These fabrics offer more than good looks

The new line of indoor-outdoor Bella-Dura synthetic fabrics is designed to resist stains, microbes and funguses. The fabrics also are made in America from recycled materials and can be recycled again.

While the many design options will be an important part of their appeal for consumers, buyers also might take comfort in knowing that no harmful industrial waste was generated during production, according to the maker. The company also touts its success at water conservation during production.

The designs can be used to add color and texture to indoor and outdoor settings. The 54-inch-wide fabrics are distributed through Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores, including locations in Greensboro, Raleigh, Durham, Fayetteville and Wilmington. Regular prices from $49.99 per yard. www.joann.com – Karen Sullivan
