ANKER brand ecological textile coverings

27 of November '22

The German company Anker is one of the oldest and largest German manufacturers of textile carpets. Founded in 1854 - near Cologne - in the village of Duren - it is one of the few to have survived the turmoil of history and is still - in part - owned by the family of its founders - the Schoeller family.

Eco-friendly bottom line

Anker, as one of the leading innovators in the textile flooring market, decided as early as 2018 to replace the non-ecological bituminous underside in its carpet tiles - with an underside made of TPE - a thermoplastic elastomer. This material is fully recoverable and can be recycled many times - without harming the environment. Presented collections Atum and Tram as well as collections: Sam, Neba, Terum and Codit are produced exclusively on the underside of Unit back.

Eco-friendly fibers

Anker - was the first company in Germany and one of the first in Europe to start using Econyl fibers - for which old fishing nets are used - in its production. Caring for the environment by reducing waste and reprocessing the materials used is a conscious policy of the owners - the Schoeller family - who have identified themselves with the local community and environmental protection for centuries.

Personalization of the carpet in tiles

Random - is a carpet in tiles of multiple possibilities - due to the varying degree of color saturation of individual tiles - the final effect depends on the person laying the tiles, In a sense, one creates - a work of art. A unique color combination - which diversifies the floor with the variety of its shades - variable depending on the angle of view, the degree of illumination and the direction of laying.

Unique lightness and durability

Anker is Europe's largest producer of flat-woven carpets. This technology consists of weaving on a mechanical loom single or multicolored yarn strands fed to the loom in appropriate sequences - creating flat or three-dimensional - single or multicolored floor fabrics. The carpets produced by this technology are characterized by high abrasion resistance as well as tensile and pressure resistance. They are characterized by very low tare weight - making them an ideal material for use in the aviation industry - where every liter of fuel saved means a cheaper ticket and less pollution. Many airlines - including Lufthansa, Emirates and Lot - use Anker carpets.

Le Corbusier by Anker

Renowned architect and art creator Le Corbusier recognized the importance of color in architecture. During many years of research, he created a select range of colors for use in architecture and everyday life. Anker - as the only company - has the right to use Le Corbusier's 63 colors for its carpets. The Anker Perlon Rips LCS and Anker Premium Carpet collections are based on these colors.
