Taking the plunge to make your own home accessories is more popular than ever—sewing machine sales are up from last year! Of course, we don’t expect you to start your next crafty project empty-handed. Every good sewing undertaking involves just the right (sustainable) fabrics. 

Started in 2005 by namesake Harmony Susalla, Harmony Art Organic Fabrics is a long-time favorite of mine. After spending nearly five years designing home goods for big box stores, Harmony struck out on her own and established herself as “eco” from the start.

All of Harmony Art’s fabrics are printed on GOTS-certified organic cotton fabrics with water-based inks in vibrant, time-tested shades. Extending her commitment to sustainability, Harmony Art is also a proud member of Green America and the Organic Trade Association. Harmony also shares her vision for the future of eco-business and organic textiles via a handy-dandy chart

Everyday crafters and creative businesses alike are fans of Harmony’s designs—a full list of companies and professionals who use Harmony Art fabrics is updated regularly online. Harmony’s goal is “to increase the availability of organic cotton,” which is why no company needs permission to use Harmony’s fabrics for its creations.

With 21 printed and 17 solid color fabrics available, Harmony Art provides inspiration for your next handmade project.

BONUS: For a more in-depth peak at Harmony’s history, inspirations, and passion for organic fabrics, read her fantastic interview at the Going Home to Roost blog.
