Odyssey The Odyssey carpet pattern

Like a weft strewn with light

Like a weft strewn with light

Odyssey, the inaugural design from the Recreative heavy-footfall carpet collection, is inspired by the irregular weave of a mottled fabric. The vibrant pattern changes with the light, banishing monotony. Unpredictable and luminous, it seems to capture threads of light between its meshes. Are these reminiscent of the recycled fishing nets that make up Econyl® Li yarn? Perhaps... In any case, you are walking on a floor with a reduced environmental footprint. And what's more, you don't make any noise. It's ideal for heavy-footfall areas such as corridors, for instance. Not coincidentally, the pattern of this noise-reducing carpet is designed to facilitate connections. The grid’s design can be connected both lengthwise and widthwise, which is particularly useful for T-shaped corridors. Finally, the seven colours of Odyssey are not particularly eye-catching, but rather harmonise tactfully with the existing atmosphere.

Choose carpet for the best sound insulation
  • Carpets reduce impact noises by 25 to 34 dB.
  • To achieve the same sound insulation effect with hard flooring, you would need to lay it 60 cm thick (PVC, tiles, parquet).
  • A perfect way to reduce noise from neighbouring apartments (alpha w >= 0.25).
  • Your carpet's soundproofing can also be boosted by using a Confort+ felt backing for broadloom carpets or a removable Sonic Booster Layer for Balsan carpet tiles
Econyl® carpet yarn: an innovative and environmentally friendly solution
  • Currently, the sea is awash with old, abandoned fishing nets. A nylon fishing net takes 600 years to biodegrade and is a danger to fish and other marine life.
  • In partnership with Aquafil, our long-standing supplier of polyamide thread, Balsan is part of an innovative recycling initiative that uses old fishing nets collected from the sea. 
  • This innovative ECONYL® recycling scheme transforms the net after depolymerisation into the nylon fibres used to create our green, 100% made in France carpets.
Choose carpet for unbeatable comfort.
  • Touch your carpet, caress its lush, silky pile, imagine resting your bare feet on its downy surface… a carpet takes you on a sensory journey. 
  • Comforting, insulating and even opulent, a thick carpet is a must for relaxation spaces such as your bedroom or living room.
  • The thickest carpets can be laid in these rooms, which have the lowest volume of traffic.
  • Why wait? Treat yourself to gentle awakenings and quiet moments just for you!
French quality at an affordable price!
  • Our aim is to offer you the perfect carpet for your needs. Installing carpet for your flooring material of choice allows you to combine comfort, durability and affordability: Excellent heat and sound insulation, carpet also traps allergens.
  • Balsan carpet flooring is extremely competitive in price when compared with hard flooring solutions! Why wait any longer? Dive right into a sensory experience with the best quality/price ratio!
