ECONYL® regenerated nylon
The fashion industry is insatiable – but our planet’s resources are not infinite. By using only recycled materials for our sports bras and shorts, the use of new, finite raw materials is reduced. We source our high-quality fabrics from Italy, which consist of ECONYL® regenerated nylon .
ECONYL® yarn is a 100% regenerated nylon made from nylon waste, that otherwise pollutes the planet, such as fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpeting and industrial plastics. It’s the same as standard nylon and can be recycled, recreated, and remoulded infinitely. That means you create new products and buy new products without ever having to use new resources.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon is not only a solution for waste, but also better for climate change. It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with the material from oil.
The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all the nylon possible.
Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as standard nylon.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon is processed into carpet yarn and textile yarn for the fashion and interior industries.
The beauty of ECONYL® regenerated nylon is that it has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. We believe circular design is the future and using ECONYL® yarn is our first step on that journey.
