Sustainable fabrics

Our vision: ADO fabrics are going green

Our long-term goal is to make our range from 100% recycled fabrics, to ensure we use no new materials whatsoever and keep existing ones in the cycle instead. To move one step closer to our goals, we have developed our first sustainable collection with our producers, which contains between 39% and 63% recycled polyester.

How can synthetic fibers be sustainable?

The production of synthetic fibers has a higher energy footprint than natural fibers, but significantly less water and dyestuffs are used in the process. Synthetic materials also don’t need to be cultivated, therefore no arable land or pesticides are used in their manufacture. But the most convincing argument for synthetics is their durability: synthetic fibers have a very high lightfastness and are highly washable. The fabrics keep their brilliance despite being subject to the sun’s UV rays through the window. The dyes also adhere better to the fibers and the fabric can be washed more often without losing color intensity. In short, you'll have many more years of joy from your curtains.

Sustainable product care

Curtains don’t need to be washed as often as other fabrics and can also be washed at lower temperatures. Mostly a short wash program at max. 30°C suffices to attain the desired cleaning. A short spin or none at all also saves energy and does less damage to the fiber. In order to avoid the release of microplastics, additional fittings like curtain hooks should be removed before washing and the curtain placed in a laundry bag that filters out microplastics.
