We're better together
Niaga® partner BekaertDeslee introduces fully circular mattress cover
Today, during Interzum 2023 at Koelnmesse, BekaertDeslee proudly introduces an all-polyester, recyclable mattress cover in cooperation with Niaga® and TripleR. BekaertDeslee is the world’s leading specialist in the development and manufacturing of mattress textiles, mattress covers and on trend sleep solutions, Made from just one single clean and infinite material, the cover can be recycled into same or comparable products at end of use. In this way safeguarding materials for generations to come.
From ideation to innovative circular mattress cover
Starting with the ambition to move towards sustainable product offerings, BekaertDeslee took a courageous step when they committed to the Niaga® product design principles during the ISPA Sustainability Conference at the end of last year. Their ambition was to create a groundbreaking all-polyester mattress cover.
Based on a so-called letter of intent, they quickly moved forward, partnering with Niaga® to design the cover and have it tested and approved by material experts regarding its recyclability.
With the introduction of their 100% polyester mattress cover made for circularity, BekaertDeslee underlines the power of ‘better together’. Using the Niaga® tag on their mattress cover products provides the ingredient transparency needed for reusing and recycling materials into new, highest quality mattresses or textiles. The QR label on the Niaga® tag, which is unique per cover, has been made possible by TripleR. Enabling digital identification at item level, it keeps designers, manufacturers, retailers, consumers, collectors, dismantlers and recyclers updated on a product throughout its lifetime.
”Sustainability for us is no longer a choice. And we need to do even more if we want to create a better tomorrow. Circularity is what we are aiming for. But to achieve this, we need to work together in the value chain. Our successful collaboration with Niaga® and TripleR has set us on the road to making a real difference in managing, reusing and recycling materials.”
