Kvadrat Weaving, our Dutch production entity located in Winterswijk, specialises in creating high-quality curtains and upholstery textiles crafted from polyester and increasingly recycled polyester materials.
In 2022, Kvadrat Weaving initiated the EU Ecolabel certification process for more polyester products and entered a partnership to recycle its production waste into new recycled textile products. This move reflects our commitment to sustainability, as we strive to lower our carbon footprint. The distinction between recycled and virgin polyester lies in their origins. Recycled polyester primarily stems from existing PET streams, sourced from Asia and southern Europe, while virgin polyester is derived from crude oil through chemical processes.
Most of our recycled polyester products upcycle post-consumer plastic bottles into high-quality textiles. They have significantly reduced the environmental impact by reusing waste materials, thereby decreasing landfill waste and curbing carbon emissions. Moreover, using recycled polyester offers the potential for repeated recyclability, creating a sustainable cycle by continually reusing recycled polyester.
