No other textile has the iconic status of denim, the most worn fabric of all times. Inspired by the diversity of the authentic garment, Desso, a Tarkett company, has launched a new carpet tile called Jeans. Desso is constantly looking for honest and distinctive solutions to the need for creative and sustainable carpet designs. The creative and dynamic Jeans range enables designers and architects to create a characteristic look in an interior suited for a more informal look. Jeans comes standard with an EcoBase™ backing that is 100% recyclable in Desso’s own production process. In addition, it contains ECONYL® yarn – a 100% regenerated nylon made from recovered waste materials such as discarded fishing nets and yarn waste from Desso’s own Refinity® recycling facility.

Tarkett has sourced PA6 and ECONYL® regenerated nylon from Aquafil for more than a decade and uses ECONYL® yarn in its Desso AirMaster carpet tiles, for example. Now, […]
