A ‘Green Collection’ of upcyled yarns has been launched by the European Spinning Group. As per a Textile Focus report, the yarns are upcycled from discarded jeans or recycled polyester, mixed with fibers such as such as Tencel®, rPET, raw white and dope dyed fibers. They can be used for various high-end textile applications such as furnishing fabrics, fashion garments or technical textiles.
European Spinning Group continuously invests in modern machinery and integrated waste management systems. The group also offers a wide range of high-quality ecological solutions. It has launched the #hackyourjeans project to focus on stimulating circular product development and co-creation, increasing awareness and social impact by providing full transparency about the production process and visualizing products with online and offline presence.
The project offers a new and unique way of industrial collaboration, where knowledge on the production side and feedback from the end consumer is continuously shared, in a very open way. This facilitates product development and accelerates market development.
