Our Sustainable Product Vision

               

Create resilient fibers that deliver on our brand promises, use fewer finite resources, extend garment wear life, and ultimately can be recycled or composted at end of life.

  • 25
    products awarded Gold Level Material Health certificates
  • 100%
    of all LYCRA® apparel fibers are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® (Class 1, Appendix 6)
  • 100%

Let Us Help You Meet Your Sustainability Commitments

From fibers made with recycled and renewable materials to quality fibers that create durable garments, we are an industry leader in developing sustainable fashion solutions.

Investing in Circularity

We are fully invested in developing next generation technologies that will enable fabrics made with our fibers to be recycled at end of life, and in developing industrial compostable fibers for certain unique applications. These innovations are designed to deliver on our industry’s goal to close the loop—going beyond just having recycled fibers as input to ensuring those fibers can be recyclable or compostable at end of life.

We have started this process with COOLMAX® EcoMade and THERMOLITE® EcoMade technologies made from 100% textile waste. For LYCRA® fiber specifically, our long-term goal is to extract LYCRA® fiber from used garments, collect it, and re-spin it into new LYCRA® fiber.
