CASASOL - Recycled macramé yarn from Spain
CASASOL Handmade® is Filicor's brand, which is geared to the needs of the flourishing handmade sector. Its catalogue features versatile and highly specialized materials, manufactured in an environmentally friendly way and 100% in Europe. They can be used to create many handmade projects (knitting, crochet, punch needle, macramé, tapestry, etc.).
Bottle Macramé, our new SEAQUAL-certified macramé for a clean ocean
Filicor S.L., operating under the name of CASASOL®, is honored to have obtained an official license to produce SEAQUAL™ certified macramé. Bottle Macramé is our latest innovation to provide our customers with an environmentally friendly, high quality product made from recycled plastics extracted from the sea, mainly plastic bottles.
Bottle Macramé is made from 100% recycled polyester yarn that has undergone a transformation process from post-consumer plastics of marine origin to fully functional fibres that meet all quality standards.
The end product is a 100% resistant 3-PLY macramé rope for macramé that does not deteriorate easily. It also feels very comfortable and its unique composition tolerates a low density dyeing process, saving 50% of the water normally used.
It is a very versatile material, as it is available in a wide range of thicknesses (3 mm, 5 mm, 7 mm and 9 mm) and in various metre and weight coils. The smallest thicknesses (3 and 5 mm) can be used to make accessories (macramé jewellery, key rings and handbags), interior and exterior decoration (table runners, placemats, room dividers, cushions, plant hangers, garden accessories, etc.), tapestries and looms. Thicknesses 7 and 9 mm can also be used to make tapestries, looms and interior and exterior decorations.
The SEAQUAL™ initiative is a Spanish-based organisation that has created a unique cooperation platform involving NGOs, fishermen, local communities, researchers, scientists, public authorities and private stakeholders in order to cleanse our oceans from marine pollution and breathe new life into waste lost in the environment.
Through its collaboration with the SEAQUAL™ initiative, CASASOL® is helping communities make the transition to a closed loop economy and participating in the solution to ocean pollution by reducing waste.
A new CASASOL Handmade® material and sample magazine is now available for our customers and industry specialists who would like to learn more about us. Order it now for free.
