Our circular materials are suitable for all common applications from fashion, home textiles (beddings, sheets, tablecloths etc.) or technical applications (upholstery, parasols, blinds, etc.).
Our circular materials are as durable and functional as classic textile materials. We can also customise some of them to be hydrophobic or antibacterial. Please contact us for specific properties of individual circular materials.
We have a network of collection points where you and your customers can return our circular products for recycling. To discover how the return process works and to view the Nilmore® Circular Points map go to the Recycling page.
In addition to collection points, we will also be happy to design a collection process tailored to your company and your needs. Please contact us for more information about this service.
We have several recycling partners that we work with. We cooperate with Czech universities and Dutch recycling partners in the recycling of circular products made from NILPLA® and NILPET® material. The products form NILCOTT® material we recycle in cooperation with partners in Austria and CIRPAD is recycled by our local partner in Czech republic.
It all depends on your requirements and the specific circular product that you want to create. For common products such as clothing, you can have the first prototype in hand within two weeks. For more complex products or in the case of customized product development prototyping can take up to two months.
The price depends on the specific order. Please contact us for price calculation.
Corn as a material enters part of our circular cycle only at the beginning, we already have part of the input material from recycled sources such as PLA waste. Then, thanks to recycling, we only keep the corn in circulation. There is therefore no risk of a shortage of corn for food due to production.
Plastic bottles make up only 18% of the total weight of the material from which we make our NILPET® textile. The rest consists of recycled plastic waste and textiles. In the future, our goal is to only use textile waste and turn it into a new textile to avoid disruption of PET bottle recycling scheme.
