There are several aspects to producing a green product and Conrad Handwoven Window Coverings cover the majority. The company’s richly textured selection of window coverings is woven on traditional hand-looms which use very little energy and create minimal waste. Sustainable materials such as bamboo, natural flax, hemp and vetiver are rapidly renewable, have little or no VOC emissions and support local economies. Hemp and flax are strong, durable and resistant to ultraviolet exposure; which makes these materials ideal for letting in light while reducing heat exposure.
Some of the natural fibers used to produce Conrad handwoven coverings have anti-mildew and microbial properties as well as a natural resistance to static electricity – thereby reducing dust. Easy maintenance and a long life span round out the list of benefits. Conrad, with over 50 years of green focus, offers a selection of over one hundred covering designs that complement modern, traditional and transitional decor.
