Ferm LIVING has designed a lovely out of doors textile sequence, which is made fully from recycled plastic bottles. Carpets, pillows and mats made from plastic should not actually related to textiles which are delicate and nice to the contact. The “Approach” sequence from ferm LIVING proves the alternative. The road isn’t solely sensible, straightforward to wash and appropriate for out of doors use, it additionally feels very nice and delicate.
The method of changing plastic bottles into yarn that may be made right into a sequence like “Approach” takes place in 5 steps: amassing PET bottles, crushing the bottles and urgent them into compact bales, shredding the compressed bottles into PET flakes, processing the flakes in carding machines and at last spinning the fabric into yarn.
The “Approach” sequence contains a big carpet that I might like to have on our terrace, a runner, a mat and a big pillow.
