Presentation of our new icons
After our last jury meeting for the PERFORMANCE DAYS forum we realized that new technologies enriched the textile market. For this reason we created new icons for you to easily find fabrics in The Loop that are produced with these sustainable methods.
Carbon Capture: Innovative carbon capture technology uses carbon that already exists in life to make polyester raw materials, effectively reducing resource consumption and contributing to the sustainability of the earth.
Car Tires: At the end of the lifecycle of tires, waste tires are converted into nylon raw materials by chemical recycling, which can effectively reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and contribute to the sustainability of the earth.
Textile Waste: Upcycling of pre-consumer cotton scraps from garment production contributes to circular economy.
