Sedna: Super soft carpet launched to save the seas

18 December 2018

Just in time for the holidays, we are delighted to announce our new partnership with Associated Weavers (AW). AW is a European manufacturer of tufted carpet with production plants in Belgium and the Czech Republic and was inspired by Inuit mythology and the legendary Sedna, Queen of the Sea, for its newest product: the soft, luxurious and durable Sedna® carpet which is made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon.

During an exclusive event held earlier this month in Belgium, AW launched its partnership with Healthy Seas as well as the new product line. Giulio Bonazzi, Aquafil  President, was among the speakers at the Sedna® reveal.

“At AW, we aspire to be a leader in the residential carpet business. With Sedna®, we are the first to launch a collection made with super soft ECONYL® yarn made from regenerated waste. We aim to develop innovative products and raise awareness at the same time: ghost nets threatening sea life can be made into sustainable, high-quality carpets. Because we wish to take our contribution to saving marine life yet another step further, we decided to become a partner of Healthy Seas.” ~ Erik Deporte, CEO of Associated Weavers.
