A client introduced Danielle to Tencel®, an eco-friendly, "green" fiber made from self-sustaining tree farms. Originally used in the apparel market, Tencel® fiber is soft yet strong, and easy to care for. When mixed with natural fibers, Tencel® is the perfect fabric enhancer, adding strength, color absorbency and a soft drape. Danielle and her client developed the idea of bringing Tencel®, combined with natural fibers, into the home market.
Currently distributed under the Great Plains label by Holly Hunt, the fabric developed by Danielle is ideally suited for drapery and upholstery applications.
