GDA Staff -- Casual Living, March 28, 2011
GeoBella, a line of outdoor cushion fabrics combining performance, comfort and recyclability, has been added to Tri Vantage's furniture fabric offerings.
Woven by Phifer, Inc. using post-industrial olefin yarn wastes, GeoBella fabrics are PVC-free and 100% recyclable. Available in 78 solid colors, stripes and patterns, GeoBella fabrics are designed for outdoor cushions as well as sling furniture and marine applications.
"GeoBella fabrics do not absorb water and dry quickly, making them resistant to mold and mildew growth," said Tom Koster, marine and furniture products manager for Tri Vantage. "These fabrics are also fade-resistant, stain-resistant and easy to clean. Backed by a three-year warranty, GeoBella fabrics are an excellent, value-oriented offering."
Phifer is a leader in the insect screen, solar screen, drawn wire, interior solar control fabrics, engineered products and outdoor designer fabrics industries. The company also offers lines of sun control fabrics and designed fabrics for outdoor furniture that are 100% recyclable. These PVC-free fabrics are generated from a core yarn that is born out of post-industrial waste byproduct, which lends itself to repeat recyclability for continued sustainability.
