John Horsfall introduces recycled fabrics range Re-Thread
John Horsfall is introducing Re-Thread, a range of recycled, regenerated and plant-based fibers and fabrics for use in onboard comfort items. John Horsfall’s Re-Thread programme enables airlines to choose well made, considerately sourced & long-lasting products.
Taking influence from the worlds of technical textiles and sports-wear, the R&D team have worked closely with specialist manufactures to bring recycled, sustainable and long-lasting fabrics to the commercial aviation market.
Re-Thread offers airlines a holistic approach to sustainability, taking into account all aspects of the product life cycle; from raw materials to logistics, packaging, longevity, laundry and end-of-life disposal.
The range includes blankets, fillings and cotton.
Innovative woven blankets use fibers generated from post-consumer-waste. Offering bespoke design opportunities and lessening micro-plastic shedding compared with fleece blankets; these blankets can also last at least 100 washes. Value for money and a sustainable alternative to short-life products.
Pillows, duvets and mattresses can now be made with 100 percent recycled fiber filling. Diverting plastic waste from landfill & offering the same levels of comfort & warmth as virgin fibres.
Regenerated cotton fibers from post-consumer textile waste such as denim garments can be used in our soft woven bedding and all-in-one duvets.
