World of Rugs
promises to GO GREEN with rugs & pads...
At Every Opportunity!
Rugs made with Type 6 nylon (nylon 6), are the only post-consumer fiber capable of being recycled into new carpet and area rug fiber repeatedly. Shaw's Evergreen Nylon Recycling facility uses patented technology that converts Type 6 nylon fiber from carpet and area rugs and recycles it back to its original material, caprolactam, which is the building block of Type 6 nylon fiber. This "cradle-to-cradle" process allows Type 6 nylon fibers to be recycled over and over again without the loss of any aestheticor performance properties. This recycling program is available in the Phoenix area, for information please contact us at 480-419-6119.
CRI Green Label
CRI Green Label
Today, indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important environmental consideration, especially since we spend approximately 90 percent of our time indoors. In 1992, CRI launched its Green Label program to test carpet, cushions and adhesives to help specifiers identify products with very low emissions of VOCs. CRI has recently launched its next series of improvements called Green Label Plus for area rugs, carpet and adhesives. This enhanced program sets an even higher standard for IAQ and ensures that customers are purchasing the very lowest emitting products on the market. Using scientifically established standards, the Green Label Plus program symbolizes the carpet industry’s commitment to a better environment for living, working, learning and healing.
We are pleased to introduce rugs featuring ClearTouch® BCF PET with recycled content. ClearTouch is a continuous filament fiber that offers the inherent attributes of polyester as well as exceptional performance characteristics, such as excellent appearance retention and long-term wear. An added benefit of the new fiber is recycled content.
The significance of the new continuous filament ClearTouch is the result of a patent-pending process. ClearTouch styles are rated for appearance retention according to the CRI industry scale.
The new ClearTouch yarn system also boasts exceptional softness. The extra softness is the result of the yarn's fine-denier filaments. The smaller denier produces the supple touch, while advanced yarn engineering, including optimum twist levels, accounts for the superior durability.
Of special note is that millions of pounds of soft drink and water bottles are now used to manufacture BCF ClearTouch carpets. This patent-pending innovation is unique to standard manufacturing processes of PET BCF fibers.
