Meet Revolution pattern Chic.. a swirl pattern in bright retro colors as well as a full range of neutrals. And the coordinating Revolution pattern Flirtation is an undulating dot available in a rainbow of matching colors.
Pattern Idlewood (wait...doesn't this pattern look familiar) takes me back to childhood summers, strolling through fields of wildflowers, and picking a bouquet of daisies for my mother. This retro pattern is a throwback to days gone by with a refreshing twist of color based on today’s trends. Best of all, it’s Revolution, so it can be enjoyed for many years to come.
The beauty of vibrant color in its purest form peaks through a crack in the windowpane on an early Spring morning, finding its resting place on the muted surface of the sofa. The irony is breathtaking. If only this spectrum of color could be held. . . could be harnessed. . . could be experienced again and again. Vibrant color finds its eternal home in this pattern called “Spin City.” Inhale. . . exhale. . . and experience color again and again. Bring the joy of new, bleach cleanable Revolution jacquards to your home… even if you live on the dark side of the moon. . .
STI celebrated the second birthday of Revolution Performance Fabrics® a few weeks ago. Now this week is my two year anniversary working at STI. It is such a pleasure to be a part of a growing textile manufacturing company located right here in Kings Mountain, North Carolina.
I am beyond excited to be a part of the Product Development team and the "revolution" that we have created.
Here is a collection of our high tech Revolution Performance Fabrics® that are inspired by low tech hand loomed fabrics. These fabrics are inspired by: French grain sacks, Haitian cottons, and vintage hand loomed fabrics. We are drawn to the natural looking soft easy to live with fabric. Now, they are truly easy to live with because of their clean ability and durability. Not only are they beautiful they’re performance.

I have to say that I absolutely love the Olympics. I am amazed by all of the time and dedication that goes into training. I love seeing athletes make history, inspire others and transform lives.
So I was thinking about a fabric Olympics. Who would win? Revolution Performance Fabrics® from Team U.S.A. of course! Our training? We have dedicated time and energy into developing a product that is cleanable, chemical free, affordable and made to last. We have run trials to prove that we are ready. We are up on the podium, now let us show you that we are worthy of a gold medal!!
Yes we are making history, not on the same level as the true Olympians, but we are showing the world that you CAN have a fabric that you can live with and not have to worry about harsh chemical treatments that are harmful to your body. You CAN have a fabric that is affordable. You CAN have a fabric that is made to last. Let us inspire you and transform your life.
Nature is the best inspiration for color and color combinations. The range of colors within a single flower, autumn leaves on a mountain, or a brilliant sunset offer beautiful color combinations.

The newest Revolution stripe added to The Glen Read Collection, pattern Baltic, with the look and hand of organic cotton, along with the remarkable ability to have stains removed with just a little soap and water.
I have always been drawn to the textures of nature when seeking inspiration for new design ideas. Living in the foothills of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains most certainly has an influence on this magic pull to nature as design. An artist interprets the world around him and funnels that interpretation into chosen media such as painting, sculpture or fabric design. Producing Revolution Performance Fabrics®, my mind takes ease in knowing these fabrics can and do have a positive influence on nature, creating a much smaller footprint than other performance fabrics in the marketplace. Do we add potentially harmful PFC chemicals to our fabrics? Certainly not. By using Olefin yarns, the pigments are an integral component of the yarn, and we are actually using yarn produced from what was formerly waste products. It is certainly reassuring, and almost liberating to interpret the textures of my world by producing a fabric with the smallest carbon footprint of any synthetic fiber.
So, can Revolution Performance Fabrics® change our world? I'd certainly like to think so.
No, not stain resistant lingerie; though that might not be a bad idea…
We’re talking slipcovers!
Now you can turn that dingy old sofa,
back into the beautiful piece of furniture that you've always wanted!
But these aren’t the same old slipcovers you’ve known.
This is an addition to our Revolution Performance Fabrics® collection!
Check out this awesome video about how easy it is to clean:
I’ve been so excited to share this project but I’ve been too busy making slipcover patterns!
So many choices in textures and beautiful colors… even stripes. And this is just the beginning!
You’ll love updating your old furniture with cleanable and beautiful slipcovers!
But face it, you’re still looking at the lingerie picture.
It’s OK… 😄
I have gathered my snacks and I am ready to Netflix and chill. I want to watch "The Fox and the Hound" again. Days like this are special when my mom accidentally leaves all my favs within paws reach. I know she won't be upset with me for eating on the sofa. Our new sofa is covered in Revolution Performance Fabric®. Revolution fabrics are virtually unstainable, easy to clean and do not contain PFCs. That's good to know if you plan on using the couch as a buffet. Revolution is easy for my Mom to clean so when she gets home tonight this behavior will be considered cute not problematic. No PFCs means no chemicals in my tummy. Everyone wins!
Until next time....
My Mom is pretty excited about her new sofa, she mentioned something about it being from Mayo furniture and that it had Revolution Performance Fabrics® on it. She says "the fabrics are virtually unstainable, easy to clean, and extremely durable; yet beautiful and soft while also being resistant to fading from the sun. She also said that "they are made here in Kings Mountain, North Carolina." I'm not sure I know what all that means, but I think that means I can eat anything on the sofa and she won't get mad. Let the games begin! Woof!
