You would be hard pressed to find a perfectly straight line in nature – certainly not in the undulating raw power of our oceans and seas. Designed as a tribute, Net Effect is a carpet tile collection that honors the ocean not only in its aesthetic references but also in a unique and tangible way through a project called Net-Works.
Net-Works provides a source of income for small fishing villages in the Philippines while cleaning up their beaches and waters of discarded fishing nets that threaten their livelihood and the very precious double barrier reef off their shore. Discarded fishing nets are collected and sold to our trusted yarn supplier and partner, Aquafil. Since 2011 they’ve been re-purposing waste nylon from discarded fishing nets and other sources, including yarn reclaimed through our own ReEntry program, to provide recycled content nylon for Interface carpet tile.
