THE FABRIC WE USE
78% ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon, 22% LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ - Made in Italy
Our eco luxe collection is made from ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon. It is made by recovering nylon waste – such as fishing nets from the oceans and aquaculture, fabric scraps from mills and carpets destined for landfill – and turning it into virgin quality nylon yarn. It's exactly the same as brand new nylon and can be recycled, recreated and remoulded again and again.
The ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon is then blended with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fibre, a unique technology that makes fashion tougher so it can fight against fading and hold its shape wear after wear. This fibre technology is designed to provide a long-lasting fit and resist degradation from chlorinated water, the heat and sunscreen lotions up to 10 times longer than unprotected fabrics.

01_Rescue The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible.
02_Regenerate 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 virgin nylon.
03_Remake ECONYL® regenerated nylon is processed into carpet yarn and textile yarn for the fashion and interior industries.
04_Reimagine 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® is our first step on that journey.
