Carnegie has launched Outdoor Biobased Xorel, giving the industry a new label to stand by: “plant-based.”
This outdoor performance textile contains a whopping 85% biobased PE content with yarn sourced from rapidly-renewable sugarcane. And for each ton of sugarcane used to produce it, 2.5 tons of carbon is captured and sequestered, making this a carbon-positive product. Fabrics can be knit, woven or crocheted and include the following pattern options:
Zion: Inspired by the sedimentary rocks found in Zion National Park, and applicable for upholstery, upholstery walls and panels.
Cover: Free of PVC, chlorine, plasticizers, heavy metals, ozone-depleting chemicals and contains no topical finishes. It’s also antibacterial and available for outdoor drapery, vertical partitions, privacy screens and space dividers.
Denali: Evokes the mountain peaks of Denali Mountain and can be used for upholstery, upholstery walls and panels.
Nest: Created using crochet techniques for a more handcrafted look, it’s suitable for outdoor drapery, vertical partitions, privacy screens and space dividers.
Acadia: Inspired by the various textures and landscapes in Acadia National Park, it can also be used for upholstery, upholstery walls and panels.
Outdoor Biobased Xorel has undergone thousands of hours of laboratory and field testing making it perfect for those increasingly more important outdoor spaces in healthcare facilities from long-term care and senior housing to major hospital campuses.
