A unique sustainable
Tencel Padding by RDD
Tencel Padding by RDD is a unique solution that uses responsible artificial botanical fibers – 100% Tencel – as an ingredient for the filler, developed by RDD, through an environmentally friendly needle punch process (mechanical web bonding).
RDD Textiles won the Hightex Award 1st prize at the Munich Fabric Start with this innovative environmentally conscious product.
Our purpose was to give a sustainable solution in thermo-bonded products for the fashion industry- garment, shoes, home textiles - and for the new conscious consumer.
The article, properly named Conscious Thermo Bonded, presents a unique solution, mixing the aforementioned Tencel Padding by RDD with jersey fabrics from the circular economy project Valérius 360: the yarns and jerseys were produced with the cutting waste of the clothing manufacturers of our textile group.
Tencel Padding by RDD was also distinguished with a Special Mention – Excellence in Business to Business, Materials & Surfaces – was awarded by the German Design Council in the 2020 of German Innovation Awards, standing out due to features like its exclusivity, breathability, comfort and sustainability.
"The German Innovation Awards honours products and solutions that distinguish themselves primarily by their user centricity and added value compared to earlier solutions across all industrial sectors"
