The LYCRA Company, a global leader in developing innovative fibre and technology solutions for the apparel industry, will exhibit its latest market-driven products for denim at Kingpins Amsterdam, October 23-24. As part of its long-term commitment to sustainability and the company’s Planet Agenda platform, The LYCRA Company will be introducing LYCRA® EcoMade fiber at the invitation-only trade show. This new fiber is the company’s first branded elastane/spandex product that is made with pre-consumer recycled materials

 

LYCRA® EcoMade fiber offers the same lasting comfort, fit and freedom of movement as the original LYCRA® fiber, but is made with waste collected at the company’s manufacturing sites and blended with virgin fiber at specific concentrations. This reduces waste and puts it back into production.

“A recent study* showed that two out of three respondents thought sustainability is one of the top three issues impacting our world today, and over 50% said they wanted to improve their footprint in the area of textile and apparel waste. Our EcoMade solutions will help our customers meet the consumer’s need for more sustainable apparel.”

Jean Hegedus

Sustainability Director

The LYCRA Company

Product Sustainability is one of the three interdependent pillars in The LYCRA Company’s Planet Agenda, which also includes Corporate Responsibility and Manufacturing Excellence. This framework represents the company’s commitment to developing products and technologies that minimize its environmental footprint, enhancing the performance of its customers’ offerings, and safeguarding the health and safety of its employees and the communities where they work.

We believe sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement that touches every aspect of our business, from reducing energy, water usage and waste at our sites to developing new products with excellent performance and a smaller footprint.” said Hegedus. “As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability we have also set a goal to convert the vast majority of our COOLMAX® and THERMOLITE® fiber business to EcoMade (post-consumer recycled) versions by 2021.

Invited trade show guests are welcome to visit The LYCRA Company stand to see its latest innovations for denim designed with sustainability in mind. Kingpins will take place October 23-24 at The Gashouder Building, Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. Hours are Wednesday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Thursday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more show information, visit kingpinsshow.com/Amsterdam.
