The circular economy is the future
Everyone knows about fabrics made from recycled plastic, but couldn’t wool also be recycled? This is exactly what Margrethe Odgaard asked herself and the result was a noble virgin sheep’s wool fabric, which is characterized by its durability and soft surface. Consisting of 45% recycled wool, the upholstery fabric is partly made from the by-products of Kvadrat’s yarn spinning mills, in line with our sustainability concept, and finds a whole new area of application on our ANGELCABs. The idea behind Re-wool was to create an honest and at the same time environmentally friendly textile with a poetic texture and extraordinary depth of color. The designer has also succeeded in this. This particularly efficient textile also combines aesthetics and sustainability with the outstanding temperature-regulating properties of virgin sheep’s wool that we value so highly. In the cool season virgin sheep’s wool keeps you warm and on hot summer days it provides a pleasantly fresh climate in the stroller due to its optimal moisture management. It is also antibacterial and self-cleaning, so dirt can simply be brushed off after drying.
