- Weitzner is committed to the ongoing improvement of the material health of our products and the reduction of their impact on the environment.
- Weitzner is committed to product transparency and is partnering with our mills, suppliers, and finishing companies to provide as much information as possible on our fabric or wallcovering’s chemical content and corresponding potential health risks.
- Weitzner is committed to designing fabrics and wallcoverings with performance and durability built-in, without the need for additional chemistry in backings, finishes or FR treatments whenever possible.
At Weitzner we believe it is our responsibility to bring to market products that have as little “chemistry” (flame retardants, stain repellents, backings, etc) added as possible.
We endeavor to design materials that are well constructed and engineered to wear without the need for additional performance-enhancing finishes.
We also recognize that the requirements of some installations dictate the need for performance and FR finishes, and we offer those products finished with the most effective and sustainable option available to us.
As a boutique design company specializing in unique and innovative materials, we often partner with small bespoke mills, yarn spinners, and dyer, handweaver, and artisan paper makers—many of which do not have the resources to do the analysis and testing required for product transparency documentation even when they are using environmentally responsible methods. We continue to strive for environmental responsibility and the ability to document it whenever possible.
For specific transparency/sustainability information, please refer to the spec page for each product on our website.
