Park B. Smith Rolls Out Fashion Recycled Goods

New developments in recycled fabrics with a fashion flair and lots of decorative embellishments highlight the new bedding, rugs, window coverings and kitchen textiles at Park B. Smith.

Adding to its Eco-Ordinates and recycled cotton of the past, the company is now launching a comprehensive recycled program that includes bedding, blankets, shower curtains, comforter fills and quilt fills, window coverings, rugs and table linens.

The materials of either recycled polyester or recycled cotton are derived from fabric cuttings that are shredded into fibers, then spun into yarn and finally woven into fabric. "First, the fabrics are real, second they are pretty and third, there's no premium on price," pointed out Linda Johnson, president.

Fabrics range from light weights to flannel to plaids, with embellishments that include wood buttons that are also recycled.

Within the recycled program is the White Collection, a range of product that is pure white from shower curtains to blankets.

The new Eileen West bath collection sports lots more embellishments, especially in fabric details from faggoting to banding, cutwork and lace.

A spring color palette with brights, including a thematic tropical blue, highlights the kitchen and table linens introductions. The recycled movement also is key in the Service for One program that features a mat, napkin and napkin ring — all recycled — at $7.99 for the set.

New in rugs are chenille tapestries in a wide range of colors and patterns, as well as rugs and table linens in novelty designs with accompanying accessories including tote bags, wine carriers and the like. Rugs using the recycled process are a major piece of the introductions in a variety of designs. Price points are $19 to $39 for the 20-by-30 to 30-by-42.

In window, the major story is the insulated and recycled Magic Blinds program that is shown in six styles with the 30-by-72 at $79. Other new window styles also feature the recycled fabrics, as well as trims like wood buttons that also are recycled.
