On display

elk polyester cushioning material is a lightweight, durable, cushiony and breathable material that is an excellent substitute for polyurethane used in mattresses and many other cushioning applications, according to the manufacturer. It is also said to be eco-friendly because it does not generate cyanogen gas when incinerated.

Teijin will also showcase pillows made with Solotex, a polytrimethylene terephthalate fibre that has soft touch. Partially bio-derived, Solotex helps to conserve fossil resources, the company reports.
