ECO AGE – How Aquafil Became the Green Carpet Provider of Choice
If you thought this year’s Disney remake of Aladdin boasted the most magic carpet you’d see this year – think again. We take a look at how Aquafil has transformed ocean and carpet waste into the glamorous event entrance of choice.
Italian manufacturer Aquafil has proven that green really is the new red after creating a series of spectacular entrance carpets for star-studded events using ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon – a fibre that is made entirely from waste taken from oceans and landfills.
Since last year’s glittering Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia, in Milan, where guests arriving at Teatro alla Scala entered via a green ECONYL® carpet featuring the hummingbird motif of the event, designed by creative director Hamish Bowles, Aquafil has continued to roll out the green carpet for a number of glittering A-list events – from the CFDA awards in New York, to Chopard’s new boutique opening in London and Cannes Love Party.
