Post pandemic, the world is slowly coming back to normalcy and people are opting for comfortable and attractive essentials to refurnish their wardrobes that are crafted out of eco-friendly performance fabrics.
The largest elastane manufacturer in the world and also a global textile solutions provider, Hyosung, is set to launch an interesting motley of materials and concept garments at Interfilière Paris. These fabrics and garments are developed by the manufacturer’s Fashion Design Centre (FDC) to help designers and product developers come up with garments created out of its innovative yarns.
Hence, Hyosung will launch its new Ocean Protection Initiative and continuous textile innovation solutions to intimates, loungewear, and swimwear labels at the Interfilière.
Mike Simko, Hyosung Global Marketing Director-Textiles said that cleaning up our seas is quite critical and imperative to Hyosung and several of their brand partners. Hyosung’s new ocean-based recycled fibre will allow labels to develop eco-friendly items that are in sync with their sustainability needs as well as help connect with their consumers with a meaningful story.
The company’s Ocean Protection Initiative will be about 100% recycled polyester fibre crafted out of ocean plastic, which is Ocean Bound Plastic (OBP) certified, which is created by Zero Plastic Oceans to transparently certify that plastic waste is collected and managed correctly. MIPAN regen ocean will receive this certification in the first quarter of next year.
Simko stated that through a brand partner survey recently the company has learned that many have individual sustainability priorities and the company had a wide range of portfolio of sustainable solutions to meet brands’ varied needs.
