Brentano Takes Upcycling to the Next Level With its Latest Textile
How’s this for clever? The 10-inch vertical repeat of the shapely geometries inspired by the neo-deco trend on Renata, a new chenille by Brentano founder and artistic director Iris Wang, subtly telegraphs the contours of a plastic water bottle. In turn, that hints at the textile’s composition: an eco-friendly material known as Seaqual Yarn, made of 10 percent upcycled marine plastic retrieved from oceans, beaches, and rivers and 90 percent post-consumer recycled plastic.
Part of the Seaqual Initiative, it raises awareness of the problem of marine litter as well as drawing welcome attention to the organizations working to clean up our waterways. Renata comes in seven colorways and is part of the Vida collection that celebrates inspiration from ordinary things.
