The fabrics of the future

Posted by Rachel Westall on 9 February 2021

During this current world situation, many of the new products Michael's Bridal Fabrics has added to its collection have been eco-friendly. There are a variety of reasons why fabrics can come under this category. Among the products being offered are French laces using organic cotton and organic viscose where the trees cut down to make the wood pulp into viscose are renewed with two new trees planted for each tree cut down. There are also some guipure laces which are 90 per cent recycled polyester.

The fabrics of the future There are also a variety of polyester based plain fabrics that use a large percentage of recycled yarns, like duchess satins and Mikado qualities, including 100 per cent recycled poly tulle. There are also a few different qualities of crepes, one of which is made with some recycled polyester and a couple made from organic acetate and recycled viscose. There's also a growing range of natural eco products which includes a mixture of plains, checks, stripes, fancy weave small designs made out of banana, milk, orange, bamboo and rose petals!

Michael Bristow, owner of Michael's Bridal Fabrics comments: "In the current climate it has been difficult to judge exactly how popular all of these are going to become, but there's a lot of enthusiasm for them when customers find out that we have these products available at a relatively small additional cost to similar non eco-friendly products. They are the fabrics of the future."
