True adds three post-consumer recycled fabric patterns to Teknit

17
Jun '09
True Textiles Inc., a commercial fabrics industry leader well-known for its commitment to sustainable manufacturing practices and products announced the launch of three new, post-consumer recycled polyester Teknit fabric patterns. Teknit is a unique knitting process that produces dimensional form fitting fabric covers and suspension parts that improve the ergonomics, comfort and design of a chair. The patterns- Dot, Dash and Ditto, will be distributed under the Guilford of Maine brand and are part of the company's Terratex line.

Introduced in 1995, Terratex designates fabrics that are made from 100% recycled or bio-based material using increasingly sustainable manufacturing practices to produce a high quality product that is recyclable at the end of its useful life.

The patterns- primarily for use in office seating- will be unveiled at NeoCon 2009 on June 15-17, 2009 in showroom 1033A of Chicago's Merchandise Mart. The introduction is part of True Textiles on-going commitment to providing increasingly sustainable products to the commercial interiors market.

“The addition of post-consumer recycled yarns to the Teknit offering only strengthens the sustainability story of this capability” explained Rob Harper, senior vice president of sales and marketing for True Textiles, Inc. “Because each piece is “knit to size” and no cutting is involved, this process is already considerably easier on the environment since no waste is produced.”

The three new patterns are made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester yarns, and the materials undergo True Textiles exclusive TerraCHECK dye and chemical protocol. TerraCHECK is a science-based process for screening the dyes and chemicals used to produce Terratex fabrics.
