DESSO Recharge & Retrace


The Beauty of Circularity. DESSO Origin’s Recharge and Retrace carpet tiles are 100% recyclable, the result of a holistic design process. Here, the circular notion of “made to be remade” inspired both texture and pattern, with each product line reflecting the tactile beauty to be found in the perfect imperfection of the natural world.


Our Circular Carbon Footprint

Doing good for people and the planet means taking real steps to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, a major contributor to global warming.

Tarkett’s circular approach to carpet tiles enables us to do just that. The only carpet tile manufacturer with a closed-loop recycling system, we limit the use of virgin raw materials for new products, and avoid common, carbon-emitting options such as incineration and the landfill at product end-of-life.
DESSO Origin Circular Carbon Footprint

Lowest Circular Carbon Footprint

From the initial point of extraction through manufacturing, installation, use and recycling, we bear a responsibility for guiding the carpet on to its next life, over and over again.

Our closed-loop system ensures that our carpet tiles have the lowest circular carbon footprint* in Europe – one that is at least 6 times lower** than the total carbon footprint of our competitors.

Made to be Remade

The DESSO Origin collection is made to be remade. A truly circular product, it was designed to be disassembled so its components can be easily recycled into raw material for new carpet tiles. The result: a collection that combines technical expertise with tactility and textural beauty. For new, and renewed, beginnings.


Making conscious choices. For people and planet.
