Quest recycled fabric by Camira

Dezeen Showroom: British textile brand Camira has launched Quest – a versatile fabric made of recycled plastic waste taken from the oceans.

Quest is the second textile that Camira has made together with the Seaqual Initiative, a community-orientated ocean clean-up organisation that makes some of its recovered waste into Seaqual Yarn.

The yarn is 100 per cent post-consumer recycled polyester, and in Quest, Camira uses it to make a lightly textured fabric with a subtle two-tone hopsack weave.

"Woven entirely from recycled plastic, it really does epitomise waste made wonderful, and, with its casually elegant aesthetic and evocative colour palette, it's the ideal textile for inclusion in contemporary commercial interiors with a sustainable ethos," said Camira creative head Lynn Kingdon.

Quest comes in 27 colour options. Camira recommends it for lounge and task seating and says it is ideal for panels.

In addition to the benefit of reusing the equivalent of 23 plastic bottles per metre of Quest, Camira also makes a donation directly to the Seaqual Initiative for every metre of fabric sold.
