Our take on polyester
Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions.
The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products.
In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.
Designed to keep delicate clothing or clothing with hooks and sharp fasteners separate from other items in the washing machine.
By separating items from the rest of the washing load, this helps reduce friction, entanglement and the risk of the clothes being damaged in other ways – helping your clothing last longer.
The washing bag is perfect for keeping smaller items like socks together so they don’t get lost in the wash.
The mesh fabric allows water to flow in and around the garments placed inside.
