Everything you need to sew, Naturally! Sustainable Fabrics and Notions.
At NearSea Naturals
Our commitment to providing high-quality, delightful sustainable fabrics enables you - home sewists, designers, and green businesses alike - to craft with confidence. We appreciate the trust you place in us, and work every day to deserve it.
Know that we:
Focus on US-made fabrics, working to revive the US textile industry with our American Grown•Spun•Milled initiative
Only offer undyed or low-impact-dyed fabrics (and have a wonderful collection of colorgrown cottons, where the cotton actually grows in shades of brown or green)
Source only eco-friendly fabrics and notions (and no greenwashing either - we won't sell "eco-friendly bamboo fabric" until and unless the process to make it is truly sustainable)
Offer a special line of organic cotton fabrics - the ML Marsh Collection: Organic Designer Fabrics - created by a designer, for designers (but yes, non-designers can use it too!)
Reduce our carbon footprint with a location in Asheville, NC, centrally located to what remains of the domestic textile industry (see our press release)
Are able to produce fabrics, from thread to finishing, within 100 miles of that location
Think everyone should "go green for the whole nine yards!" ... and we work to make that both possible and enjoyable, too
