Sustainable Living Fabrics’ ongoing commitment to the design community has proven that toughness comes in every colour of the rainbow.

It’s startling to think that the sustainable design movement is still in its infancy. Watchwords like ‘eco’, ‘environmental’, ‘recycle’ and ‘repurpose’ are certainly within industry vernacular. Though it’s incredibly heartening to observe the blanket embrace of sustainable design practice in the A+D community, there is undoubtedly still some way to go.
Issues surrounding supply, specification, manufacture and logistics continue to frustrate attempts to reduce the footprint of projects. And this is where Sustainable Living Fabrics tackles the nexus of problematic non-ecological practice.
Fully eco-friendly from sheep to in situ, Sustainable Living Fabrics are the well-established and well-loved supplier of heavy duty commercial upholstery that has been servicing Australia’s interiors for over 40 years. Working closely alongside designers from all around Australia, their savvy teams of reps provide sampling and assistance as required to ensure projects are that carefree smooth-sailing experience they always ought.
The one thing to remember about Sustainable Living Fabrics is that they’re simply crazy for colour. They find inspiration from absolutely anywhere and everywhere, both in and out of the A+D industry. When creating new ranges, their very own in-house team work tirelessly on colour concepts that can be adapted into any palette, texture or pattern – but always with the Australian market and client in mind.
Sustainable Living Fabrics are renowned Australia-wide for an already massive range of colourways for products that are synonymous for uncompromising quality and unflinching durability. Sustainable Chelsea is one range that has proven itself to be time and time again ultra-popular with designers. So when new ranges such as the Sustainable Coastline are introduced, Sustainable Living Fabrics’ in-house brains ensure that the colours complement their existing collection and can work seamlessly back into any project.
Endeavouring to create a wholly comprehensive and cohesive colour palette, the addition of each new range makes it easy to put different design concepts together, and push the boundaries of our projects.
As one of the foremost suppliers of heavy duty commercial upholstery fabrics in the country, Sustainable Living Fabrics maintain a crucially open dialogue with the A+D community to ensure that products and designs are fresh, inspiring and commercially viable. An ongoing commitment to extensive research and development, including colour forecasting, global trends and consumer practices, promises that their fabrics will stand both the test of time and any challenge the contemporary interior can pose.
