Capella, one of the modules in Beirholm’s full-service concept for Bed, Table and Bath, has been developed using BeirTex® 635 fabric, which is highly durable and cost-effective in terms of laundering.
We have developed the design as an alternative to a satin-weave product. A classic, attractive, white design that can be processed in the same way as the fabric of the Piccobello concept.
The Capella design has delicate, feminine stripes in a calm, elegant progression, where the diagonal weaves in the stripes accentuate the design and create depth and interplay. Capella is suitable for any environment and is also intended as a natural extension of the Piccobello concept to equip the laundry with a product that will satisfy customers who desire a more exclusive hotel look.
Operational-fit products for crucial profitability in laundering
The products are designed for industrial laundering and manufactured at the very best, state-of-the-art production facilities. The result is improved shape retention and thus reduced shrinkage, which we exploit when establishing sizes, because the measurements after laundering are what count!
Poor seams can be the product’s weakest link, leading to premature rejection. Our seams are optimised by the use of quality sewing thread, and the products are also bar-tacked and free of tension. This ensures an attractive finish and maximum durability – a skilfully finished product, ideal for industrial processing in a modern, professional laundry.
A great many advantages from this design derive from the low 130 g/m2 weight. First, this means more items can be washed per load because there is less bulk. Also, roller speed can be increased significantly. Finally, packing and shipping become more profitable: quite simply, more sets will fit in a container and handling is therefore much easier. The fact that polyester/cotton products are also easier to separate since they “cling” less than pure cotton products is an improvement for the working environment, too.
Profitability, sustainability, the environment and ethics go hand in hand…….. at no extra cost
Capella uses ground-breaking BeirTex® yarns, with technology that makes it possible to spin most of the cotton fibres on the outside of a polyester core, ensuring that the “feel-good” sensation of cotton preferred by end-users is as convincing as in cotton products. At the same time, the laundry saves on overheads, as the new product is less susceptible to pilling and retains a superb, attractive finish throughout the product’s life cycle.
Cotton farming is the most polluting form of farming on this planet. That is why we use BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) cotton in our BeirTex® yarns, so the product you get is far more sustainable and ethically produced.
Moreover, BeirTex® bed linen is manufactured in compliance with the strict requirements of the EU Eco-label. The EU Eco-label ensures that only fibres produced in the most eco-friendly way are used. There are strict requirements regulating all chemicals used in the production process. There are requirements concerning waste water from dye-works, and there are requirements regulating the quality of the finished product.
Finally, our BeirTex® products are certified to OEKO-TEX® 100 “Confidence in Textiles”, Class 1, which is the strictest classification you can achieve, as it is intended for babies and children up to age 3.
We have developed all our BeirTex® products so that they are produced using BCI cotton, the EU Eco-label and OEKO-TEX® 100. That way, we are able to deliver the same price level as for conventional manufacturing.
BeirTex® products with BCI cotton, EU Eco Flower and OEKO-TEX® 100 certification are ground-breaking textiles that are sure to change many people’s idea of the use of polyester in bed linen and table linen. This fabric offers a hitherto unparalleled combination of three top benefits: maximum comfort, the lowest processing costs and a high level of sustainability.
