NATIONAL TEXTILES DAY
From fashionable style to everyday necessity, textiles provide us with a wealth of design possibilities. On May 3rd, we recognize all that textiles do to improve our lives with National Textiles Day.
Textiles are woven fibers of either natural or synthetic materials. The resulting fabric is used to make coverings for a variety of uses from clothing and bedding to furniture covers as well as rugs, drapery, and canvas for art and shelter.
Not only does textile lend itself to multiple uses it is versatile, and its texture and color are unlimited.
Sustainability and environmentally friendly approaches to producing textiles are an important part of the manufacturing process in the modern era. Valley Forge Fabrics is a company dedicated to living and working harmoniously with the environment. They have a reclamation take-back program for many of their products that have been in place since 2008.
