Eco-Carpet Means Eco-Friendly Living!

The term 'regeneration' is more than just another buzzword and refers to the act of restoring something to its original and purest state. In the textile industry, Econyl® nylon is embracing this concept and is fast becoming the preferred choice for eco carpets in Australia.

Carpet Court are proud to introduce Econyl® regenerative nylon into our quality carpet range as a more eco-friendly and conscious solution to flooring. Econyl® nylon is made from nylon waste products, including old carpet scraps and fishing nets, which would otherwise pollute the environment.

As a regenerative nylon, it can be recycled and reused an infinite amount of times without sacrificing its quality or performance level. This makes Econyl® yarn an ideal choice for customers who care about where their carpet comes from and what impact it will have on the planet when it's gone.

Benefits of Eco Carpet

Eco carpets are not only kinder to the planet and reduce environmental pollution, they also come with several benefits to transform your interiors and elevate your quality of living. Econyl® regenerative nylon also boasts these amazing properties:

  1. Durability - Econyl® is a polyamide which makes it extremely durable and able to withstand heavy foot traffic, cleaning, and wear and tear with fibres retaining their shape, bounce, and lush texture.
  2. Stain Resistance - Econyl® fibres resist stains that come from busy family living.
  3. Fade Resistance - With UV resistant properties, Econyl® yarn will remain rich and like new for many years, if cared for properly.
  4. Colour-Fast Fibres - Dye is used throughout the yarn, rather than just sitting on top of the fibres, which prevents colour bleeding and retains colour vibrancy over time.
  5. Allergen-Friendly - Econyl® nylon is certified to have low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCS) which improves air quality and is great for homes with kids or those with allergies and respiratory conditions.

How ECONYL® Carpet is Made

Econyl® nylon is made by recycling synthetic nylon waste that would otherwise end up in landfill where it would take hundreds of years to break down. These products include fishing nets, old carpet scraps, waste fabric, and more. A 6-step construction method is employed to make the final product. First, the waste is collected, cleaned, and shredded. The nylon is then extracted, polymerised, and transformed into yarns and polymers for the textile and fashion industries.

Traditionally, making nylon involves using huge amounts of water and producing significant nitrous oxide emissions, which are 10 times more toxic than carbon dioxide. This new method seeks to reduce the need to make new nylon by using an environmentally friendly process to recycle and recreate quality virgin nylon from existing nylon waste products indefinitely. 

Buying Eco-Friendly Carpet

When you choose Econyl® carpet, you're buying a high-quality, long-lasting product that is better for the environment. For every 10,000 tonnes of Econyl® yarn that is made, we can save up to 70,000 tonnes of crude oil and 95% emissions from harming the Earth when compared to the production process of regular carpets. 

Used from Recycled Materials

Econyl® yarn is made from recycled nylon waste that was polluting the Earth, such as nylon fishing nets, industrial plastics, fabric scraps, and old carpet flooring. Once the waste has been cleaned and all nylon extracted, it passes through an advanced regenerative and purification process that restores it back to its original virgin quality.

When an Econyl® nylon product no longer has a use for the customer, it can be put back into step 1 of the process and be recycled again and again without ever losing its pure quality and durability. 

Soft Touch Range

For Econyl® carpet that's not only extremely durable but also soft to touch, explore Carpet Court's Premium Soft range. Both the Source and Origins collection offer a cut-pile carpet with twisted fibres for a luxuriantly soft and dense texture that resists long-term crushing even in high traffic areas of the home, such as living rooms and hallways. With allergen filtering, stain, and UV resistant properties, these carpets are available in 11 classic shades to fit beautifully into any elegant interior.

Wear Resistant 

If you live in a home with a lot of foot traffic, you need an eco carpet that can stand up to some wear and tear. Econyl® nylon is strong and durable with dense fibres that bounce back into shape and maintain their lush quality even against heavy usage and years of cleaning and maintenance.

Various Dye Colour Options

Our solution dyed regenerative nylon is available in a stunning range of colours to suit any type of home or business interior. Choose from:

  1. Classic shades
  2. Soft neutrals
  3. Contemporary hues in light, intermediate, and dark that compliment any interior space and pair beautifully with your choice of hard flooring

It's also UV resistant which makes it a perfect choice for any sunny room and can withstand many years of cleaning, vacuuming, and maintenance without the colours fading or bleeding like other carpets may do.
