Nature gives us so much to work with – from colors, shapes and patterns to materials to construct everything we can dream of. So isn’t it great when we can find a way to preserve nature by using sustainable materials in our products? We are proud to partner with modulyss®, who has recently designed the Handcraft collection, using high-grade ECONYL® 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from recovered fishing nets and other waste materials that are regenerated through the ECONYL® Regeneration System.
The ECONYL® Regeneration System is a closed-loop process which allows the transformation of nylon waste, such as fishing nets and other discarded materials, into first grade nylon used for the production of sustainable carpet products and other textiles.
As part of their sustainable mission to reduce the Life Cycle Impact of each product, modulyss® decided to join Healthy Seas® as an associate partner member. Healthy Seas® was set up to protect our seas by diving for abandoned fishing nets (known as ghost nets) that remain in the sea for centuries continuing to catch or injure marine life such as fish, dolphins, turtles and marine birds. Healthy Seas® not only recovers the fishing nets but makes sure that they get recycled and regenerated into ECONYL® yarn by Aquafil, Europe’s premier manufacturer of PA 6 carpet fibre.
And modulyss® is showing off their new membership in Heathy Seas with their new collection – Handcraft made with ECONYL® 100% regenerated yarn. The Handcraft Collection invites the outside in with four designs inspired by nature: Moss, Leaf, Grind and Willow. Each style translates subtle patterns and organic hues into carpet tiles that provide a practical covering for commercial spaces.
The first product, Moss, is appropriately named to suggest the inspiration that it resembles. Its multi-level loop construction gives it a distinct organic texture. The second product named Leaf is inspired by the impression of scattered leaves during changing seasons. The final product, Willow mimics the natural tree bark and its natural bends. The organic movement of these designs has been executed to the highest quality and is tested to European standards, covering all NZ requirements for Heavy Commercial Use.
Moss, Leaf and Willow are available in ten colors, while Grind is offered in seven hued greys. The Handcraft collection can be used to create unique spaces that celebrate nature. Moss, Leaf and Willow can be mixed and matched, with Grind offering juxtaposition. The organic movement of these designs has been executed to the highest quality and is tested to European standards, covering all NZ requirements for Heavy Commercial Use.
Get away from the hustle and bustle of your busy workspace and enjoy the peace and quiet of the outdoor experience and rejuvenate yourself while you help preserve nature with The Handcraft Collection by modulyss®, made with 100% regenerated nylon.
