“As a natural product wool remains well-liked. It can regulate in different temperatures, keeping warmer in winter and cooler in summer, unlike synthetic nylon that may feel damp/cooler to the touch in humid climates. Wool is naturally non-allergenic making it popular with asthma sufferers. It is also made from 100% sustainable sources and has slightly better insulation properties and fire resistance.
Terence says Cavelier Bremworth now have an SDN carpet that is made from recycled fibres, offering the more conscious consumer a sustainable choice in synthetics.
You can read about Siren and Valour below.
“At the end of the day both wool and SDN are excellent options” says Terence.
“The most important thing is that you choose the right one for your home. When visiting a retailer, bring a checklist of what you are looking for, and if you want a synthetic product, ask for one that’s solution-dyed because of its superior qualities over a standard nylon.”
To make it a little easier Cavalier Bremworth provides customers with a step-by-step buying guide, including an in-store checklist, to help you on your way. It talks you through the areas you should consider when thinking about a new carpet, discussing price, quality, colour, wool versus solution-dyed nylon, warranties, stock and certification. Importantly, it encourages you to think about your lifestyle, and your specific family and home needs (like if you have pets or not). The guides are available as downloadable PDFs on their recently-revamped website.
Along with the new site, Cavalier Bremworth has released two new ranges produced from regenerated fibre. The fibre component of the flagship product, Siren, is created entirely of recycled synthetics, including fishing nets recovered from oceans throughout the world. While Siren pile fibre is made of 100% recycled material, the Valour range has a fibre component made from 30% recycled products.
Terence says the range is getting a lot of traction already.
“There is a growing market out there of customers who are sustainability conscious. This product, using the ECONYL® StayClean fibre, works as well as other nylon products but also happens to do its bit for the environment.”
“We’ve already been taking calls from potential and existing customers wanting to know more, specifically because they are mindful about their impact on the environment.”
Cavalier Bremworth has exclusive rights to ECONYL® StayClean across Australasia.
“We’re excited to be part of that,” says Terence.
Both ranges perform as well as existing ranges, if not excelling in stain and soil resistance, and come in a variety of colours. Terence predicts grey will be hot off the shelf, as the trend to cooler Scandinavian style tones remains a dominant trend.
