Edmund Bell launches first RECYCLED fabric LINK
The impact of our business and our products on the environment is extremely important to us and we are committed to working towards a sustainable future. Part of that includes producing fabrics that are made using recycled materials.
Humans use around 1.2 million plastic bottles per minute. Only 56% are recycled.
LINK is made using inherent FR recycled polyester REPREVE® yarns – the world’s leading brand of recycled performance fibre. REPREVE® high-quality fibres are made from 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste. Using recycled instead of virgin polyester produces fewer carbon emissions and gives plastic bottles a second life, keeping them out of oceans and landfills.
With a sculptured grid like structure and a super modernist architectural look, LINK is made using 31% recycled REPREVE® yarns and is woven at 320cm, making it perfect for beautifully tall windows wanting some privacy without blocking any light.
Colour is key here with a sensible selection of natural and organic tones – chalk, linen and pebble, easy to use and perfect in office, hotel or healthcare settings.
So how does it work?
1. Post-consumer plastic bottles are collected
2. Bottles are washed and chopped into flake
3. Flake is melted and formed into resin
4. Resin is extruded and textured through a proprietary process to form REPREVE
5. Final product is made
