Closing the loop
Our Tessera carpet tiles are not only synonymous with quality, we are always looking for ways to improve our production processes and product constructions to make our tiles more sustainable.
50% Recycled content
By challenging the way tufted carpet tiles are made, our UK-produced Tessera tiles now boast over 50% recycled content.
Reduced tile waste by 80%
We use innovative ultrasonic blades to cut our carpet tiles, which reduces tile waste by 80% compared to the standard technique. And our new extruder creates a closed loop process, ensuring that the little waste we generate is recycled back into the product.
Reduced amount of virgin materials
We are reducing the amount of virgin materials we use. For example, instead of throwing away yarn ends, we rewind them and tuft them into our Tessera range. We even have several ranges made with up to 100% ECONYL® regenerated yarn.
Quick and easy to clean
Our carpet tiles are quick and easy to clean using a system called Dry Fusion, which uses heat, a little water and natural, organic cleaners. So you can use less water and fewer chemicals without compromising appearance.
Reduced fitting waste
Following Green Design principles, our innovative random-lay carpet tiles reduce fitting waste to less than 2%. And any Tessera fitting waste can be collected for recycling at our plant near Preston, Lancashire, where it is processed back into new carpet tiles.
Carpet recycling UK
As a founder member of Carpet recycling UK, we are also working to ensure that at the end of life our carpet tiles can be recycled or reused.
