Dezeen Showroom: textile brand Carnegie Fabrics has released a collection of outdoor bio-based upholstery fabrics named Outdoor Biobased Xorel, which is made from sugar cane.

"Sourced from rapidly renewable sugar cane, the material has a significantly lower environmental footprint than any fossil fuel-derived product," said Carnegie Fabrics.

"Sugar cane also has a lower carbon footprint than many other bio-based sources, such as beet or corn."

The use of sugar cane in the collection gives the textiles durable and antibacterial properties, making them easy to clean and resistant to fading and stains without the need for synthetic treatments.
