Vorwerk is a 130-year-old company that values sophisticated design and environmentally sound manufacturing above all. Their innovations in sustainable flooring have set them apart from other manufacturers in achieving several industry firsts: Vorwerk is the only producer of certified hypoallergenic carpets and their textile-backed carpet tiles are the greenest in their category.
The Vorwerk RE/COVER Green line of resilient eco-friendly flooring, designed by Hadi Teherani, is made from ecological elastomers and 90% regenerative raw materials like castor and canola oil in place of petrochemical substances that are typically used. Specifically, the line does not contain chlorine, plasticizers, solvents, or polyvinyl chloride, and is almost entirely emission-free. RE/COVER Green products also have innate slip resistance and let off no toxic gases when burned. Certifications include Blue Angel, EU REACH, M1 (Finland), A+ (France), GREENGUARD (USA, certified safe for schools), and the top life cycle cost rating.
