Manchester, NH (PRWEB) June 23, 2010
A groundbreaking new product line has just hit the home décor sector. Capitalizing on extensive research, testing and the latest technology, Tigressá SoftStyle carpet is bringing a whole new level of durability and resilience to the carpet category.
Named after the tiger, one of the world's strongest and most visually stunning creatures, Tigressá SoftStyle carpet features a one-of-a-kind blend of softness and strength through its makeup of precision-engineered, high-tensile denier filaments. These super-strong, precision nylon fibers have more filaments per square inch and thus can spread out daily carpet wear over more individual fibers - allowing Tigressá to take on more steps and more spills year after year. In addition, Tigressá carpet's fine-denier filaments utilize advanced yarn engineering and fewer dye pockets in each strand resulting in a luxuriously smooth softness and richer, longer lasting color.
Tigressá SoftStyle is made out of Type 6 nylon - a recyclable nylon that's not only soft on consumers' feet, but also soft on the environment, too. Shaw Floors, the manufacturer of Tigressá carpet and the world's largest carpet recycler, has already recycled over 200 million pounds of post-consumer Type 6 nylon.
To accompany the release of this exciting line of carpet, Tigressá is partnering with the Save the Tiger Fund (STF) to raise money for its endangered namesake. STF supports effective efforts that enable endangered wild tigers to recover and flourish. STF also works to empower local people to live in balance with their natural resources. Through a partnership with STF, a portion of all Tigressá carpet sales made at any Carpet One Floor & Home, Flooring America and Flooring Canada retailer between May 16 and August 20, 2010 will be donated to STF.
The Tigressá Sweepstakes - also running from May 16, 2010 to August 20, 2010 - will feature a grand prize trip for two to India to see the majestic tigers, three first prize $1,500 Tigressá SoftStyle gift cards and five second prize digital cameras. No purchase is necessary to enter the sweepstakes. Consumers are encouraged to enter the Tigressa Sweepstakes online.
