A&E expands sustainable offering with Repreve

Magic using Repreve is said to provide eco-versatility for manufacturers to complete their athletic wear sustainability story.American & Efird (A&E), a leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial and consumer sewing thread, embroidery thread and technical textiles, has announced a product launch of a new recycled, air-entangled, polyester sewing thread, Magic using Repreve.

Building upon the success of Perma Core using Repreve released earlier this year, Magic using Repreve is said to provide eco-versatility for manufacturers to complete their athletic wear sustainability story in the sewing of performance apparel, activewear, athleisure, and intimate apparel.

Magic using Repreve incorporates Unifi’s Repreve fibre made from recycled plastic bottles, providing a highly sought-after eco-friendly performance sewing thread option for environmentally-conscious customers that is sized appropriately for the athletic wear and performance apparel markets.

Commitment to sustainability is one of A&E’s company pillars, the manufacturer explains. Recently, A&E launched Perma Core using Repreve joining Wildcat using Repreve, significantly expanded its number of Zero-Waste-to-Landfill facilities to 16, and joined the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) programme, thus continuing its leadership role in the areas of sustainability and social responsibility.
