What is IntelliLoft?

How do you make recycled plastic bottles into fabric and fiber fill that is so soft?

IntelliLoft® is clean, safe, re-engineered PETE (polyethylene terephthalate) polymer material that is a win/win for our customers and the environment! By recycling existing PETE polymer material we are reducing energy use while keeping plastic bottles out of our landfills. Creating products that use IntelliLoft® recycled material can use up to 8 times less energy than it takes to manufacture the same material new.
