"Imbotex presented upcycled and recyclable paddings.
Their silk padding is made from recycled silk, blended with PLA (polylactic acid), a biodegradable, bio-based plastic made from sugarcane. The production process starts with turning leftover silk fabric into fibres. This is done completely mechanically, and no water or chemicals are involved.
For the wool-based padding, waste wool from sheep in Bavaria in Germany is used."
