Milliken & Company, a leading global textile technology company, has launched eco-based performance fabric, Breathe by Milliken™. This is industry’s first fluorine-free performance fabrics available in both natural and manmade fibres made from plastic bottles and a plant-based water repellent.
The manufacturer created Breathe textiles with selected consumers in mind to address the growing need for more environment-friendly, effective and high-quality performance home upholstery fabrics.
David Smith, Vice President (Engineered Performance Products), Milliken & Company, said, “Today’s consumers are better informed and more concerned about product content than ever before – who makes it, what it is made of and how it is made. Every aspect of this product was designed to address this concern. Consumers can breathe easy knowing their beautiful furniture is protected from stains and wear in a much more sustainable way.”

Breathe by Milliken™ fabrics have been extensively tested by certified third parties and meet industry standards including flammability, water repellency-level, soil release, spot cleaning, colour-fastness, and abrasion resistance. The company claims that Breathe fabrics meet these standards without adding fluorine, formaldehyde, fire retardants or other chemicals of concern. Unlike common spray-on stain resistance treatments, Breathe fabrics are engineered textiles, providing lasting protection.
Breathe by Milliken™ fabrics have also achieved GREENGUARD® GOLD certification, which symbolizes that products designed for use in indoor spaces resist chemical emissions.
