And Crypton is recyclable and we’ve been recycling it for the past four years. HD: And you’ve taken other steps to make your product more environmentally responsible in the past few years too, right? RR: We are very involved in working on the Act Green standard guidelines. We work with Sterling Planet on energy credits. We are certified by SCS, MBDC, Okitex. The Crypton Care line is third-party certified and has the EPA approval on the disinfectant. The whole reformulation of our chemicals was a major step. Today we use silver ion protection for our biocides for the bacterial resistance and it has non-leaching chemicals. We feel really great about what we’ve done. babies. Then we looked at the wall. If you ask us to do something, we’ll do it. Their big problem is staining and mold on the back of the wallcovering. We are always a solution to a problem or a challenge. HD: Where do you see the technology heading? RR: The microbial protection is definitely headed in the silver ion direction [which we use]. In terms of stain repellency, I just do not see that as going away in areas of high traffic. People don’t want to look at dirty things. We came up with a stain resistant product called INCASE for areas where there is no barrier required—like drapery, pillows. HD: And now there’s new carpet technology? RR: Carpet has been the bane of our existence for the last 10 years. About six months ago, someone came to us with a nylon fabric and they said could you get it so that if bleach touches it, it won’t take the color out? Our chemist came up with this whole thing to treat fiber. In the process of doing that we found a very unique way of getting nylon to be virtually stain-resistant. And then we thought okay, we have these fibers that have this unbelievable stain repellency that could also now resist bleach. And if you integrate a barrier into the carpet you have a Crypton-like carpet. With Crypton, nothing will go through the pad. With Signature Carpets [who we are working with], they have been a long established name in hospitality. It’s remarkable. And now we also have Leather Powered by Crypton available through Edelman Leather. HD: What’s the secret to your success? RR: We always send out perfect product, we always send it out on time, we always make it better, and we market. We stay very connected to our distributors and design community and we listen. Designers trust the brand; it’s been used for 15 years now. Millions of yards are out there everyday. There isn’t a day that we don’t concentrate on our core business. This is the lifeblood of our company. The other reason that we are a strong company is that we thought about how to diversify. It is really helping us in this economy that we have gone into the consumer area, into wall and carpet. It really makes a difference and makes us financially sound so we could do more. We are a success story. Craig and I, we work together, we live together, we’re still madly in love with each other, and we work really hard. HD: Let’s get into some of the products including the mattress fabric and wallcoverings. RR: We started making mattress protectors and then we started talking to Simmons and they asked is it possible to just have a Crypton mattress? That took us a while because of flammability codes and more stretch than our traditional fabric. But if you think about it, if you could choose a hotel that had a bed that could be literally disinfected and you knew it was clean, how would you not want to sleep there? Then in the consumer area we are doing a mattress with Kolcraft, a baby mattress. It is made out of bamboo. It is the first green mattress that is offered for HD: What’s next for you? RR: We are experimenting a lot with military fabrics and getting into consumer products. As consumers get to know us there are companies now that are asking us to do fabrics for their products so that has been really fun. Wherever there is a soft surface, don’t be surprised to see us. hd www.cryptonfabric.com www.hdmag.com December 2009
