Ideal blends the outstanding strength of hemp and linen (40K Martindale Double-Rubs), with the wonderful softness of cotton and ramie. The nubby, cozy feel will draw you into a intimate comfort and ease on your EcoBalanza piece. All Ideal fabric carries Oeko Tex Standard 100 certification, so you can feel comfort that Ideal has been tested post-production and shown to be free of chemicals known or suspected to harm humans of any size.
NOTE: In addition to Oeko Tex certification, as of November 2015, Ideal Bark is also fully GOTS certified, while all other colors are GOTS compliant with the exception of third-party organic certification of the ramie fibers. Our supplier is working to elevate all Ideal to full GOTS certification soon.
If you expect machine washing slipcovers to be part of your care for your EcoBalanza piece, Ideal has no measurable shrinkage. We recommend that you keep machine washing to a minimum to avoid the wear and change of character this can cause over time -and always in cold water with a line dry to save on resources.
For fabric attached to the frame of your EcoBalanza piece, we recommend vacuuming every few months (preferably with an upholstery attachment) to keep your upholstery looking its best over time. Dirt and dust contribute to the breakdown of natural fibers, so this simple step can extend the life of your fabric considerably.
