VerdEco, is sustainable fabric, which is available in 35 shades with a rich mix of melange colours. Not only is VerdEco truly sustainable, it’s made from 100 per cent recycled material and uses zero water in its production.
The collection is produced from pre-consumer textile waste; by-product materials from fibre, yarn and woven fabric. These waste products are collected and mechanically recycled into granules, which are then re-spun into yarn, re-woven, quality checked and shipped to us in recycled packaging. Crucially, the production process uses zero water, with new yarn colours being carefully composed from recycled fibre and checked for consistency by the mill.
As a water-free fabric, VerdEco is of course chemical-free too and uses significantly less energy in its production than conventional upholstery fabric. On average, 250 litres of water is saved when upholstering a three-seat sofa in Verd Eco. This figure represents the normal average quantity of water consumed by upholstery fabric used to cover a standard three-seater. At scale, the water and energy savings available by choosing VerdEco are significant for furniture manufacturers and specifiers to say the least.
In terms of its performance features, VerdEco is crib 5 and IMO inherent, with no back-coating needed to achieve these fire retardant standards.
However, in a commitment to keeping the collection truly sustainable, VerdEco is not treated fabric as most other soft fabric in Agua range, so it’s worth keeping in mind that VerdEco isn’t waterproof, stain resistant or antimicrobial, as with the core Agua collection.
VerdEco, quite apart from its recycled and water-free credentials, is a good-looking, practical and highly durable fabric that fits neatly into Agua ever-growing range.
