Loop by the Yard

March 19, 2011

Do-it-yourself textile material

Loop By the Yard is a reversible textile-like material for all do-it-yourself projects. Designed as a free product take-back system, Loop is made from Tyvek, a spun bonded high-density polyethylene non-woven material. Each yard of Loop can be cut, sewn, wrinkled, folded, pierced, hung or hemmed like a textile. It is durable, breathable and waterproof, making it ideal for a variety of do-it-yourself indoor and outdoor projects.

The Loop By the Yard concept takes an industrial material with versatile characteristics and turns it into a product that consumers can customize. Its durability and varied applications encourage product re-use, while existing recycling infrastructure helps consumers close the recycling loop. Each order ships with a prepaid envelope for shipping scraps or the actual project (when no longer wanted or needed) back to MIO for recycling.
