World’s only sustainable luxury carpets shortlisted at this year’s The International Design & Architecture Awards 2022

Luxury carpet brand SYLKA has been named as a finalist at this year’s International Design & Architecture Awards 2022 for its latest innovation, EcoSylk.

Launched earlier this year, this innovative new fibre system is crafted using sustainable yarns regenerated from recycled carpets that would otherwise end up in landfill.

Following a harrowing trip to the USA to see how millions of tonnes of used carpets are sent to landfills, the award-winning team behind SYLKA Carpets set about developing a ‘circular solution’ that would ensure that every carpet created not only comes from recycled fibres but that every carpet they produce are themselves fully recyclable.

This new development now replaces its previous fibre, NuSilk, across all of SYLKA’s range of opulent carpets and rugs so that clients continue to enjoy some of the world’s best flooring while preventing thousands of tonnes of used carpets from going to landfill.

Judges at the International Design & Architecture Awards 2022 were impressed by SYLKA’s commitment to sustainability and have shortlisted them for the Flooring: Carpets/Rugs at this year’s awards.

Steve Farrell, Founder and Managing Director at SYLKA, said: “We are really proud of what we have achieved with EcoSylk. It is a considerable development for us and ensures that we are reducers rather than producers of waste.

“The sustainability of EcoSylk sets us apart from many other luxury flooring brands while ensuring that we retain the reputation for quality that has become synonymous with SYLKA.”

Having gained a place at these awards, SYLKA are now calling on the public to get behind them and support them in a public vote, which closes on Wednesday 21 September 2022 at 5pm BST.

SYLKA will find out whether its revolutionary EcoSylk development has won an award at a glamorous event at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House, London on Friday 23 September 2022
