The future is circular
At AW we are increasingly using recycled materials to manufacture our carpets. By giving materials a new life, we not only reduce the amount of waste, we also take an important step in reducing our carbon footprint. Indeed, the use of virgin raw materials causes considerably greater CO2 emissions than the reuse of existing ones. In Sedna carpet you will find recycled materials in both the pile and the backing.
For the carpet pile of the Sedna® collection we have carefully selected Econyl® yarn. This is a regenerated polyamide that not only feels exceptionally soft but is also gentle on the environment. Only polyamide waste is used in the production of Econyl®, such as old carpets, production waste and fishing nets left behind in the sea. These so-called ghost nets are life-threatening traps for marine animals that get caught in them. By surfacing the nets and regenerating them into polyamide yarn through a sophisticated chemical process, many animals are saved.
