Rohner Textil AG
Climatex® Lifecycle™

Compostable upholstery fabric. Residual scrap utilisation has gone to show that the fabric is biodegradble with all of its chemical constituents. Waste material from weaving can be converted into felt to be subsequently used as non-wovens for upholstery work or as a mulch in gardening.

Large efforts were made to test dyechemicals for ecological safety. Although a mere 16 out of 1600 available dyechemicals lived up to the rigid specs, almost all colorvariations are possible, except black. A great number of environmental awards have been bestowed on it since its market introduction in America in 1995.

Design & Source Productions, Inc.
TerraSkin®

The Silver Certified TerraSkin® is a combination of Mineral Powder (>80% Calcium Carbonate) and a small quantity of non-toxic resin (<20% PE) which acts as a binder to create an environmentally friendly, tree-less paper. TerraSkin® performs like a traditional paper, but it has many unique advantages:

• The production of TerraSkin® requires NO WATER, so the papermaking
process for TerraSkin® incurs no water pollutants.
• The production of TerraSkin® requires NO BLEACH.
• TerraSkin® is water resistant and tear resistant.
• TerraSkin® is not a fiber so it doesn’t absorb ink like regular paper –
consequently 20-30% less ink is required for printing.
• TerraSkin® will degrade back to its source – the powder of stone –
when left out in nature for approximately three to nine months.
• The harvesting of trees is unnecessary when producing TerraSkin®,
thereby safeguarding the natural environment’s beauty and biodiversity.
