Furniture Upholstery from Recycled Waste

Tessutica, which belongs to Belgium-based Beaulieu International Group (B.I.G.), has announced a new product line: “Greencare” is the company’s new collection with 100 percent recycled and recyclable upholstery fabrics. After use, the fabrics can be recycled into pellets again.

According to the information, “Greencare” is certified under the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) label. The fabrics base on recycled yarns from regular post-consumer PET bottles from the oceans, landfills and upcycled cotton from garments. For this, Tessutica partnered with the Seaqual project, which brings plastic waste back into the manufacturing chain. With growing demands for sustainability within the business world as well as from end-consumers, Tessutica felt it was the right choice to offer a product line that comes with a full guarantee of environmental consciousness.
