A window where you can stop and think, gaze, dream and slow down. A window from which to peer into the distance. At De Ploeg we embrace this distance, we study the horizon and safeguard the future by carefully shaping it in the here and now.
Timelessness is the key to thinking and acting sustainably
In January 2023 we are launching a curtain collection that embodies this vision. A collection that we know has been made in a climate-friendly way and with weaves and colour combinations that epitomize timeless design. Timelessness is the key to thinking and acting sustainably. We all have a responsibility to make carefully considered choices, to resist the temptations of fleeting aesthetic fluctuations and to choose a product
that suits us, always.
The production of a sustainable collection starts with sourcing raw materials that embody this philosophy. To create a product that is comprised of sustainable materials, with a stylish feel and appearance and of which the building blocks can easily be recycled. This is how we offer a product that meets our wishes and needs, but primarily also theirs, the generation that will succeed us.
An innovative dream yarn
The new collection includes airy, flowing curtains that you want to touch, to run your hands through and feel how the sunlight flows through the fresh colours. These curtains are produced using pre- and post-consumer waste products and are therefore a worthy addition to our existing Durables collection.
The process of selecting raw materials for our curtains is completely in line with our vision. Searching for the most innovative and sustainable dream yarn is therefore an integral factor in the development of our collections. We have also developed new yarns for this collection, made from both pre- and post-consumer waste materials. In the production of yarns and textiles, many components are seen as waste. Waste with potential. At De Ploeg we have established collaborations with renowned suppliers such as Trevira, which collects pre-consumer waste and turns it into new raw materials. Residual materials, edging, offcuts and faulty pieces are collected in an innovative way and further developed into responsible and high-quality yarns. The refined Trevira CS yarn has fire retardant properties and is soft to the touch. The dynamic weave is elegant in appearance and very easy to look after.
We also use post-consumer waste. Various products, including PET bottles and residual products from the fashion industry, are recycled to create a strong and flexible yarn. A technique that enables us to give waste products a second life. Recycling cotton is also part of this. The assembly of the cotton clothing industry produces a lot of residual waste. The special thing about this last dream yarn is that the careful colour selection of the residual products ensures that the fibres do not need to be dyed, and can be spun directly into a colourful yarn.
A better tomorrow
By combining craftsmanship and high-tech production techniques, De Ploeg has once again developed a sustainable curtain collection. Using recycled yarns or yarns from more sustainable sources such as hemp and Lyocell, and collaborating with partners that share our vision, we believe that we can make a more positive impact on the world.
A curtain collection with which you wake up in the morning with a clear vision and reflect in the evening with a clear view of tomorrow, a better tomorrow.
