Tessutica Launches Marine Plastic Waste-based Recyclable Upholstery Fabrics


Tessutica has announced a new product line in upholstery called Greencare fabrics which are created from pellets that come from marine plastic waste. The fabrics themselves can then be 100% recycled into pellets again.

Greencare is Tessutica’s new collection with 100% recycled and recyclable upholstery fabrics. Greencare is certified under the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) label. Greencare fabrics are engineered with recycled yarns from regular post-consumer PET bottles from the oceans, landfills and upcycled cotton from garments.

Partnership with Seaqual Project
For this, Tessutica partnered with the Seaqual project, which brings plastic waste back into the manufacturing chain. “We are delighted to be part of the few Seaqual-licensed mills in the world today,” says Karl Henderson, General Manager of Tessutica.

One of the major benefits of using recycled polyester yarns is that the production does not require the usage of new petroleum, which significantly reduces our carbon footprint. It also creates 75% less CO2 emission compared to the use of virgin polyester.”

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.
