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.

More about IntelliLoft® Fiber Fill: IntelliLoft® Fiber Fill is the incredibly intelligent recycled, super soft re-engineered polymer made exclusively for West Paw Design. IntelliLoft® is the eco friendly stuffing and cushion used throughout many of West Paw Design's products from the beds to the toys. Because the IntelliLoft® is created from 100% recycled PETE plastic bottles it is not only machine washable, but it washes clean, eliminating those unwanted pet odors.

Our pillow beds are filled with our 100% recycled IntelliLoft® Fiber Fill, which has a thick denier that creates a fluffy, bounce back filling that holds up and gives pets a comfortable rest night after night.

The Long-Staple Batting that makes up the padding in our flat mats and inside many of our fabric toys contains 61% recycled IntelliLoft® material.

More about Fabric made with IntelliLoft® fibers: West Paw Design has Eco Nap®, Eco Toys, and Eco Slumber® beds that use fabric created from IntelliLoft® fibers. These IntelliLoft® fibers are created from recycled, re-engineered polymer that is cleaned, dyed, and sewn together with non-recycled fibers to create a durable, yet soft fabric. The IntelliLoft® fibers make up 100% of the total fabric. An intelligent design of recycled and existing PETE polymer material to create a high quality, non-toxic, super soft fabric that is Eco Friendly.
