One of the world’s leading manufacturers of polyamide (PA) and polypropylene (PP) yarns for contract, automotive, and residential applications has invited designers to work closely with them to create a new range of high-end loop-pile contract and automotive carpets called ColorMind.
This innovative yarn technology is B.I.G. Yarns’ first venture into a two steps yarn collection, offering a unique solution for creating multi-colour PA6 yarns for any carpet design.
Elevating manufacturing creativity
Available from mid-June 2021 in both standard and EqoCycle 75% recycled content yarn, designers are invited to work closely with B.I.G. Yarns experts to realise the designs they have always wanted. Combinations of variable levels of twisting and air entanglement, using up to 6 colours at once, elevate design possibilities beyond current limitations.
The ColorMind colour bank features predefined colours which are always in stock, meaning short lead times. Manufacturers can also benefit from customised lot sizes and bobbin length, creating even more flexibility and design freedom.
To preview a taster of the potential directions opened for loop-pile carpets, B.I.G. Yarns has used the technology to achieve its own “Optica” dot effect and “Illusion” wave effect as inspiration for customers’ design explorations.
New level of customisation
Emmanuel Colchen, General Manager B.I.G. Yarns, comments, “ColorMind offers never-seen yarn diversity to support a new level of design sophistication in high-end carpet segments. We’re immensely proud and excited to enter into two steps yarns with a solution offering something truly special, the result of intensive dedication from our design and development teams.
“ColorMind combines our strengths in delivering high-performance, more sustainable yarns to fit the evolving demands of high-end segments, underpinned by our expertise in colour sequencing and colour mixing. We’re looking forward to exciting collaborations and innovative, eye-catching designs for future loop-pile carpets,” concludes Emmanuel.
ColorMind PA6 yarns are based on a unique Solution Dyed Nylon yarn and are suitable for Class 33 certification (heavy commercial use). The EqoCycle yarn version is mainly based on post-industrial waste and supports contract and automotive carpet manufacturers with a drop-in circular solution to reduce the ecological footprint of their end carpets.
