Committed to investing in continuous innovation, Hyosung will introduce its latest sustainable textile solutions at the Functional Fabric Fair, Portland, OR on April 4 -5, booth 1413A.
Highlighted will be Hyosung’s new USDA and SGS-certified creora® bio-based Black elastane partly made with renewable resources, providing reduced carbon emissions compared to production of conventional elastane. In addition, the company will also launch its 3rd party-certified, 100% recycled creora® regen Black elastane, delivering water-saving options for a more sustainable production process. Both fibres provide a deeper, darker black color to help eliminate grin-through, together with the same powerful stretch and recovery benefits as its conventional creora® Black elastane.
“Several brands approached us to develop a dope-dyed Black elastane with the additional benefits of being partly made from renewable resources or 100% recycled”, said Simon Whitmarsh-Knight, Hyosung Global Marketing Director - Textiles. “So, it made perfect sense take the technology used to make our successful creora® Black elastane and add it to our creora® regen and creora® bio-based elastane to meet our customers’ diverse needs.”
Also at the show, Hyosung will present fabrics from global mill partners developed with its new regen ocean, a GRS-certified, 100% recycled nylon made from discarded fishing nets and other reclaimed nylon waste. Hyosung conducts an extensive collection, chemical recycling, and creation process to produce exceptional-quality yarn that meets brands’ performance expectations and contributes to their corporate sustainability goals.
“Cleaning up our oceans is critically important for the health of our planet”, said Whitmarsh-Knight. “With our ocean-based recycled fibre offering, brands can produce fully traceable eco-friendly products that are in line with their sustainability objectives and convey a compelling message to consumers.”
To better help product developers and designers envision products made with Hyosung’s comprehensive range of performance fibres, Hyosung will have a broad assortment of fabrics and concept garments developed by its Fashion Design Center (FDC) on display. In addition to creora® regen Black elastane, creora® bio-based Black elastane and regen ocean, other featured yarns include:
- creora® regen: 3rd party-certified, 100% recycled elastane
- creora® bio-based: elastane made with 30% renewable resources
- creora® color+: acid/reactive dyeable elastane
- regen xanadu: made with a blend of recycled post-consumer PET and corn-based materials
