Natural Style Summary

Natural Style: Contemporary Soft Furnishings from Cotton, Linen, Silk and Wool by Margot Richardson

Many people prefer natural fabrics over synthetics, and know how to find what they're looking for in natural-fiber clothing. But when it comes to the fabrics used around the home, particularly for window treatments and upholstery, they feel they have to stick with manufactured textiles that are easier to clean and more durable. The good news is that the natural way is making a comeback into every room of the house! Get in on the back-to-nature movement with these proven projects for curtains, blinds, drapes, bed bedroom furnishings, table linens, and chair cushions, all made from cotton, linen, silk, wool, and wool blends. Informative charts show comparisons between natural and synthetic fibers as to their relative strength, absorbency, resilience, and texture, as well as the particular properties found only in natural fabrics that are impossible to copy in synthetics. Simple sewing techniques and patterns are clearly shown for every project, along with tips on how to treat each material, shortcuts for cutting, piping, and mitring methods, and instructions for making special accessories, such as self-cover buttons for cushions, ties for chairs, fringes for curtains, or padded quilt designs for bed linen.
