Exhibitor Award Design Plus

Attractive styling is not enough – since 1983 the Design Plus Award has been given to products that persuasively combine aesthetic qualities and functionality. We won the award for our fabric Benu. Benu PET: In a pioneering technological process empty PET bottles are transformed into yarns. A strict quality check controls the production of yarns. Only the best yarns will be colored, woven, and finally, in accordance with their designated function, finished. The surprising result is a recycled polyester yarn of the finest quality. The Christian Fischbacher Benu PET fabrics are further treated with a special, ecologically sound NanoTex finishing, which provides a unique hydrophobic surface. This makes the fabrics moisture and stain resistant. Made of 100% PET bottles.
