Latest collection announced by Alternative Flooring

ALTERNATIVE Flooring says it’s delighted to introduce its latest collection, Anywhere Ca-rPET. Says the company: ‘Crafted using recycled PET yarn, also known as rPET, Anywhere Ca-rPET is made entirely from recycled plastic bottles, a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional yarn.

The process involves collecting, sorting, cleaning, and melting the bottles to create fibres that are spun into yarn.

‘Better yet, Anywhere Ca-rPET boasts a softly spun texture that feels great underfoot. This innovative collection is a part of the ‘Anywhere’ range of synthetic carpets, rugs and runners that are versatile, available in 4 and 5m widths and suitable for use both indoors and outdoors.

‘By mimicking the beauty and natural appearance of sisal, rPET yarn produces carpets with exceptional longevity, leading to less frequent replacements and lower resource usage. In addition to its practical benefits, repurposing plastic waste into aesthetically pleasing floorcoverings minimises environmental harm.’

The company continues: ‘With 50 bottles needed to produce 1kg of yarn, and 1kg of yarn being enough for 1sq m of Anywhere Ca-rPET, this innovative solution is efficient and sustainable.

Durable and long-lasting, Anywhere Ca-rPET is the ideal choice for high-traffic areas or made as a stylish yet functional rug and runner, plus, there’s no need to worry about accidental spills, as it’s also stain-resistant.’

It adds: ‘Stylish and suitable for indoor and outdoor use, Anywhere Ca-rPET although hard-wearing remains soft and tactile underfoot, allowing for greater design flexibility for eco-conscious homeowners and businesses. Furthermore, Anywhere Ca-rPET’s rugs with a stylish Anywhere border have a unique ability to withstand the elements, allowing them to remain outside throughout the year without the need for stowing away, unlike many other outdoor rugs.’

Lorna Haigh, creative director comments: ‘We’re absolutely thrilled to be launching the Anywhere Ca-rPET range, marking a significant step forward in our commitment to sustainability and innovation. This pioneering manufacturing process, which harnesses the usage of recycled plastic, highlights our dedication not just to crafting eco-conscious flooring solutions, but to fundamentally transforming our relationship with the planet.

‘By choosing Anywhere Ca-rPET, our customers are not just selecting a product; they are joining us on a journey towards a more sustainable future. Together, we are laying the groundwork for change, one floor at a time.’
