It takes a radical regeneration and puriﬁcation process to turn waste into ﬁrst quality carpet, and that’s exactly how ECONYL® carpet ﬁber begins—by rescuing waste nylon, such as old ﬁshing nets, from our planet’s oceans and discarded carpet destined for landﬁll. The reclaimed nylon is cleaned, sorted, recycled back to its original purity, and reborn as ECONYL® ﬁber.
Imagine, regenerated nylon that’s exactly the same as virgin nylon. Beautiful, hard-wearing, and inﬁnitely recyclable.
As well as being a solution on waste, ECONYL® regenerated nylon is also better when it comes to climate change. It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with the material from oil. For every square yard of Crafted carpet made with ECONYL® ﬁber, you save roughly 8.3 lb CO2 eq emissions which is equal to driving 20 miles in a car.
