Himalaya Carpets products consist of two main materials, natural wools and recycled material.
Wool of The World
Himalaya Carpets searches the globe to find the finest carpet wools in the world. From the Himalaya to New Zealand, Himalaya Carpets have a commitment to outstanding naturally sourced raw materials for the construction of its quality carpets. The company buys over 20,000 tons of pure new wool a year. This high-quality wool is sourced from across the globe, from the Himalaya zone, New Zealand and several countries in Europe, including the UK, Italy and Greece. The company has its own scouring, dyeing and backing lanes, which allow us to control all the aspect of the manufacturing process, from the beginning to the end.
As part of its natural product range, Himalaya Carpets also buys and uses Yak hair in a selected range of high end products. Yak hair gives the carpet a great isolation capacity, together with a natural look and high resistance to odor.
Himalaya Carpets USA parent company, F&X Carpets Belgium, is a global leader in the field of plastics recycling. Not only does the group produce and sell technologically advance recycling machinery across the globe, but it has developed one of the most unique vertically integrated recycled carpet manufacturing businesses in the world today.
Our European company Oriental Recycling, sources more than 120,000 tons of plastic bottles a year, which are then washed, flaked and extruded in the company's own recycling facilities to produce high quality polyester (PET) fiber.
This 100% recycled fiber is then spun in the organization's spinning mills to produce outstanding soft PET polyester carpet yarn.
Himalaya Carpets manufacturing operation then tufts the recycled PET yarn into an exquisite carpet that is both soft to the touch, durable in performance and has outstanding cleaning abilities. When our EcoLux PET yarn is combined with our RePET recycled PET backing system, the combination delivers one of the most environmentally responsible synthetic fiber carpets available today.
