Woven recycled digitally printed polyester rug manufactured using a sustainable process.
Our fast-paced day-to-day lifestyle has disconnected us from the intrinsic value of the objects around us and how they were created.
The challenge is to find a sustainable process by using recycled materials, optimising the manufacturing process and extending the whole life cycle valuing the human and material resources that are involved in rug manufacturing to make the consumer more conscious of the processes involved.
Revitalise traditional rug manufacturing with a new approach introducing a circular business model creating a 100% recycled polyester rug from plastic bottles. The entire rug will be made from a single material, simplifying its manufacture and waste management. Production will be more sustainable, avoiding dyeing and using instead digital printing to obtain a unique product for a unique space.
With the help of new digital printing equipment, thepartnership will:
1- Introduce colour into a textile with greater thickness.
2- Use nontoxic inks.
3- Excellent performance (outdoor).
4- Faster production.
This combination of material and process will standardise production, minimise stock and simplify distribution.
