Silver Award NEOCON, Chicago



July 14, 2008

Silver Award for Fire-Retardant Fabrics from the Backhausen Company

The family-owned Austrian company in cooperation with one of its U.S. clients received the silver medal at NEOCON Chicago, the largest interior design show in the U.S., for the first recyclable and environmentally friendly fire-retardant fabrics in the world.

These are made of the Trevira CS fiber and reflect the “cradle to cradle” principle. Through the extraction of environmentally questionable substances throughout the entire manufacturing process the company is able to produce recyclable and environmentally friendly fabrics for furniture and decor.
