Sustainability

Today, most people spend 90% of their time indoors, so designing products with health and wellbeing in mind has never been more important.

To ensure this we have a take back program that’s called ReStart, where we collect used carpets from our clients. Also we have developed an innovation separation technique, called Refinity®, which makes it possible to separate the yarn from the backing, producing two main material streams: the yarn, which is sent back to our suppliers for recycling and the backing which can each be safely recycled in Desso’s own production process.

We transform used fishing nets into new carpets. Coral and fishes are often tangled in abandoned fishing nets. By retrieving and re-using these fishing nets we aim to contribute in saving the sea life and also reduce scarcity of raw materials.

The Essentials collection contains ECONYL® yarn - a 100% regenerated nylon made from recovered waste materials such as carpet yarn and discarded fishing nets.

We upcycle chalk from local drinking water companies to produce carpets.

For the Essentials collection, the carpets have an EcoBase™ backing, which contains upcycled and re-engineered calcium carbonate (chalk), which is sourced from local drinking water companies. By using the chalk – a waste product – we avoid wearing down the earth’s resources.

The backing is 100% recyclable in Desso's own production process. The products in this range are certified Cradle to Cradle® Silver, ensuring that the products contribute positively to the environment, human health and are designed to be recycled in a non-toxic closed loop.
