Recycled Fabrics - Bespoke Range

CurtainStudio are pleased to introduce a range of fabrics within our Bespoke custom range that is made incorporating recycled plastic bottles or recycled polyester industrial yarn (PI).  Our supplier has worked with leading yarn suppliers who have accredited supply sources. In each case the recycling of solid polyester waste products prevents their disposal to land fill and offers considerable energy saving benefits.

 

recycled fabrics

 Woven from Recycled Polyester*


The minimum requirement for the fabric within our range has no less than 40% of recycled polyester that has been incorporated in the fabric weight per lineal metre.

* Fabrics will vary in weight per lineal metre, depending on each design, but are guaranteed that each metre of fabric will use the equivalent of no less than four 750ml plastic bottles each weighing 30gms.

Recycling Saves Energy*

• Recycling offers significant energy savings over manufacturing with virgin materials. 1kg of recycled yarn used in our recycled fabrics conserves approx 100,000 BTU’s* of energy, equivalent to 2 litres of fuel 1.

• Producing new plastic from recycled material uses only two-thirds of the energy required to manufacture plastic from virgin materials 2.

• The energy saved by recycling one plastic drink bottle could power a computer for 25 minutes 3.

Reduces Waste*


The average consumer discards 3 kgs of house-hold waste each day. A high proportion of this waste goes into landfills or oceans. The North Pacific Ocean Gyre is filled with an estimated 4,000,000 tons of plastic. “The equivalent area to the size of Texas, this Gyre has also been dubbed the trash vortex”.4. The average plastic bottle takes approximately 450 – 1000 years to fully biodegrade. Recycling requires far less energy, uses fewer natural resources, and reduces the quantity of waste disposal in landfills and oceans.

Helps Reduce Green House Gases*


In the year 2000, recycling of solid waste prevented the release of 32.9 million metric tons of carbon equivalent, green house gases into the air 1.

Changing Habits*

Consumer demand for recycled products helps our environment by encouraging manufacturers to specify and use recycled materials. Warwick Fabrics is committed to the responsible development of textile products in keeping with consumer demand and preferred choices.
