As Mode fabrics can be used for interior window coverings, they have been tested and certified as low chemical-emitting products.

  • Lead-free – Outlook and Mode fabrics manufactured by Phifer Incorporated are lead free. These fabrics pass some of the most stringent US Standards for heavy metals such as US Product Safety Commission Section 101 and ANSI/WCMA A100. 1-2007 for lead content.
