Take-back system for DELIUS fabrics
Sustainability is not a trend, but a commitment that we take seriously. Less CO₂ and less waste production: we ensure this with durable, high-quality and, if possible, unmixed materials.
With DELIUS ReTurn, we are taking further steps towards conserving resources and safeguarding the future. We have put together our own team of experts and developed a system that has proven its worth:
a circular system for the responsible use of polyester in the textile industry.
This is how we understand circular economy.
70% of the textiles in our collection are single-variety, i.e. made of 100% polyester FR or Trevira CS and are therefore easily recyclable. These single-variety polyester fabrics are a particularly valuable resource and can find further uses via various recycling methods. This saves resources and the environment because less polyester has to be produced and less valuable material has to be disposed of.
We take back our unmixed textiles after their life cycle in order to return them to the cycle through mechanical recycling.
When our polyester fabrics reach the end of their product life after use, we like to make sure that they are available for other applications for a long time to come.
So together with you, we responsibly solve the disposal problem and return the used textiles to an economically sensible cycle. The fabrics are reprocessed for the automotive and construction industries, where they can be used for many decades to come.
All single-variety articles are marked with this label.
ReTurn note on delivery note
This is also where the processing company finds the information about the DELIUS ReTurn system.
ReTurn sewn-in labels with QR code
When the goods are delivered, we will provide you or your assembler with sufficient ReTurn sewing-in labels. Please sew labels into every curtain. This ensures that you are entitled to return the fabrics to us even after many years. And it shows your responsible and sustainable actions to the outside world.
Sustainable action also requires short transport routes. That's why we only offer the ReTurn programme for countries in the EU.
ReTurn in just three simple steps
Currently we can only take back fabrics from EU countries for recycling.
