Performance fabrics are value-added materials that are specifically engineered for uses where performance is more valuable than style.

Performance fabric is ideally suited for both indoor and outdoor purposes. Modern manufacturing has completely revolutionized the quality of the fabrics now available, making them more durable, attractive and quality focused.

As it turns out, however, not all fabric manufacturers are the same. Many operate using materials that are harmful to the environment or create massive amounts of unnecessary waste. One company stands out, however.

Bella-Dura is a family owned performance fabric brand owned by Wearbest Sil-Tex Mills that provides American-made sustainable fabric. They focus on producing green products via a sustainable product life cycle. Let’s explore a bit more about how Bella-Dura does this and why you should choose their products.

Built for Performance

Bella-Dura fabrics are uniquely engineered for performance. This includes both indoor and outdoor uses. Thoroughly tested, Bella-Dura performance fabric is stain-resistant, antimicrobial, bleach-cleanable, and anti-fungal. It can also withstand some 50,000 double rubs (proven) and some 1,500 UV lightfast hours. You get all this performance in a single material. That’s all but unheard of in the fabric world!

Bella-Dura was developed as a direct response to the industry’s demand for fabric that could outperform at every level. Today, their fabric is an all-and-one solution for both indoor and outdoor environments.

Eco-Friendly & Sustainable

Sustainability is a key feature of Bella-Dura fabrics. They are 100% recyclable and come with a Cradle to Cradle silver level Certificate by the MBDC. This means that regardless of the color or pattern you choose, each one is completely “green.”

On top of that goodness, Bella-Dura sustainable fabric is the leading eco-friendly textile on the market. All their fabric starts as a by-product of post-industrial waste and ends as a fully recyclable product. Very few brands take this approach to their product life cycle.

After their yarn and fabrics have reached the end of their life cycle, they are sent to the Bella-Dura yarn manufacturer and become part of a larger recycle stream where products are regenerated using energy-saving manufacturing processes. They end up becoming a wide range of products including hard plastic automotive parts, truck bedliners, flowerpots, and so much more.

In terms of their manufacturing process, Wearbest Sil-Tex Mills works hard to use less energy in their production. Minimal water and environmental waste are produced as a result, and since their fabrics are recyclable, everything is part of a much longer life cycle.

In comparison to fabrics like polyester, Bella-Dura sustainable fabric requires significantly less energy and natural resources. The recycle stream of their products is a closed loop. If you care about sustainability or eco-friendlies, then this is the performance fabric to buy.

American Made

Wearbest Sil-Tex Mills is a family-run, American Manufacturer. Based in New Jersey, Wearbest was originally founded in the 1940s by Philip Gasner. By 1980, his grandson, Irwin Gasner, took over operations and switched focus from luxury wear to residential and commercial fabrics. Today, Wearbest is in the fourth generation of Gasners, with Philip’s great-grandson at the helm. They continue to focus on quality fabrics. We’re confident you’ll find their performance fabric second to none on the market.
