Eco-Friendly

“Eco-Friendly” is becoming much more than just a catch phrase in today’s world – it’s becoming a way of life. The motor coach and transit bus markets are becoming more conscious of their impact on the environment.

As a result, La France is responding with an environmentally friendly product, while also, upgrading our manufacturing process to be more ecologically sensitive. Eco-Friendly fabric is created using recycled yarn on an energy efficient jacquard weaving system. The yarn is produced using both post consumer waste (plastic water bottles) and post production fiber waste. This process reclaims valuable renewable resources from the waste stream and converts them into something useful. It takes less energy resources to produce Eco-Friendly fabric than beginning the process from scratch.

Eco-Friendly fabric is an everyday reminder that you are sensitive to the environment and sustainability.

In addition, Eco-Friendly fabrics offer excellent resistance to abrasion and superior color fastness and retention. They are also extremely durable and easy to clean.

Many patterns and colors are now readily available. We are pleased that all La France fabrics are made in the USA.
