Case Study

Four industry leaders join forces to reduce their environmental impact

Goal:
Reduce the environmental impact of the textile industry with a “closed-loop” system that converts textile waste back into premium quality fiber and yarn.
Challenge:
Conventional furniture industry recycling programs downcycle cutting waste into lower-grade material for use as carpet underlay or backing. Implementing a closed-loop system meant overcoming logistical hurdles related to waste collection and segregation and a lack of recycling facilities.
Solution:
Four leading players in the furniture textile supply chain pooled their resources to tackle obstacles in recycling at every level of the production process—from product design and marketing through to fabric recycling and the role workers play in the cutting room.
Modern and contemporary designs featuring sophisticated patterns and beautiful woven constructions—that's our aim and what our partners have come to expect from Victor.
Lisa Olson-Wong, Design Director

The initiative is an inspiring example of how supply chain partners can work together for change. Each partner brought something to the table: waste segregation and storage know-how from Steelcase, cutting-edge textile recycling technology from Unifi, manufacturing capabilities from Victor, and experience in designing fabrics for recyclability from Designtex. The result? A sustainable solution that reduces environmental impacts within the industry by converting waste into recycled product equal in quality to the original textile. The first product born of this partnership is Loop 2 Loop, an upholstery fabric created by Designtex, woven by Victor from Unifi yarn, and used on Steelcase furniture.

Loop 2 Loop is designed and manufactured for "multicyling", which means that the fiber will retain its integrity through multiple lifetimes. The product retains all of the qualities of the original fabric, even though it’s made from recycled materials.
