In 1999 Earthshade Natural Window Fashions pioneered green and sustainable window fashions with the worlds first collection of non-toxic shades. Today called HappyShades, this collection remains the only chemical free window treatments in the world. As a bonus; testing completed in 2011 has confirmed the fabrics are so pure they are backyard compostable at the end of their service life!
