The CARTER lounge chair intends to use recycled polyester or PET bottles to mimic the fabric appearance of velvet.
The materials recycled to produce the upholstery can originate from:
Recycled PET Bottles - Displayed by Pentatonic in their various projects.
Recycled Ocean Plastic - Such as the Seaqual fabric from Textil Santanderina.
Recycled Polyester - Produced by suppliers such as Texstyle.
Today's sustainable fabric choices are broad & new solutions are increasingly appearing on the market. A variety of sustainable options exist. However, we need more implementation & investment across the industry to drive the price point of these textiles down to become more competitive with traditional fabrics.
