Leafy Paradise (Food Safe)


Sewing Bee Fabrics And Haberdashery Shop


This leafy Polyurethane Laminate Fabric (also known as PUL fabric) brings a touch of tropical fun to this waterproof fabric.

With a deep dark navy background like a twilight sky, orange flowers and green foliage splash across this fabric like a lush jungle forest. This simple colour scheme brings a touch of elegance and sophistication to the pattern.

As you look closer at the design, you’ll find that there are 2 types of leaves both coloured with the same energetic green hues. One unfolds like a graceful fan, with strands of leaf spraying out from a central point at the end of the stem. Its delicate fronds spreading outward, as if reaching between the other leaves for the sunlight filtering through the dense canopy above.

The second type of leaf unfurls all its little leaflets along a long vein in a feathery pattern. Sprouting in matching pairs along the vein, their symmetry adds a feeling of ordered precision amongst the random spread of leaves.

Popping out in vibrant bursts of colour are bright orange bird of paradise flowers in full bloom. Their firey petals add a dramatic and eye-catching touch to the pattern. Originating in Africa, these brightly coloured blooms are often considered to be a symbol of majesty and exotic beauty.

This polyurethane laminate (PUL), combines a lightweight softness with breathability and a slight stretch while being waterproof too. These properties make it perfect for a wide range of sewing projects.

Whether you’re making washable sanitary/continence/nappy items, rainproof hiking trousers or all weather coats, baby change mats, or adding a functional lining to a stylish bag, this PUL fabric is a great choice.

The food-safe certification that this polyurethane laminate fabric holds means that it has been tested against stringent safety standards to ensure that it is safe for contact with food. This opens up a whole other range of possible sewing projects like reusable snack bags, lunch bags, food storage sacks, and reusable food wraps. Please note that direct contact with hot food or exposure to heat sources like ovens or microwaves should be avoided to prevent damage to the fabric.

Measuring approximately 150cm (59 inches) in width, this leafy PUL fabric is available by the metre or half metre. Multiple quantities will be sent as a continuous length. For smaller projects, we also offer a fat quarter size, measuring approximately 50cm x 50cm (19 ½ x 19 ½ inches).

To prolong the life and vibrant colours of this waterproof fabric, we recommend washing it at 30°C or below. Please also be aware that PUL fabrics may have a wide selvedge, and the lamination might not cover the entire selvedge edge or may overlap it. This does not affect the usable width of the fabric.
