Liang & Eimil unveils its collection crafted from recycled fabric • Hotel Designs


As part of its dedication to reducing environmental impact, Liang & Eimil has integrated recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) fabric, commonly known as RPET, into its upholstered furniture line. RPET fabric is derived from recycled PET plastic, primarily sourced from discarded beverage bottles, which undergoes a meticulous process of collection, cleaning and transformation into fibres. This eco-friendly approach not only repurposes waste but also significantly reduces the demand for new plastic production, minimises waste in landfills and lowers the overall carbon footprint associated with manufacturing.

The adoption of RPET fabrics for this collection, not only enhances sustainability efforts but also significantly contributes to environmental conservation. This innovative approach reduces CO2 emissions by approximately 80 per cent and conserves around 80 per cent of energy compared to conventional polyester production methods. Building upon the brands prior commitment to sustainability, which includes the sourcing of FSC certified wood for their furniture, Liang & Eimil remains steadfast in its dedication to eco-friendly practices. Moreover, the brand prioritises suppliers who share its values and commitment to sustainability, ensuring a cohesive approach to environmental responsibility throughout their supply chain.
