Au Naturel

Jorge Arango

Phillip Jeffries Ltd. was eco-chic back in 1976, before this idea caught marketing buzzword fire. Purveying natural wall coverings made from rapidly renewable, biodegradable, and recycled materials, the company continues to ramp up the elegance quotient with its new Embroidered Manila Hemp collection. The line balances luxury and sustainability by embroidering a classic, vine-like pattern with metallic gold or white thread on grass cloth made of more rustic Manila hemp. The juxtaposition is at once sophisticated and casual, perfect for that vacation villa in St. Bart’s. At suggested retail it would run about $150 per yard, and it’s available only to the trade.
