Recycled felt

The industry makes cleaning rags, insulating material for the car industry and moving blankets from depreciated textile. But we thought this could be done differently and developed our design felt in 2014. Everyone in the chain thought we were crazy. How can you create a valuable design product from discarded clothing?

Features at a glance
 

Thickness

The thickness of our felt is about 2.5 mm. However, because it is recycled material, it cannot be completely uniform; deviations in certain places are possible within a margin of a maximum of 20%.

 

Fire resistant

We can impregnate our felt for fire resistance. After treatment it is possible to receive a certificate of treatment. The impregnated material can be classified as flame retardant in the sense of the Dutch standard NEN EN ISO 6941 (Tnaflame < 15 s, Tafterglow < 60 s). This means that it can be used anywhere without any problems according to the Building Decree.

 

Operations

We can also do all kinds of processing in our workshops, such as lasering, punching and printing.
 

Maintenance

Our felt can be easily cleaned by vacuuming. Do not use water and do not rub. If water has gotten on the felt, wait for it to dry completely before vacuuming.

Our felt colors

All our felt colors are made from recycled textiles. For example, we save water and CO2 by recycling textiles into beautiful felt. The colors and products may differ slightly from the picture, because they are sorted textiles.

Thunder Grey

Thunder Grey

Fixed range & in stock Our darkest gray felt is anything but a gray mouse. In a flash, it sets any design ablaze. The dark tones reinforce each other to form a sharp, firm and comfortable company. Made of dark gray consumer clothing, which is no longer wearable, but has a powerful impact in this new form.

Cloud Grey

Cloud Grey

Fixed range & in stock Hold this felt high above your head in the air. A light gray cloud appears. If you look closely, you can see the various light gray chips forming an airy whole. Cuddly, light-footed and made from consumer textiles freshly rescued from incinerators. It is not surprising that we are over the moon with this felt color.

Chalkboard Black

Chalkboard Black

Fixed range & in stock The black color has been given to the felt because it is made from assorted recycled black fashion items from consumers. Clothing collected from the mountain that comes out of the textile containers, only the black items have been used for this felt. This gives your worn little black dress a second life.

Defence Green & Defence Desert

Defence Green & Defence Desert

Fixed range & in stock We currently have two colors of Defense felt. It got its recognizable green color because the felt is made from the old army uniforms of the army. The felt is moss green and fits perfectly with the green revolution in offices! In addition, we have fiberized the Desert clothing into a beautiful sand-colored felt. For a calm interior and easy to combine with other colours.

Care White

Care White

In stock The white color, with a hint of baby blue and baby pink, has seen many hours of special care. White hospital uniforms with color accents of collars, cuffs, trims in blue, pink, green and lilac. They have provided care throughout the Netherlands to everyone who desperately needed it. And now this product is serving you. Be careful with it, because what is white must of course remain beautifully white. This felt color contains little to no animal products such as wool.

Heineken

Heineken

Out of Stock The well-known beer! We have made felt from the old work clothes, which has become a beautiful subtle grey/green. Sometimes with a hint of red, as you would expect. Truly a favorite among the colours. Limited Edition and only available in select products.

Brisk Blend

Brisk Blend

Out of Stock The gray/pink color has been given to the felt because it is made from unsorted recycled consumer clothing. That is why you see the character of the different types of clothing in the felt. Sometimes you see a piece of an old sweater, a glimmer of a torn party dress or maybe a piece of your own jeans that you put in the textile container earlier.

Efteling Fairy Blue

Power Green

Power Green

IKEA Textile & Coworker

IKEA Textile & Coworker

Recycled felt from your company clothing?

In our i-did Factory we can recycle your old company clothing into felt in which the origin of the clothing can be seen. Whether these are small or very large quantities. To turn that felt into beautiful, new products for your company!

For example, we can produce acoustic wall panels or other interior products. It is also possible to make laptop covers, bags and (home) accessories from the felt. So you can even have business or employee gifts made from your own company clothing. Then the circle is round, isn't it?
