YOLO Colorhouse expanded its reach with a new line of fabrics introduced this month.
YOLO Colorhouse added a selection of organic fabrics to its product line aimed at designing colorful children's rooms, marking the first time the company has branched out beyond environmentally friendly paints.
YOLO, formed in 2005, has made a name for itself by selling non-carcinogenic paints without volatile organic compounds, or VOCs.
This spring the company trotted out a line of fabrics and easy-to-sew patterns to amend its Sprout line of paints designed for use in nursery decor.
"With the growing interest in creating healthier spaces for our youngest family members, the new organic Sprout fabric collection was the perfect next step," Virginia Young, co-founder of YOLO Colorhouse, said in a statement.
The fabrics, made using non-toxic, water-based inks sells for $36 per yard.
YOLO announced last year that Lowe's Home Improvement stores in Oregon, Washington and California would start carrying its paint.
