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, says leading fibre producer Hyosung.

While still unable to gather in person at trade shows for the time being, Hyosung will present its latest sustainable fibre developments to the tightknit denim community during Kingpins24 FLASH virtual event taking place 23-24 February 2021.

Among its sustainable fibre solutions, Hyosung will highlight its GRS-certified, 100% recycled creora regen elastane made from reclaimed waste, which has been in demand since its launch in 2020.

“Because we make our creora regen elastane from 100% 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 elastane 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% recycled content”, said Jóse R. Royo, Sales Director, Tejidos Royo.

Hyosung will also share developments with its 3D Max creora elastane, 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 elastane eliminates the need for stretch polyester and the fabric can be treated for environmentally friendly laser washing to create distressed looks.
