    Textile Safety, Why and How to Green your Textile Choices, With an explanation of Fire Codes and required FR

    with Patty Grossman of Two Sisters Ecotextiles 

    If you have not had a customer ask you for fire retardant free fabric and furniture before, you will. Or chemical free, or non-toxic.

    Patty will give you the information with which to answer these questions for your customers and prospects.

    We will look at WHY you should be concerned about greening your textile choices, and then, HOW you can green your textile choices. We'll highlight some of the chemicals used in textile manufacturing and tell you how they affect human health. We'll look at some of the issues raised by having chemically infused fabrics in our homes and offices, then we'll look at which certifications might be useful in evaluating fabrics.

    Finally, we'll give you a few things you can do to help change the damaging trajectory. Part of the HOW will be to look at the many certifications for fabrics - their strengths and weaknesses. 

    About Patty Grossman....


    As co-founder and CEO of Two Sisters Ecotextiles and OEcotextiles from June, 2006 until the present, Patty raised $1.5 million from angel investors to produce the first collection of Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) certified interiors fabrics in the world. GOTS is a new and stringent third party certification assuring lack of toxicity of the process and the product for fabrics. The result of three years of research and development, OEcotextiles' collection has garnered impressive kudos including the House and Garden award for "Best Merchandise" at the collection's very first trade show, Decorex, in London, September, 2007; Two Sisters/OEcotextiles were chosen by the 2008 Sundance Film Festival for their VIP lounge; the founders were called eco-heroes by London's Sunday Telegraph; and were chosen as one of the Top Ten Green Products of 2008 by the oracle of the green building industry, Environmental Building News and Built Green.
