Laser Felt Eco is made from 100% post-consumer recycled water bottles.
We start with bottles collected from recycle centers and community bottle drives. Those bottles are ground into flakes and melted into liquid form. Then we add a little bit of silver, copper and all the pigments needed to create our gorgeous color palette. The metals act as an antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral agent that is cleared by the FDA. This is a feature that you cannot get in any other felt product on the market. Because the pigments are contained in every fiber, Laser Felt Eco is solution dyed, UV resistant and bleach cleanable.
Now this green formula is run through mechanical spinnerets to create our fibers. This is the same way a spider makes a web. After the fibers have cooled, they are blended together and proceed through a needle punch process which locks the fibers together creating a very durable, breathable textile that doesn’t absorb moisture and will not shrink.
In the last stage of production the material is calendared which means they glide over a hot roller and that fuses the fibers together.All of this makes LaserFelt.
The cleanest and greenest decorative textile available on the market.
