The “Born R2R by Aquafil” initiative aims at engaging Aquafil’s clients in eco-designing the carpets of the future, given that products need to be conceived from the beginning to be fully recyclable at the end of their life. More specifically, Aquafil has been working closely with its clients to produce fully disassemble carpets (some IMO certified) with materials and fibres that are compatible with the ECONYL® regeneration system. This way, at the end of their useful life, carpets can be recycled instead of being disposed to a landfill or sent to incineration. More precisely, the parts made of ECONYL® regenerated nylon will be recovered and recycled into new ECONYL® nylon fibres by Aquafil. This closes the loop and allows the industry to take a step forward toward circularity.

WAYNERR® interior décor panels are produced by a proprietary & patented technology recycling the leather waste. During the process we create a new type of material – macroporous leather, which has a premium look and a soft touch. With top class thermal, noise insulation properties it also has a positive impact in controlling air humidity (microclimate effect). Upon higher air humidity, the excess is collected into the labyrinth structure and later released as vapor when air humidity is low. During this process, the wall’s temperature decreases and helps save energy needed for the air conditioning of the premises.
WAYNERR® panels are dust-free, with extreme long-life durability, highly sustainable and, if not used, they can be recycled again. The WAYNERR® décor panels are easy to attach and maintain. Our technology allows achieving custom designs and textures. The production allows the use of natural colourants too.
