Herman Miller gets its teeth into Kira corn textiles

Corn is the new actor on the scene in eco fibers. Kira corn fabric represents a beautiful, long-lasting, 100% renewable textile made entirely from corn. Created by the quintessential design innovators at Herman Miller, Kira is available in six earthen colors.

Like all Herman Miller fabrics, Kira can be used with Herman Miller GREENGUARD-certified products, ensuring chemical-free standards. Sustainable production of Kira, fueled with hydroelectric power, results in significantly less greenhouse gases - sustainable and stylish!

As Herman Miller continues on its "Journey toward Sustainability," we can expect more products designed with consideration for their environmental impact. “We contribute to a better world by pursuing sustainability and environmental wisdom. Environmental advocacy is part of our heritage and a responsibility we gladly bear for future generations." -Excerpted from Herman Miller's Corporate Values Statement
