How choosing more sustainable materials makes a world of difference?

Today, 60% of our products use renewable materials. And our goal is that all our materials will be renewable or recycled by 2030. Over the years, we’ve made it easier than ever to find affordable home furnishings that are better for the environment.


Wood, a material with many qualities

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. As part of our Scandinavian design heritage, we love working with wood because it's an excellent material from a design, quality and environmental perspective, provided that it comes from responsibly managed forests. Wood is also durable, renewable, recyclable and beautiful.

We prefer safe chemicals.

We constantly update and change our policies in line with our goal of choosing safe and healthy products. By removing chemicals that may have harmful effects from our production process, we offer you safe products and provide services that comply with your standards.

Stop using single-use plastic!

The geninue beauty of natural fibers

Prefer natural fibers such as linen, ramie, hemp or jute for your cushion covers. These plants do not need a large amount of water while growing; therefore, these responsible and renewable fabrics have little impact on the environment.


New natural fibres

Lyocell is a soft fiber made of wood. Because it has a breathing texture, you can have a cool and dry sleep when you are under the duvet made of lyocell. In lyocell production less water and pesticides are used than other textile materials.

Nice looking bamboo

Bamboo is stronger and more durable than most wood materials thanks to its long fibers. Bamboo used in IKEA products can grow up to one meter a day and is ready for harvest after 4-6 years. Fast-growing, renewable and good looking and also provided from responsible sources, bamboo enables us to produce excellent products that keep their quality over long periods of time.

Natural beauties

How do you think we balance both the desire to use products made from natural materials and the need to conserve the world's natural resources? We use natural fibers that people see as waste material, such as coconut shell, water hyacinth and seaweed.

For the love of linen

Linen was used by very few people in the past. Now everyone has access to linen products. With this natural material requires less water and pesticides, soft and breathable bedlinen are produced for a better quality night's sleep.
