Fibre manufacturer Trevira has a return program for textiles made from its polyester fibre Trevira CS. It allows the material in the textile to be recovered and reused through mechanical recycling.
The design process according to Svensson
The design team's work process is about developing textile solutions in conscious and innovative ways, where both aesthetic and functional requirements are included.
Leftover textiles are given new life in a modular sofa from Layered
Svensson's ambition is that all textiles produced should come of use. Through collaboration with Layered, leftover upholstery fabric can be given a new life.
What are the major benefits of Möbelfakta READY for the industry?
During the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2023, a dialogue about Möbelfakta READY was arranged at Svensson's stand. The topics covered were the industry's biggest challenges and how architects and interior designers can work with eco-labeling for products.
Svensson first with Möbelfakta's new sustainability label
Svensson is proud to be the first company whose furniture textiles are certified in accordance with the new sustainability label - Möbelfakta READY. The labelling makes it easy to identify products that meet the market's requirements for quality, the environment as well as responsible supply chains.
This year we are using Christmas to create a more sustainable world
A different kind of year has given new perspectives. What happens in the world affects us here in Sweden, and how we act in Sweden affects the rest of the world. This Christmas, we make sure that WaterAid can reach more people with the most important and basic thing of all - clean water and the opportunity for good hygiene.
Unused material becomes a sustainable acoustic solution with BAUX
Our ambition is to ensure that all the material we produce comes to good use. Our collaboration with The Loop Factory and BAUX, means that edge remnants from our production have found a new life.
From residual material to new product
All forms of production results in residual material. Reducing and minimising such material is among our responsibilities as a manufacturer, but it is inevitable that offcuts are created in connection with industrial weaving. We are therefore proud and thrilled to have found a solution to this problem in collaboration with The Loop Factory.
Svensson is part of STEPS, for a more sustainable textiles industry
For us, it goes without saying that we should be working towards a more sustainable textiles industry. That’s why we’re thrilled to be a part of the research programme STEPS, Sustainable Plastics and Transmission Pathways, which is now entering Phase 2.
Putting leftover textiles to good use
As part of our sustainability work, we are involved in TexChain3 which aims to collect up these leftover textiles in order to create a circular economy.
