At Haworth, we are dedicated to building a circular economy—one in which resources are continually reused, recycled, and upcycled to reduce waste. We believe taking a circular approach to designing products and materials is one of the biggest opportunities our industry and its partners have to create a sustainable future. That’s why we’re proud to bring you Oceanic, a beautiful upcycled-plastic polyester upholstery fabric.
Over the past 60 years, an estimated 12.7 million tons of plastic waste have been dumped into our oceans, negatively impacting marine ecosystems and more than 800 species of life. Through the SEAQUAL Initiative, marine debris is collected and transformed into Upcycled Marine Plastic pellets, which are extruded into SEAQUAL Yarn. The fibers are then woven by textile partner Camira to produce Oceanic.
