Styles Spice and Opulent fall into the shibori style category. This look has been on trend for awhile, but it seems to be gaining momentum. And, now you can have the look in a performance fabric with a PLUS! These two styles are also machine washable. Very relaxed and comfy like your favorite pair of jeans! So you can relax with your new fabric… no worries of an accident… easy to clean… because life happens!
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.
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....
Over the years, I have been asked “whatcha doing?” when I had yarn skeins out. My answer has been… “coloring". Some people have cutely responded: “make sure you stay in the lines”. Today I am coloring the lines… a new Revolution stripe... Ombre. We are excited about a new collection of stripes that is now in the development phase. The first step in creating a stripe is to come up with the layout. Paying attention to the scale and proportion. The next step is coloring the stripe. A lot of things are taken into consideration in this phase:
How many colorways to do in the style? Red, blue, green, neutral… multi, bright, dull etc.
It is best to follow a formula... light in the same position in every stripe. If you break the formula, you can change the personality of the stripe totally.
“This color looks like a different pattern!” It’s cool to have a job where you color for a living!
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!
Sales have already been exceeding expectations!!!!!

col·lab·o·ra·tion: the action of working with someone to produce or create something
We love to collaborate with our customers and with each other as designers developing our Revolution product. It can be as simple as creating a special color in an existing style (see Abode Willow). Or, as complicated as creating an entire collection of fabrics that work together.
I am excited to share with you one of the most recent collaborations. Our new social and marketing manager, Dani Bellomo, shared an idea she found recently on a friend’s skirt. So, taking inspiration from the look we created an awesome new revolution style. The soft subtle stripe, Collaborate, has tons of texture. The effect being created with weaves and boucle yarns.
Dani has been amazing to work with. She started with the company on June 1st. It is great to have someone to bounce ideas off of… informal critique. We welcome the opportunity to work with customers… collaborate, engineer… bring ideas to reality
