SFC Working Group: Sustainable Ways to Stuff Your Sofa! 

A look at ENKEV's Sustainable Materials 

Enkev logo

SFC Member ENKEV is a materials supplier based in The Netherlands with a warehouse and distribution center in High Point, NC. ENKEV specializes in engineering and producing circular and bio-degradable materials to enable the manufacturing of sustainable products - like your upholstered sofa and chair. 

In this Working Group, we'll learn about: 

  • Origin and Benefits of these natural materials 
  • Alternative materials to traditional poly-urethane foam
  • Case Studies and Success Stories 
  •  How to source more sustainably for large-scale manufacturing or smaller custom projects

Karsten Siewert will present the ENKEV story and how this 100-year-old company has always produced materials for sustainability.

This presentation is geared towards all SFC Members, with manufacturers, buyers, and designers in mind.
