WE ARE MAKERS
Proudly building on a tradition of craftsmanship
At IMPWEARhome, we are proud to be part of the community of makers in Seattle. We are inspired to make functional things that are beautiful, unique and kind to people and our planet. We love transforming materials into useful products that become part of people’s lives.
We enthusiastically embrace “slow design.” We believe that less is more and offer you quality that lasts. We focus on process, origin and materials, while valuing the environment and the individual. Our products are designed to last and when it is time to retire them, they are biodegradable.
We live life to the fullest. We cram every minute with fun, play, work. We make fail-proof products that hold up to your projects, your adventures, and your dinner parties. We don’t believe a little spilled milk (or wine) should stop the joy.
Our products to enhance your life & you'll do less laundry
We balance style & function to create useful products that look great.
Our fabrics, bags and home goods are useful and durable to support your busy lifestyle. But useful doesn’t have to be dull. Our laminated cotton is luscious, drapey and buttery-soft to the touch. No stiff oilcloth tablecloths here. Designing our own fabrics is a passion. Our ever expanding collection of fabrics is boldly colorful and inspired by the zestiness of life.
QUALITY THAT LASTS
Our fabrics & handmade products withstand the wear and tear of daily use.
Each IMPWEARhome piece is hand-made in Seattle by home sewers and family owned businesses who take tremendous pride in everything they create. Our 100% cotton fabric is coated with a matte-finish polyurethane which makes it water, stain and heat-resistant – you can even put a pot hot from the stove onto our tablecloths. Simply wipe your bag, tablecloth, apron or bib down or throw it in the washing machine to restore it to its original pristine condition.
ECO-FRIENDLY & PEOPLE SAFE
We’re committed to creating products that protect people and our environment.
We know you care about the impact of what you buy on people and the planet. That’s why our 100% cotton fabric is coated with a non-toxic, water-based polyurethane that is CPSIA-certified BPA and Phthalate-free. Our fabric also meets the human-ecological requirements of the Standard 100 by OKEO TEX. Our fabric and our products are biodegradable and our packaging is made from recycled materials. We also strive to be a zero-waste company.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Empowering inner city youth through art
10% of our profits support Coyote Central.
Coyote Central’s vision is for Seattle-area adolescents of every background to become creative thinkers and problem-solvers, confident in their capabilities and voice and engaged with their community. IMPWEAR's owner, Tracy, volunteered for years building programs and teaching art in Seattle Public Schools. Coyote is continuing that work, while Tracy builds her own dream.
