Asahi Kasei has doubled its commitment to smart sustainability by bagging the Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C) Innovation Institute’s gold level material health certificate. This new C2C certification is an important evolution of its sustainably designed stretch yarn programme, offering a dynamic and enlarged portfolio to the current Global Recycling Standard.

The company has also expanded its stretch yarn range with Roica Feel Good family of premium stretch that promises a new level of well-being performance, with feel-good comfort and freshness. "The Roica CF yarn delivers an odour-neutralising function that does not wash or wear out. Its active ingredient is locked in and only needs a modest percentage to work in any fabric matrix. This yarn is also a Hohenstein environment compatibility certificated yarn already, signifying at its end-of-life, it smartly breaks down without releasing harmful materials," the company said in a press release.

The Roica Eco Smart family is the world-first leader in premium eco-sustainable stretch yarns with proven credentials for market savvy choices that meet contemporary business needs and consumer desires for all the garments in their modern wardrobe, for fashion, athleisure, sportswear, intimates and swimwear.
