Is it a mistake not to treat the fabric?
Is there a "green" performance fabric out there? Is Sunbrella the only option?
Thank you in advance for your advice. I have learned a great deal from this forum and appreciate your help!
