Cartersville, Ga.—Masland Contract launched Crafted, a soft surface collection executed with Econyl regenerated nylon. The collection celebrates skillful artistry and innovative materials with an intentional focus on creating products that work together in a holistic approach.
Masland Contract brought the line to life with the high-performing properties of Econyl nylon, harmonizing the abstract patterns, versatile colors, and captivating textures that make this contemporary carpet tile collection so unique.
“This collection captures a strong sustainable story and plays with color and texture to embody the artisan spirit said Aquafil Chairman Giulio Bonazzi. “It was wonderful to see how [Masland Carpet] tactfully used Econyl to bring Crafted to life.”
Econyl is made from waste that would otherwise pollute the world’s landfills and oceans — including fishnets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic. Using Econyl regenerated nylon reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with material generated from oil, according to the company. The sustainable yarn maintains the same purity and strength characteristics of nylon coming from fossil material.
Combined with the Sustaina backing system, Crafted has a total recycled content of 82% with 26% post-consumer and 56% pre-consumer. In addition, there are no Red-List components used in the manufacturing of the products.
“The Crafted launch is very exciting for the entire Masland Contract team,” said Suzanne Zurfluh, marketing director at Atlas | Masland Contract. “This launch marks another step in our continued efforts to lead a sustainable business. With this collection, we proved it’s possible to create beautiful, high-performing carpet without depleting the earth’s resources.”
