SECOND NATURE™

Second Nature™ certified materials are produced almost entirely of recycled industrial surplus and are renewable, compostable and climate-neutral. This protects valuable resources that are otherwise used in the manufacture of certain materials, such as polyester. The entire manufacturing process is environmentally friendly: only eco-friendly dyes and energy-efficient power looms are used, the energy requirement is largely met by green energy, and care is taken to reduce the amount of wastewater produced.      

The following upholstery materials from the Klöber color and material collection are certified:

  • Chicago (Camira)
