Ty is a simple plastic shower curtain made from Tyvek — designed and thoughtfully packaged by Seattle design collective Grain Design. While Tyvek shower curtains are nothing new — they are ideally PVC-free, non-toxic, recyclable, machine washable and mold and mildew resistant — Grain Design's approach to a pre-packaged, customizable and affordable "DIY Edition" might be the hook to make Tyvek more attractive to consumers.
From Grain Design:
"Ty is a simple #2 plastic shower curtain. Unlike other shower curtains made of vinyl, Ty will not off-gas in your home. Also unlike vinyl, Ty breathes — making it less likely to grow gross mold and mildew. Ty is stronger than vinyl and will last a very long time, then it can be recycled."
