Fletco carpet textiles are designed and manufactured in Denmark, in their own state-of-the-art production facility. Built to be flexible, their machinery allows for easy adaptation of new technologies and methodologies, with innovation in relation to eco-aware design top of mind.
Beginning as a family business more than 70 years ago, Fletco Carpets has its roots in the proud traditions of the region which is known for its craftsmanship in textile products and culture of industry and precision.
With a reputation for quality, Fletco has won numerous awards including for excellence in product design, and in innovation and design for their eco-friendly carpet backing.
The Danish are famed for their understated beauty, driven by function and quality as well as form. The Fletco commercial carpet range embodies this, featuring clean lines and geometries with low profiles achieved through innovative manufacturing processes. This means their carpets are extremely durable as well as timelessly ‘scandi-stylish’.
The ranges we have chosen for New Zealand are predominantly flat woven, meaning the carpet construction is ribbed, each strand interlocking with the next, which holds the yarn firmly in place. This makes it extremely durable.
As well as nylon and wool broadlooms and nylon tiles, designs include interlocking carpet tiles that can be non-stick laid – and look like broadloom – as well as printed tiles that draw inspiration from distressed wood and concrete, and shaped tiles that can create a mosaic, or even 3D effect.
Fletco Carpets meets or surpasses the regulatory and certifying bodies’ carpet manufacturing requirements for Europe. Wherever possible, they engage in research and development into new methods and materials that strive to be more sustainable.
Fletco Carpets use only 100% renewable, CO2 neutral energy. The electricity for the entire factory is wind-powered. The product is very lightweight, meaning shipping costs and carbon footprint is lower.
Fletco carpet yarns contain recycled content – some designs are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles – and are safe for allergy and asthma sufferers, free from harmful chemicals, PVC and VOCs and have numerous European certifications for indoor air quality and emissions, including BREEAM and EPD.
The EcoTEX™ carpet backing has won numerous European awards as well as a special mention for Sustainable Brand of the Year at the German Brand Awards 2019.
Heritage Carpets is proud to be the sole importer and distributor of Fletco Carpets in New Zealand.
