Hyosung, a comprehensive fibre manufacturer providing innovation and solutions to the textile industry, will present its latest sustainable fibre developments to the tightknit denim community during Kingpins24 Flash virtual event taking place February 23-24, 2021. Hyosung’s 100 per cent recycled creora regen spandex is grabbing attention of denim industry.
“With sustainability, traceability and transparency at the top of the denim industry’s agenda, mills and brands are seeking fibre technology solutions to help them create the most responsibly made, eco-friendly denim products,” the South Korea-headquartered company said.
Among its sustainable fibre solutions, Hyosung will highlight its GRS-certified, 100 per cent recycled creora regen spandex made from reclaimed waste, which has been in demand since its launch in 2020.
“Because we make our creora regen spandex from 100 per cent reclaimed waste, we are helping our customers make a fully sustainable denim product,” said Mike Simko, Hyosung Global Marketing Director-Textiles.
Hyosung’s creora regen spandex has caught the attention of Tejidos Royo, a leading denim innovator and manufacturer committed to sustainability.
“What is really exciting for us in working with Hyosung is that they have the textile solution that will allow us to make denim fabric made from 100 per cent recycled content,” said Jóse R Royo, Sales Director, Tejidos Royo.
At Kingpins24 Flash, Hyosung will also share developments with its 3D Max creora spandex, which allows denim products to have dual performance features – ultra-stretch and excellent recovery that lasts over time.
According to Simko, denim made with 3D Max creora spandex eliminates the need for stretch polyester and the fabric can be treated for environmentally friendly laser washing to create distressed looks.
In addition to its 100 per cent recycled regen creora spandex and 3D-Max creora spandex, Hyosung will present three other eco-friendly, multi-function fibres—Mipan regen aqua x: recycled cool-touch nylon with UV protection; regen askin: recycled cool-touch polyester with UV protection; and regen aerolight: recycled lightweight polyester with high-performance moisture management.
