Fabrics with natural fibers

There's a lot to love about natural fibers like cotton, linen and flax. They're breathable, feel great and get softer with use. We blend natural fibers with synthetic fibers to keep their soft feel but improve durability.

Fabrics with a stain-repellent finish

Only a handful of our fabrics are treated with a stain-repellent finish because synthetic fibers are inherently stain resistant. However, we think a few of our fabrics do better with this treatment, which causes moisture to bead on the surface and gives you more time to react before a stain sets.
