Mother-In-Law

Did you know that last Monday was National Mother-In-Law Day?

I hope that everyone remembered to celebrate😊! Now just to clarify, I really do love my mother-in-law.  She's great!!  How lucky am I that she stays out of our business, well, most of the time.  I know what you are thinking, I am just trying to stay on her good side.  Don't worry, I am 99.9% sure that her Jitterbug phone doesn't even have internet service, so she will never even read this!  Remember how I told you that she stays out of our business??  I guess that doesn't include her giving me her opinion on, well, just about everything! But isn't that what mother-in-laws are supposed to do?  

I was so excited, I told my mother-in-law that we were getting a new sofa.  "What color is it?" she asked.  "It's white!" I said. Dead silence.....then she said "Honey, are you sure that you want to do that?  I don't think that is a good idea.  You know white is going to be really hard to keep clean!"  I responded, excited that for once, I could correct her, of course, nicely.  "No, it's not just any white fabric! It's a Revolution fabric!!"  No worries for me!  If it gets dirty, it easily cleans with a little soap and water, add some bleach for the tougher stains. I am so excited I can finally get the white sofa that I have always wanted!!!

So this weekend my Mom and her friends took me to a cool music festival.
Yes. They allowed me in. Need I say more?
While I was at the festival I scanned the crowd and thought how awesome Revolution Performance Fabrics® really are!

People use plates and napkins to eat festival foods for the fear of staining their clothes.
Revolution Fabrics are stain resistant for life.

People go to festivals to spend time with friends and family.
Revolution Fabrics are 100% Made in the USA, by a family owned factory.

Revolution Performance Fabrics® make life easy!
How cool would it be to have a Revolution dog bed to lay on.... 

Well.. Mom just got home I best go tell her about my idea!

Until next time....

Nothing Compares

        So… in a recent email that I received from a customer wanting to know where she could buy Revolution Performance Fabrics®, she said that she had looked at a lot of other performance fabrics and she couldn’t find anything that compared.  I told her that she was right!  Nothing compares to Revolution!!  How many fabrics can you buy that are Made in the USA, chemical free, affordable and still look fashionable and feel incredible??   Actually 287 to be exact (as of today), and they are all Revolution.  We challenge you to find something better!

1. forming an essential foundation or starting point; fundamental.

Most of the time when you are designing a fabric, you are not thinking about what you would personally want in your home. Of course your personality comes through, but it’s not really about what you want but what others will want. Sometimes, those two things come together and it gets you especially pumped up about showing and sharing. This is how I feel about this new style Basic. The name fits, it is a true basic like your favorite jeans, shoes, black dress… it is a classic in your wardrobe that goes with everything and is with you for years. Basic is an awesome foundation for many looks. The boucle yarn component gives it texture and random berber type colors that give it that versatility. Oh and by the way, it’s REVOLUTION!

High tech meets low tech

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.

Going for the gold🏅

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.

Colors Inspired by Nature

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.

Texture Inspired by Nature....

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.
