Designer Laura Guido Clark, whose clientele includes the likes of Apple and Mattel, turned to historic handwork and crafting techniques such as block printing and crochet when she created the five patterns in the Freehand collection for Pallas Textiles. Of the five patterns, Hooked, Block Party, and Stamped Out are available with a GreenShield finish for stain resistance, and Hooked and Block Party are bleach cleanable. The three patterns are made mostly or entirely with recyclable or recycled nylon or polyester. Meanwhile, Criss Crossing is made from Crypton, an engineered textile with an integrated moisture barrier that resists staining, mildew, bacterial growth, and odors. Laced Up is made from Crypton InCase, a stain-resistant, antimicrobial fabric that releases no detectable perfluorooctanoic acids (PFOAs) and has earned both SCS Indoor Advantage and Cradle to Cradle Silver certification. pallastextiles.com
