At the Green Business Conference in San Francisco last November, Harmony met organ- ic-apparel designer Kate Scott. During their conversation, it became apparent there was a huge void in available organic prints. Costly and requiring large runs, printed organic fabric was only available to the “big” players. “For the rest of us, the choices were leftovers from larger companies,” explains Harmony. “Why settle for corporate leftovers?!”


Harmony Art’s first prints, released this month, are 233-thread-count organic cotton sateens in 110” widths. All are available in quantities from one to thousands of yards. Their exquisite de- signs, derived from the geometrics and patterns of nature, command instant attention. “I want people to fall in love with these prints,” states Harmony. “The organic shift in fiber production is critical to our collective health. But this line isn’t about guilt; it is about gorgeous!”


Part of what makes Harmony Art prints unique is the process she uses to create her patterns. All of the “Season One” prints are a direct result of the time she spends exploring and hiking the northern California coast. “Whispering Grass,” part of the initial release, was inspired by the foliage in her own backyard. “All of the plants in the print are native. None of them were cultivat- ed, they just grew of their own accord,” explains Harmony.


Product designers are thrilled with this new direction. Expect to see “Season One” prints everywhere soon: on apparel, bedding, accesso- ries and more. Ad- ditional prints from the “Season One” line will be released later this year.
