Unique appearance

The product is available in varying shades of gray, blue and white, which are determined by the clothes it is produced from. We can never ensure an exact repetition of a specific nuance, from batch to batch, since our input material will always vary slightly. However, this just means that your batch is unique to your project!

Approach

Origin

Nærø textile felt is produced from worn-out workwear, which can no longer be used for clothing or other secondary clothing production. We have developed a method for sorting, where we get clean and pure fractions of textiles, which ensures high quality for the end product. After sorting the fabric is ground and this process transforms the material from woven form to short, manageable fibers. The short fibers are mixed with binders and, if need be, a cradle-to-cradle certified fire retardant. The final part of the production process is felting, which binds the material together into nonwoven acoustic batts.

Materials

Approach
1

Collection: 

Worn work wear is collected around Denmark. It is then sorted and cleaned so we can control colour and quality

2

Shredding: 

The sorted. clean textiles are then shredded to fine fibres

3

Processing: 

The fibres are spun up and mixed with a binder. The mixture is heated and bound together uniformly, whilst it is pressed into the right thickness

4

Cutting: 

The stream of material is cut to a standard sized batt. We offer a variety of colours, which are always directly linked with the work wear used to make them

Material characteristics
We believe in honest materials and embrace their features.

Surface: 

The surface will very slightly based on the input

Colour: 

Colour will vary slightly from batch to batch

Mix: 

The polycotton mix can make the batt slightly softer or stiffer

Speckles: 

The batt may be more or less speckled based on the shredding

Finish

The batts need no finishing, as they come out of the production with a stiff, uniform surface
